At its Spruce East Project, Kinross Gold USA, Inc, a subsidiary of Kinross Gold Corp (NYSE:KGC; TSX:K) has informed the company that it will be back for another round of drilling.

This includes a second year minimum expenditure of US$200,000 to maintain the option.

Kinross Gold however has decided not to proceed with its earn-in on the Buffalo Canyon project, despite the 2017 drilling programme encountering long runs of low-grade gold mineralisation, including the highest single assay received to date of 5.34 g/t Au.

The project is now being actively marketed to attract a new venture partner, the company said.

Similarly, Kinross Gold has also opted not to proceed with the Diamond Point project and Renaissance Gold is currently assessing the remaining target potential.

At its three projects – Pluto, South Roberts and Ecru – its partner, S2 Resources Ltd (ASX:S2R)  has recently finished geophysical and geochemical surveys at South Roberts and plans additional geophysical surveys at Ecru.

S2 plans to drill both projects in the spring, the company added.

Ramelius Resources Ltd (ASX:RMS), which completed a Phase 1 drill program at the Jupiter project, is evaluating the results and plans a follow-up drilling in the summer.
