Gold and base metals explorer Venus Metals Corporation has announced the start of phase one aircore (AC) drilling at its Henderson gold-nickel project in Western Australia’s eastern goldfields.

The Henderson project is situated along the southern section of the Ularring Greenstone Belt, about 50km northwest of Menzies, WA.

The project comprises five exploration licences covering about 800sq km. The current drilling is focused on tenement E30/520, which is held 90% by Venus and 10% by a prospector.

In today’s market update, Venus said the drilling will test structurally controlled gold targets that were identified last year in a review of historical exploration data and geological and geophysical interpretations.
