New Placer Dome is excited by the initial findings of its drill program at the Bolo gold-silver project in Nevada, US. It has so far completed nearly 40% of a 3,463m reverse circulation drill program and has sent these samples off for geochemical analysis to test for gold-silver mineralization.
However, initial analysis of these samples shows elevated arsenic values which is a potential indicator of the presence of gold-silver mineralization and an encouraging sign.

The program remains on budget and on schedule with an additional 2,100 meters to be completed over the coming weeks. The goal of the program is to find connecting mineralization between the South Mine Fault and Uncle Sam zones and to target new discoveries below the existing gold mineralization.
