At Bygoo North, the main target will be to define and extend the newly discovered "Dumbrells" greisen which runs north-south through the old Dumbrells shallow pit (see Figure 1 in link below, also see TMZ ASX release 19 March 2018).
The Tin drill program also includes several targets in the Big Bygoo area that lies around two kilometres south of the discoveries at Bygoo North and South. The prospects occur as outcropping greisens running for several hundred metres each. Many old workings have been sunk on the outcropping greisens with active mining taking place between 1912 and 1939. According to Mine Records at least 10,600 tons of ore was mined from shallow depths, containing around 200 tons of tin. This is similar to the Mine Record production from Bygoo North.
A second drill program is planned at the Harry Smith Prospect, south of Ardlethan, to follow up on the Company's strong gold results from its inaugural drilling, including the 54m at 1.0 g/t Au from a depth of 8m intersected near the Golden Spray workings (see ASX release 23 March 2018).
In all, around 3,000m of drilling is planned, the largest program undertaken to date by Thomson in the Ardlethan district. Drilling is planned to commence in mid-October.
