Great Western Exploration ignites drills at Firebird Gold Project, WA

Great Western Exploration (ASX:GTE) has officially begun a follow-up reverse circulation (RC) drill program at its Firebird Gold Project in Western Australia. 

The $10.61 million market capitalisation company’s follow-up program will test a ‘large’ soil anomaly that spans 3.7km by 450m, with no previous drill testing done in the area prior to exploration completed by Great Western. 

Great Western expects this program to be completed in early August 2023. 

This program’s results will help Great Western design an ‘extensive’ drill program infilling the broad-spaced aircore drilling across the soil anomaly.
