Standard Graphite Corp. (TSXV:SGH) announced that a 3000 m diamond drilling program aimed at qualifying and expanding the historical resource as well as exploring for additional potential resources elsewhere on the project has commenced on the Mousseau East property.
As quoted in the press release:
Standard is also planning additional diamond drilling outside of the main zone targeted at expanding the historical resource along strike and at depth. Previous work during the diamond drill programs completed between 1989 and 1992 has shown that the resource remained opened in every direction and also at depth. The drill holes have been planned to intersect the extension of the current mineralization at shallow depths. Lastly, the program will conclude with the testing of some additional targets that have been highlighted during the airborne geophysical survey and currently being investigated on surface.
Standard Graphite President and CEO Chris Bogart said:
This drill program is significant for Standard as it will allow us to confirm and target expansion of the historical resource. Our recent geologic work and interpretations have shown that the potential is excellent both in the direct extension of the current Mousseau body and elsewhere on the property.
