Alpha Exploration (ALEX) has started follow-up drilling at its Kerkasha Property in Eritrea.

The Vancouver-based junior mineral explorer will conduct work on three prospects on the property.

The drill program will total approximately 1,000 metres of diamond drilling and 3,000 metres of reverse-circulation drilling.

The three prospects are the most important on the project.

“This next round of drilling will significantly advance Alpha’s knowledge and understanding of our three best prospects on the Kerkasha exploration license. Kerkasha is proving to be very prospective and we are proud of the fact that over the past 2 years, as a junior exploration company we have discovered 3 different styles of mineralisation, orogenic gold, VMS and porphyry copper-gold on one license area,” said President and CEO Michael Hopley.

Alpha currently holds a 100 percent interest in the 771-square-kilometre Kerkasha Exploration License in southwest Eritrea, located 135 kilometres west-southwest of the capital city of Asmara.

The company has spent $13 million exploring the property since it was acquired in January 2018.

Alpha Exploration is unchanged, trading at $0.75 at 10:39 am ET.
