AuKing Mining plans to launch a 1,000m drilling program in Halls Creek, Western Australia, to explore copper mineralisation north of the Sandiego deposit.

The decision stems from geological surveys and past drilling efforts pinpointing a copper zone approximately 700m north of the Sandiego deposit within the Koongie Park Copper/Zinc Project.

The program targets the Sandiego North area, building upon previous soil geochemistry findings confirming a clear anomalous copper corridor extending toward the Sandiego deposit.

It involves approximately six to eight reverse circulation drill holes, with potential for additional drilling based on initial findings.
