ALEXANDER Mining Ltd, a Canadian company prospecting for gold in Yangoru, East Sepik, is expected to go full swing next year with drilling jobs starting on Jan 12.
Gabriel Wara, chairman of a locally-based landowner company, said Alexander Mining said had been very busy since the issuance of the exploration licence EL1857 by the government in 2011 to do sampling, trenching and moving onto aerial and radio metric IP survey.
“I am pleased to announce that from these activities, the company had received good results and would proceed to drilling in January.
“I am confident that Alexander Mining has the capability, expertise and the funds to deliver the mine,” Wara said.
Three locations in the EL1857 area on the ranges of East Yangoru to Maprik where drilling would be carried out were identified last week with officers from the Environment Department.
