Cardinal expects the RC exploration drill holes to be between 80 m and 120 m depths. If required, the drill holes will be extended by diamond core drilling.

Twin diamond core drilling for quality control purposes will begin from surface alongside selected RC drill holes to gather structural data and specific gravities of the different lithological units.

Some significant results from recent RC drilling north of the confirmed mineralised zone include:

  • 99 m @ 1.21 g/t
  • 83 m @ 1.41 g/t
  • 67 m @ 3.10 g/t

Some significant results from RC drilling within the confirmed mineralised zone include:

  • 51 m @ 3.58 g/t
  • 43 m @ 2.27 g/t
  • 42 m @ 2.35 g/t

Site preparation of drill pads and access roads is currently underway for this drilling programme.

Cardinal has established an express assaying service for its drilling results, enabling it to continuously improve its drill plan strategy as new information becomes available.

The company will continue drilling selective holes, submitting the samples and be on standby as results are received. Once the results have been assessed, Cardinal can plan further drill holes to maximise expansion of the gold inventory within the Namdini project.
