It disclosed that the programme proposed 300m worth of diamond and 1250m reverse circulation (RC) drilling.

A similar drilling project carried out by Moydow in nearby tenements at the Dagma prospect was previously geared towards identifying important and significant gold mineralization in quartz veins easier discovered by artisanal miners.
