Wallbridge Mining Company Limited announced that it plans to increase the number of drills to six from four at its 100% owned Fenelon Gold Property. A fifth drill arrived on site yesterday and a sixth drill will be mobilized in the coming weeks. The additional drills will enable Wallbridge to accelerate and increase its 2019 exploration program in the Main Gabbro and Area 51 zones. Over 35,000 total metres have been drilled to date in 2019. The revised program, with six drills operating, will be on track to complete 70,000-80,000 metres by the end of the year. Five rigs (four surface, one underground) will be active on exploration drilling, doing large-spaced step-outs to define the footprint of the Fenelon gold system and one underground drill rig will continue testing the Naga Viper, Cayenne and Tabasco zones near the existing mine workings.

Assay results are pending for 23 surface drill holes and eight underground holes, including 25 intervals with visible gold. With widespread gold mineralization over hundreds of metres, especially in Area 51, the processing, sampling and assaying of the drill holes takes considerable time. Wallbridge will continue to report meaningful, complete composites once all assay results from each hole are received.
