Group Eleven Resources Corp (CVE:ZNG) (OTCMKTS:GRLVF) said it has commenced diamond drilling at its PG West zinc-lead and copper-silver project near Limerick in the Republic of Ireland.
The drilling at PG West is expected to total around 1,000 metres with drilling on the first hole having commenced on May 22 to an expected depth of 300-400 metres.
The target hole consists of the base of the Waulsortian limestone on the southern edge of the Limerick Volcanic Complex, along the Pallas Green Corridor. This hole is located 250 meters south of hole G11-450-02 - the ‘Kilteely hole’ - which intersected the outer margin of a suspected new Irish-Type zinc-system.
The Kilteely prospect itself is located around 10 kilometres southeast of the Pallas Green zinc deposit, which has an estimated mineral resource of 45.4 million tonnes of 7% zinc and 1% lead in the Inferred category.
Group Eleven said the results are expected to be released at the end of the entire drill program in due course.
