Defense Metals Corp. (DEFN:TSX.V; DFMTF:OTC; 35D:FSEQB) announced in a news release it contracted with Falcon Drilling to conduct drilling at the minerals explorer's Wicheeda rare earth elements project in British Columbia.
The 2,000 meter surface core drill program is slated to begin in August and take about six weeks to complete. Currently, drill pads and a work camp are being prepared. All permits are in place for 51 drill sites.
The goal of the 2019 drill program is to further delineate and possibly expand the Wicheeda rare earth elements carbonatite deposit to update the project's mineral resource estimate.
"Drilling will test the northern, southern and western extent of the Wicheeda deposit where it is still open, further delineate the relatively higher-grade, near-surface dolomite carbonatite unit and address select internal drilling gaps within the deposit," noted the release.
