  • Drilling targets include:

    • Adumbi Deposit -> expand resource estimate by drilling along strike and at depth; turn inferred resources to measured (2 dedicated drills).

    • Further drilling on nearby Kitenge and Manzako prospects; and drill Vatican and Adumbi North.

    • Initial drilling on PE 9692 (NW Somituri).

  • Additional metallurgical test work is in progress and petrographic studies are planned.

  • Mapping, trenching, soil sample of other Somituri licenses to determine new potential drill targets.
