Additional drilling outside of the deposit has revealed further mineralisations and “extend[ed] the high-grade zones up to 400m beyond the limit of the current Resource pit shell,” Chalice notes.

The release notes that Chalice is also in ongoing “access discussions” to obtain what it calls “the Julimar State Forest, Bindoon Training Area and private farming properties”.
