Ximen Mining Corp (CVE:XIM) (OTCMKTS:XXMMF) is poised to get exploring again at its flagship Brett gold property near Vernon in British Columbia, the group revealed on Wednesday.

In a statement, the firm told investors it was planning a drone-based magnetometer survey in a bid to further extend a previously identified anomaly west of the Main Zone at the project.

The Brett epithermal property spans 20,025 hectares and historical drill intercepts include up to 168 grams per ton (g/t) gold over 1.3 metres (m) core length, while visible gold is common at the property.

The property hosts multiple zones of high and low grade gold, including at the Main zone, the RW Pit, the Stockwork zone and the Gossan zone.

In May, outlining its broader plans for work this summer, Ximen said it was working with the Ministry of Mines to review and approve a proposed program at Brett, which includes 200 metres of underground drift along the Main Zone followed by underground diamond drilling.

"A ground magnetic survey conducted in 2014 indicated the Main Zone is defined as a modest northwest-trending magnetic low anomaly, and the survey identified a broad magnetic low anomaly west of the Main Zone that extends west to the limits of the survey," Ximen said.

"Additional magnetics surveying using a drone is going to be trialed on the property with the aim to extend this anomaly further to the west."

Ximen also confirmed in Wednesday's statement that it had now divested its interests in the Gold Drop Property in southern British Columbia to GGX Gold Corp (CVE:GGX).

Ximen will retain a 2.5% net smelter returns royalty which GGX Gold may buy down 1% of by paying C$1 million.
