Larvotto Resources (ASX:LRV) has started a geophysical survey at its epithermal gold project in New Zealand which contains a large gold mineralisation endowment.

The Ohakuri gold project lies in the Taupo Volcanic Zone and has been partially explored since the 1970?s, and recently remodelled geophysics highlight largely missed targets.

Larvotto's Managing Director Ron Heeks says the survey should provide well defined targets to drill test the conduits that moved the gold to surface from its deep source.

The company's share price is $0.20 this morning.
