Several areas were sampled with a hand core drilling method at various geological points (faults, gossan, stock work etc.) around the West Apliki deposit. In addition, five reverse circulation holes were drilled to verify the existing resource calculations that are based on past drilling results.
Geological and mineralogical description and chemical analysis were conducted. All the materials were sent at Orexplore facilities in Sweeden and were scanned with the X – Mine Drillcore Analyser.
