A new drilling programme is to be initiated at the Woodlawn mine, near Tarago.
This does not signify drilling operations proper and alludes more to further investigation.
Heron Resources has announced a follow-up drilling initiative which will target resource expansion at the shallow G2 Lens position which revealed significant results in 2016.
This represented the first sign of minerals to be accessed in the new underground mine.
Heron CEO, Wayne Taylor says the latest work is an important component which will lead to optimum result.
He says a drilling contract has been entered into and the rig and crew will mobilise in late April with the programme taking two to three months to complete.
