Mawson Resources Ltd (TSE:MAW) saw shares advance Thursday as it updated on drilling in Finland and said it expects first assays in early March from the Rajapalot gold-cobalt project.

The drilling is targeting electromagnetic geophysical (EM) plates that are contiguous and extend down plunge from the inferred mineral resource area of 424,000 ounces of gold at 3.1 g/t (grams per ton) gold-equivalent.

Fourteen holes for 5,040 metres were completed in the first month and the focus is on the Raja, South Palokas and Palokas prospects, the Vancouver-based company said in a statement.

"Four rigs continue to target EM extensions below and along strike from the maiden resource area," said Michael Hudson, the chairman and CEO at Mawson.

The firm recently gained a new exploration permit which provides a three-year runway for drilling from 200 new drill platforms, which Hudson says is a 'game changer' for Mawson. 

"We have dealt with the Finnish appeal system for each drill program over the long term, and we are very happy to have reached agreement with all environmental authorities on how exploration in the area should be conducted over the next 3 years. In combination with the wonderful support from local communities, we can now continue exploring without further delays," he said.

The 1,462-hectare Kairamaat 2/3 exploration permit allows Mawson to drill from 200 drill platforms (from 529 optional sites) plus 76 existing drill platforms for a further three years.

Shares in Toronto advanced 8.7% to stand at $0.25.
