The Galileo Mining Ltd (ASX: GAL) share price is jumping today amid a new drilling program.

The miner’s share price is currently trading at $1.135, a 4% gain. For perspective, the S&P/ASX 200 Materials Index (ASX: XMJ) is down 1.44% today.

So what did Galileo report to the market today?

Drilling starts at Callisto discovery

Galileo has restarted drilling at the company’s Callisto discovery near Norseman in Western Australia.

The explorer will follow up palladium, platinum, gold, copper and nickel sulphide intersections reported to the market in May, June and July. 

RC drilling is now underway at about 50 drill holes. Priority targets will be tested for mineralisation.

Laboratory assay results are predicted to be ready from September.

Commenting on the news, managing director Brad Underwood said:

Following the approval of our work program from the Department of Mines (DMIRS), we are now able to begin testing the true extent of mineralisation discovered at Callisto.

We will be drilling on a 50-metre spacing around the previously announced drill results
as well as stepping out up to one kilometre to the north.

We believe the opportunity for discovering a large mineralised system is significant and we look forward to progressing this exciting new discovery.

A diamond drilling contract is also now signed with drilling to start from mid-August.
