Drilling is warranted at the Tokusei and Motoyama prospects. Diamond drill-holes are proposed to test the southwestern extensions of the vein system at Tokusei, proximal to the Miocene sedimentary – volcanic lithological contact.
The down-dip extension of the upper, mercury-bearing portions of the Motoyama vein system is also recommended for drill testing. Holes are proposed to target a possible intact gold-silver zone at depth.
Low-impact exploration activities are recommended across the eastern part of the Aibetsu Project. Available stream sediment data indicate possible gold mineralization in the southeastern portion of Aibetsu.
