Two Mile Project Drilling Update
Diamond drill core hole DDH-006 was started on December 10th. The core hole will be HQ-size down to at least 4,000 FT to facilitate a potential future wedge-off drilling point that could be used to develop a mineral resource. Below the wedge-off point, the core hole will be narrowed down to NQ-oversize to reduce the drilling friction and increase the depth capability of the high-strength NRQ drill rods. Target Total Depth (“TD”) has not been decided at this time.
Diamond drill core hole DDH-005B is in the process of being wedged-off of hole DDH-005A at a depth of approximately 4,000 FT. High strength NRQ drill rods and an oversize NQ drill bit are also being used for hole DDH-005B to reduce drilling friction and increase the likelihood of being able to achieve the target TD of 9,500 FT.
