The regional reconnaissance RAB/AC drill program comprises 112 holes, covering 4,500m project area.

The program focus on priority targets for both gold and base metal potential, including the Axford gold prospect and grass roots geophysical, structural and geochemistry/historic drill targets throughout the project area.

The project area includes sections of the prospective interpret extension of the Yamarna Shear Zone and underexplored Mount Gill Greenstone Belt.

Goldphyre Resources technical director Brenton Siggs said although recent heavy rains throughout the Eastern Goldfields have delayed the commencement of drilling, the company is pleased to have the drill rig on site testing a range of gold and base metal targets.

"We look forward to completing this regional reconnaissance program and generating some excellent targets for a follow-up RC drilling campaign," added Siggs.

The drilling program is expected to be completed within four weeks and first assay results are expected in late June 2014.
