Pivotal Metals initiated drilling at its 100% owned Horden Lake Project in Quebec, Canada, deploying two rigs for a planned 35-hole program covering approximately 8,000m.

Objectives include assessing potential increases in payable grade by collecting assay data for metals not previously assayed, exploring tonnage upside in areas of limited density, and optimising flowsheet with metallurgical samples.

The drill program is expected to span two months.

Pivotal Metals will conduct downhole electromagnetic surveys and a drone-based magnetic survey, while results from the BAGB Project geophysics survey and Horden Lake mineralogical analysis are pending.
