Lei Dultra, Communication Officer of Annamite Resources
The Sokdee Project, operated by Annamite's subsidiary, Lao Hyundae Black Stone (LHBS), is an exploration asset uncovering valuable mineral resources in the Vientiane Province of Laos. This project has garnered significant attention due to its potential for copper and gold mineralization.
LHBS, in cooperation with Rio Tinto Exploration (RTX), has been actively engaged in drilling the Mouk target. This drilling will allow geologists and geophysicists to gain insights into the porphyry deposit makeup.

As of the latest update, two inclined core holes, MK23-019DD and MK23-020DD, have been successfully completed, totalling 661 meters. Additionally, a third hole, MK23-021DD, is currently in progress and has reached a depth of 190 meters. These core holes are vital for obtaining samples from different depths of the Earth's crust to analyze the presence of valuable minerals.
The core samples obtained from the drilling process are currently being prepared for commercial analysis. This analysis will provide information about the mineral composition, grade, and economic viability of the target.
