(MENAFN - ProactiveInvestors - Australia) Enterprise Metals (ASX: ENT) has made the decision to postpone deep drill testing of the Vulcan Prospect primary zone due to heavy and intermittent rain closing access tracks to the drill sites.
Vulcan is part of the Doolgunna Project in Western Australia.
A reverse circulation rig has been on standby over the past seven days at the Doolgunna homestead, along with Enterprise's geological field crew.
An assessment of the track conditions yesterday led to the conclusion that the tracked drill rig and 6WD support truck would become severely bogged in any attempt to reach the drill sites before Christmas.
Enterprise has now advised the drilling contractor that it will postpone drilling until the first week in January, subject to fine weather and firm track surfaces.
The Vulcan "shoot" occurs centrally within a 1,500 metre long copper-gold soil anomaly, which has a VMS style multi-element association.
Enterprise has also defined further reverse circulation and aircore drill targets at Scotty, Sulu, McCoy and Nimoy.
These new anomalies include associated cobalt, gold, arsenic, bismuth and lead, and will be drill tested in the New Year.
