Saville Resources Inc. said March 25 that it expects to kick off a maiden drill program on the Niobium Claim Group property in Quebec this week.
The program is anticipated to run for about a month, focusing on further characterizing the mineralized trend at the Mallard target toward the southeast of the property. It will involve at least four drill holes for a minimum of 700 meters.
The company said first-phase drilling will provide the foundation to advance toward an initial mineral resource estimate.
Saville signed an option to acquire a 75% interest in the property from Commerce Resources Corp. in January 2018.
