Great Western Mining Corp PLC said that it received approval from the United States Forest Service for its 2019 drill program at the M4 copper-gold project in Nevada. The company is planning to drill further 6 bore holes to follow up on the successful 2018 program, where a large quartz-copper vein was intercepted. The new holes will test the extent of the breccia veining and the potential buried sulphide ore body, projected below by a significant IP anomaly.

However, with regards to the M2 project, also in Nevada, the company said it has now submitted a revision notice for the existing permit to the United States Bureau of Land Management.

Great Western is planning to drill a further two deep holes to target a deeply buried zone within the host diorite rock, down plunge from the current M2 oxide copper resource. Approval for the company's application is expected to be received in four to six weeks, with first drilling in the summer.

Chief Executive Mr David Fraser said that "The company is currently conducting an extensive sampling programme on a number of its target areas ahead of this year's drilling programme on M2 and M4. The proposed drilling involves a number of deep holes targeting the potential sources of the mineralisation encountered at and near surface of both projects."
