PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA – White Cliff Minerals Limited (ASX: WCN) (“White Cliff” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce that the 2017 field season drill program has commenced at its 90%-owned Aucu Gold deposit in north-west Kyrgyz Republic.

Phase one drilling focusing on the deposit’s high grade Quartz Zone consists of 15 holes (1200 metres) of RC drilling. The drilling is targeting the Quartz Zone structure along strike from previous drilling which defined an inferred resource of 244,000 tonnes at 9.5 g/t containing 75,000 ounces. Once the strike extent of the Quartz Zone has been defined the Company will drill a series of deeper holes to test the mineralisation at depth.

The drill rig has completed ERC17-001, a 60-metre deep hole located 50 metres along strike from last year’s drilling (figure 1) and has moved to the second hole ERC17-002, a 90-metre hole designed to test the mineralised zone underneath ERC17-001.
