Bert Monro, CEO of Cora, commented: “To have two more holes of over 100 gramme metres, taking the total number of +100 gramme metre holes to 13 in this drill campaign, is extremely exciting and also very encouraging as we approach an updated mineral resource estimate (‘MRE'). The results continue to show good consistency of widths and grades in oxide ore which offers us further encouragement as we look towards the DFS which is already underway.
“The RC drill campaign is now complete and we will expect the final assay results over the coming weeks in advance of an updated MRE.”
