The main zone is delineated only by shallow RC drilling, and remains open along strike and at depth as there has been little drilling below 120m.

“The Boscalo discovery is an indicator of gold mineralisation that lies hidden beneath the shallow limestone veneer,” managing director Ron Heeks said.

“Woodlark’s existing deposits only scratch the surface of the regi...
