Australia is banning international flights
Chase Mining Corporation Ltd (ASX:CML) has advised that, as a result of all international flights into and out of Australia being banned from 30 March 2020, the company will postpone the Alotta and Lorraine Mine Drilling Program at the Lorraine Nickel Mine in Quebec, Canada.
The drilling was planned to start the week of 18 May 2020 and is now postponed until further notice.
The company had planned a deep diamond drilling program targeting gold, silver and copper within the old Lorraine Nickel Mine.
Drilling at the Alotta Project, was expected to commence in the week of 18 May 2020 with the plan to drill 4-5 holes around targets known to host nickel-copper-PGE massive sulphide zones.
Following Alotta drilling, the company intended to drill at Lorraine where the identification of drilling targets was still underway.
