Group Ten Metals Inc. (PGE:TSX.V; PGEZF:OTCQB; 5D32:FSE) announced in a news release that the drill rig and crew arrived and are preparing to commence work at the company's Stillwater West platinum group elements-nickel-copper-cobalt property in Montana.
The Titan Drilling crew is readying to drill the Discovery target at Stillwater West's Chrome Mountain.
"We are pleased to announce the arrival of the drill to Stillwater West for what is expected to be our largest exploration program yet as we target precious and battery metals, including high-grade gold, in a famously productive district," President and CEO Michael Rowley said in the release.
In advance of the expansion drilling, an induced polarization geophysical survey, currently underway, will be completed over 66 line kilometers of the property. With the survey, Simcoe Geoscience is concentrating on the most advanced target areas, which are Discovery, Pine, Camp and HGR, "with coverage extending from known mineralized zones into adjacent targets," the release noted. The aim is to help better define the targets for the impending drilling.
"These two exploration methods are expected to form a powerful combination as we expand from known mineralization into untested adjacent targets defined by coincident and high-level soil and conductive anomalies," Rowley noted.
Also, Group Ten is prioritizing advancement of high-grade gold mineralization that it encountered on previous drilling of the Pine target.
The firm noted that "geological mapping and prospecting programs have been underway since June at earlier-stage targets. Early results have returned high-grade precious metal values in rock samples from the Blakely target area, including 7.10 g/t 3E (4.25 g/t Pt, 1.97 g/t Pd, and 0.88 g/t Au) in sample 3191471."
The company continues with smaller programs that include mapping and sampling at less advanced targets, such as Blakely.
"It is an exciting time for the Company as we are well funded and have permits in place to begin to fully test and expand upon our 'Platreef-in-Montana' model, based on known similarities with the Bushveld Complex. We look forward to providing additional news from Stillwater West as we work to expand known mineralization and convert drill-defined mineralized zones to mineral resources in the most advanced target areas," Rowley stated.[NLINSERT]
