Venus Metals Corporation Ltd (ASX:VMC) has begun reverse circulation drilling at the Youanmi North, Sovereign and Taylor’s Reef Prospects with its Joint Venture partner Rox Resources Limited (ASX:RXL).

Two targets at Younmi North are broadly associated with anomalous gold intersections in historical drill holes at the north-trending gold anomaly in historical soil data that extends into granite terrain.

RC drilling at Sovereign is searching for potential extensions of high-grade gold mineralisation down dip and along a newly defined northeast target trend similar to the orientation of high-grade gold reefs at the Currans North and Red White and Blue Prospects.

Drilling at Taylor’s Reef will test the down-dip and along-strike extensions of previously discovered high-grade gold mineralisation.

The current RC program totals approximately 2200m, and results are expected in a few weeks.
