The drilling programme follows successful results from trenching conducted at the end of 2015, which returned positive results for Gold.
Four short diamond drill holes will target the positive trenching results at depth and along strike to assess vein continuity and grade.
John Teeling, Chairman, commented "The drilling, which starts today in Donegal is the next step on a long road toward a potential commercial gold discovery. The journey can stop at any time. These four holes are to indicate whether the gold bearing rock found in trenching in late 2015 continues at depth and horizontally."
