GoldStone Resources said a geochemical soil sampling programme has started within the Homase and Akrokeri licence areas to confirm known mineralisation and anomalies and extend the potential of the mineable material outside of the known resource.
It said approximately 6,000 samples, including those for quality control, over six target areas would be collected and assayed and the results reviewed for prospective anomalies.
It said sampling would be undertaken over a grid spacing of 50 metres by 20 metres.
It said: 'These are high priority exploration targets and if any soil sampling proves successful, detailed trenching and drilling will be considered.'
Chief executive Emma Priestley said: 'We are very pleased to confirm a number of anomalies and structures throughout the licences that we consider are worthy of this cost effective soil sampling programme, which will test the near-surface potential of these areas for additional oxides.'
