Saturn Metals Ltd (ASX:STN) has commenced a new resource extension and infill drilling program at its 100%-owned Apollo Hill Gold Project near Leonora in Western Australia.

The reverse circulation (RC) drilling program will be up to 43 holes for 5,600 metres and is aimed at rapidly growing the project’s 685,000-ounce gold grading 1.0 g/t gold JORC resource.

Drilling will target higher grade positions within the broader Apollo Hill system similar to the Armstrong and Eagle Shoots in the north of the deposit discovered in 2018.

Results from the drilling will be used in Saturn’s next planned resource upgrade later in 2019.
