Drill pads and a work camp are currently being prepared and drilling is expected to commence in early August. The purpose of the 2019 Wicheeda drill program is to further delineate, and potentially expand the Wicheeda REE carbonatite deposit leading to completion of an updated mineral resource estimate. Core drilling will: test the northern, southern and western extent of the Wicheeda deposit where it is still open; further delineate the relatively higher-grade near surface dolomite carbonatite unit; and address select internal drilling gaps within the deposit. Defense Metals expects to complete this work program in approximately six weeks.
