Canada-based Galahad Metals has commenced a diamond-drilling programme at its wholly-owned Regcourt Gold Project, 30 km east of Val-d'Or, Quebec.

The property comprises 53 claims covering over 32sq km squared in the eastern part of the Abitibi Greenstone Belt, one of the most prolific gold mining areas in Canada.

The planned exploration campaign, which is designed to explore and validate historic drill- and underground-intersections around the abandoned Regcourt Mine, will comprise nine holes and total 2,350m.

The historic data, which has been compiled into a 3-D Gemcom model, indicates that the mineralised vein system continues below the historic workings, which only reached 165m.

The drilling campaign will be followed by an ‘IPower3D’ array down-hole geophysical survey by Abitibi Geophysics of Val-d’Or, Quebec.

Core logging will be completed at the facilities of MRB & Associates of Val-d’Or.
