Group Eleven Resources kicks of maiden drill program at Zones 3 and 4 at Carrickittle zinc prospect in Ireland

Group Eleven Resources Corp said that a maiden drill program at Zones 3 and 4 of the Carrickittle zinc prospect at its PG West project in Ireland has started in a bid to select further drill targets for later this year. This latest diamond drilling is expected to total 2,700 metres (m) and is part of the company’s 2021, fully funded 5,000m program. Results are expected by September or October.

The company also told investors that a second drill rig had now been added to complete drilling at regional targets at the PG West project – at Croom, Denison, Ballywire and Oola – and to allow a timely re-start of drilling at Carrickittle. Drilling at Croom and Ballywire has now been completed with the last holes at Denison and Oola currently underway, the company said. “An update on these regional drill programs is expected over the next few weeks, once assays are received and interpretations are completed,” it added. Group Eleven is focused on advanced-stage zinc exploration in Ireland. Contact the author at giles@proctiveinvestors.com
