Forrestania launches heritage survey at Koolyanobbing

Forrestania Resources (ASX:FRS) has begun an Aboriginal heritage survey, with the support of the Marlinyu Ghoorlie people, at the Koolyanobbing Iron Project in Western Australia. 

The survey will cover 24 drill pads across several priority target areas and is expected to be completed over three days. 

Once completed, preliminary advice is expected within seven days. 

A comprehensive heritage report will be prepared and provided to Forrestania within 30 days. This delivery allows the company to move forward with its planned drilling program. 

Once received, Forrestania, which has a market capitalisation of $7.44 million, will begin its initial drilling program at Koolyanobbing, comprising 10 to 12 reverse circulation drillholes, each at 90m to 100m in depth. 

This program is a key component to Forrestania’s exploration strategy and is expected to advance the company’s understanding of the iron mineralisation potential at the project. 

Forrestania notes that it remains committed, alongside Netley Minerals, to ensure the protection of Aboriginal cultural heritage and has leveraged the existing heritage agreement between Netley and the Marlinyu Ghoorlie group to facilitate this process.
