The Phase 2 drill program at SOUTHERNERA's Millennium platinum project on the Eastern Bushveld in South Africa began last August. Already seven out of the nine holes drilled have intersected the reef. The company says it is encouraged by these results. Average grades from all the holes range between 2.4 and 5.1 g/t PGE plus Au over an average width of 1.25 metres.
The Millennium program has delineated a significant and open-ended reef on the Rietkloof farm. Drill results will be averaged with the previous results on Blaauwbank, which has an inferred resources of 10.3 million tonnes, grading 4.46 g/t PGE plus Au.
