For 2022, an initial $6.4 million exploration budget has been assigned to Zgounder for a 30,000m drill program. A total of 22,500m will build on the 2021 successful near-mine drill program and has been designed to expand existing resources at depth and test strike extensions to the east. In Q3-2022, 7,500m of RC and diamond drilling began on the Zgounder Regional permits to follow up the targets identified by the airborne geophysics and mapping programs.
