Cadence Minerals PLC said July 27 that Auroch Minerals Ltd. secured permitting approval to conduct a maiden drill program at its Arden base metals project in South Australia.
The 2,500-meter reverse circulation and diamond drilling will test zinc, lead, copper and cobalt targets at the Ragless Range, Radford Creek and Kanyaka prospects.
Following the completion of access negotiations with the relevant landowners, a drill rig has begun mobilization to Arden. Drilling is expected to commence in the week of July 30.
Cadence owns about 7% of the equity in Auroch Minerals, which is an exploration company targeting principally zinc, cobalt and lithium.
