GALENA MINING LTD. (“Galena” or the “Company”) (ASX: G1A) announces that on conclusion of a detailed review of its 100% owned Jillawarra Project following the acquisition of the key Copper Chert tenement (see Galena ASX announcement of 29 June 2020), the Company has identified several priority targets and will commence drilling some of these targets in Q4, 2021.
The Company also plans to complete further airborne electromagnetic work which will increase the coverage area to approximately 50% including all the priority areas.
Managing Director, Tony James commented that in relation to the Jillawarra Project, “A detailed geological review of the entire Jillawarra tenement package has occurred following the acquisition of the Copper Chert area last year. Applying our greater understanding and knowledge we obtained from our Abra drilling program in 2020 we have been able to clearly identify some high priority targets at Jillawarra. Work on the ground will continue on four of these targets in the Woodlands Complex area this year and we have another three high priority targets that we also want to get busy on. This is an exciting period for the Edmund Sedimentary basin as Abra’s development provides a foundation for the opening up of this brand-new mineral province in Western Australia. Along with Abra, the 100% owned Jillawarra ground will be a significant chapter in the development of this region”.
