This recent drillhole was located 220 metres west along strike from 21-TB-08 (Hole 4), with further blue quartz veins and sulphide noted. Additional work on the samples will be undertaken to better understand the nature of the gold.

Samples from the sixth hole have been sent for analysis and drilling has now commenced on the seventh hole of the drill programme, which is located 100 metres eastwards of Hole 5.

John Teeling, Chairman commented : "We continue to intercept more gold veins along strike at Tombreen. Although the bulk of the veins are low grade it proves the extension of them for hundreds of metres. This is now a substantial gold zone. The latest hole being drilled, Hole 7, is located 100m eastwards of Hole 5."
