The property is adjoined on its east boundary by the Southern Star / Exall Resources Gold Eagle property, who are currently proceeding with a successful major drill program. Skyharbour will establish a permanent grid (50-metre line spacing) and then follow up immediately with an Induced Polarization (IP) geophysical survey and a ground magnetic survey.
The Company has completed detailed programs of till sampling with follow up prospecting and soil sampling (MMI) in areas of elevated gold-in-tills with the objective to identify settings on the property that could potentially host significant gold deposits.
