Alto Metals commenced a 5,000m reverse circulation drilling program at the Sandstone Gold Project in Western Australia.

The program aims to explore extensions of up to 200m from known gold mineralisation beneath the historic Bull Oak open pit and untested areas around it.

Regional targets like Vanguard and Hacks North prospects will also undergo drilling.

The company is conducting low-cost multi-element soil sampling, with results pending for the Sandstone North program. Further drilling is planned for regional targets like Vanguard and Hacks North.
