After finishing a 16,000-metre winter drill program in April, Mawson Resources is getting ready for a 12-month exploration program at its flagship Rompas gold property and Rajapalot gold-cobalt property, just south of the Arctic Circle in Finland’s Lapland.

The program is set to begin in June with base-of-till, regional drilling. It will then break into a mid-year drill program and a year-end drill program. Mawson will target different areas seasonally based on permitting restrictions. The only month it can’t get much work done is May, when melting snow creates poor conditions.

The company has 13 exploration permits in Finland, each with its own limitations. Rajapalot, for example, is part of a biodiversity program that limits drilling to the winter, unless it’s hand portable.

As a result, upcoming exploration at Raja, a target on Rajapalot, will not include drilling, but a ground-based, electromagnetic survey instead. The company has drilled the prospect as far as 400 metres downhole, but says it’s visible down to 900 metres on an airborne geophysics survey.
