START OF GEOPHYSICAL SURVEY AND SCOUT DRILLING AT NAMTHOM PORPHYRY PROSPECT, SOKDEE PROJECT
After completing geochemical soil sampling and mapping at Namthom and collecting a further 88 samples on a regional grid within the larger tenement the Annamite team is now working with a Laotian geophysical company to conduct a drone magnetic survey and a Singapore-based company to undertake scout diamond drilling, both at Namthom..
Three drill holes are planned for a total of 1,500-1,700m in May - June 2022, with drilling due to start the first week of May. Similtaneously the detailed drone survey is being flown over the Namthom prospect to outline magnetics and therefore better define the faulting, intrusive geometry and alteration halo patterns within the porphyry system.
