Koonenberry Gold (ASX:KNB) announced that it received final approval from the NSW Resources Regulator to commence drilling at the Bellagio Prospect.

This marks the first-ever drilling program at the Bellagio Prospect.

The planned drilling program is designed to test high-grade gold assays from quartz veins, and gold in soil anomaly.

Preceding soil sample programs, and an Induced Polarisation (IP) survey revealed promising data for the presence of gold.
