Tempus Resources Ltd (ASX:TMR) (CVE:TMRR) (OTCMKTS:TMRFF) (FRA:4W0) has kickstarted a drilling campaign at its Elizabeth Gold Project in southern British Columbia, Canada. The program officially began on June 5, when a diamond drill rig started hole EZ-21-01 at the Elizabeth section of the Blackdome-Elizabeth gold asset. Ultimately, Tempus’ latest exploration campaign aims to continue and extend results from a drilling program conducted late last year, when the company covered more than 2 kilometres of ground and intersected up to 1.5 metres at 186 g/t from 118 metres. As it continues gold exploration at Elizabeth, the explorer intends to conduct 7,500 metres of down-plunge and along-strike diamond drilling in 2021. All eyes on SW Vein Speaking to the 2021 drill program’s commencement, Tempus president & CEO Jason Bahnsen said the project’s South West (SW) vein would continue to be the focus of the company’s exploration efforts. “The SW vein remains considerably under-explored at depth and along strike and we are very excited to start seeing more high-grade core from this drilling campaign”. Promisingly, historical drilling indicates the SW vein extends a further 400 metres along strike to the northeast, making it a high-priority target in this year’s campaign.

Tailing the 2020 campaign Essentially, fresh exploration activity at Elizabeth will follow up on findings from an 11-hole program conducted in November 2020. In February this year, Tempus unveiled a series of high-grade gold intersections from the SW vein, cementing the target’s prospectivity for further exploration. Highlights from the 2020 campaign include: 5 metres at 61.3 g/t gold from 116.5 metres, including 1.5 metres at 186 g/t from 118 metres in hole EZ20-06 and; 3.2 metres at 28.1 g/t from 184 metres, including 0.5 metres at 178 g/t in hole EZ20-10 Tempus will continue drilling at Elizabeth over the course of this year.
