Alt Resources' recent acquisitions of the Bottle Creek Gold Project and neighbouring Mt Ida projects in Western Australia are part of the Company's strategy to make new discoveries and expand existing resources using modern exploration techniques.
Alt commenced reverse circulation (RC) drilling at Bottle Creek during the quarter as part of fast-tracking a pre-feasibility study for the project. Alt is aiming to establish a central gold production hub at Bottle Creek, where it could process ore from multiple open-pit operations at Bottle Creek, Mt Ida South and Quinns.
Alt also continued exploration of its Myalla and Paupong projects in NSW.
