The survey results will be provided to Minotaur Exploration Ltd. who will model and prioritize the drill targets. A 2000 + meter drill program will follow. The targets are an extension of the mineralized system intersected in a 2015 drill program located southwest of the Castlereagh VTEM anomaly.” commented Cruickshank.
