Aton Resources has signed a contract with Energold Drilling to carry out a minimum of 4,250 meters of diamond drilling at its Abu Marawat Concession in September, according to a press release.

The drilling program will be focused on the Rodruin and Hamama projects, starting with drilling Rodruin with 3,350 meters, and following up on the  2018 reverse circulation percussion drill program. The company plans to test the high-grade veins sampled at the surface on the North Ridge for the first time. 

As for the Hamama drilling program, it will consist of 900 meters of drilling to delineate additional oxide and transitional resources at the Hamama east and central areas, which have not been effectively drill-tested to date. The potential for relatively high-grade oxide mineralization has been indicated by channel sampling of surface trenches.
