Galena to be­gin drilling at Abra

The Australian Mining Review - - NEWS: EXPLORERS ON THE MOVE - WA

BASE metal ex­plorer Galena Min­ing will start an ag­gres­sive drilling cam­paign at its wider Abra ten­e­ment pack­age where high-grade his­toric in­ter­sec­tions of cop­per, sil­ver, lead and zinc have been iden­ti­fied.

Ex­plo­ration will be con­ducted at the Wood­lands, Quartzite Well and Man­ganese Range prospects as part of a pre-feasibility study for Abra, sched­uled for com­ple­tion in Q4 2018.

“Whilst Abra as a stand­alone and glob­ally sig­nif­i­cant lead-sil­ver project is the core fo­cus of the com­pany we are also par­tic­u­larly in­ter­ested in giv­ing some at­ten­tion to the Wood­lands, Quartzite Well and Man­ganese Range prospects,” Galena chief ex­ec­u­tive Ed Turner said.
