Stone Resources Australia Ltd. said April 7 that wet weather has delayed the completion of drilling at the SRAL Brightstar North Ben Hur deposit, part of the Brightstar gold project in Western Australia.
The drilling is part of a due diligence process by VCS Civil and Mining Pty Ltd. to determine the viability of developing the project, which has experienced a six-week delay due to unfavorable conditions.
The company said it has completed reverse circulation drilling, while two diamond drill holes are pending.
VCS will submit a definitive program setting out the remaining tasks and timetable for the completion of the due diligence. Stone Resources expects the program to be submitted by April 20.
