Dundas Minerals (ASX: DUN) has announced the commencement of a first ever reverse circulation (RC) drilling program at its Matilda South exploration prospect.

A minimum of four deep RC holes of up to 400 metres are planned for the program, with additional holes scheduled around the Western Australian Government's exploration incentive scheme (EIS) co-funded drilling.

The drilling program is anticipated to complete in early March 2023, and is targeting a gravity anomaly interpreted as a mafic/ultramafic intrusive.

Dundas Minerals holds 12 contiguous exploration licences (either granted or under application) covering an area of 1,845km2 in the highly prospective southern Albany-Fraser Orogen, Western Australia.
