Winston Gold has defined a two-phase program to advance the Project to a mining stage:
Phase I – Exploration
A 5,500 ft (~1,675 m) drill program will test two priority targets – the Edna Trend and the Custer vein – to facilitate underground access, test for deeper sulphide mineralization and extend the Edna trend to the west.
Phase II – Test mining/Bulk Sampling
Winston proposes to open the Upper Hyantha Portal, widening the adit to allow access by modern mining equipment. A new decline will then be driven 300 feet to the north to meet the Edna Trend. Once veins are encountered, mining crews will begin test mining, and gold-bearing material will be sampled and shipped to a contract mill.
