Orsu Metals Corporation (CVE:OSU) has kicked off its 2018 exploration programme at the Sergeevskoe gold project in Russia.
The drilling campaign is to test new targets and build towards an estimation of a maiden resource at the project.
A total of 10,000 metres (m) of diamond drilling is planned, including 6,500-7,000 m of drilling at Zone 23, Adit 5 and Klyuchi West for a maiden inferred resource and 3,000-3,500 m allocated for new targets.
“In 2018, Orsu is planning to outline a maiden inferred resource at Zone 23, Adit 5 and Klyuchi West. The company will also undertake a metallurgy test of the primary sulphide mineralization, test new exploration targets and is planning to conduct a preliminary economic assessment of the Sergeevskoe gold project before the end of 2018,” disclosed Dr Alexander Yakubchuk, the director of exploration of Orsu.
