Avira Resources Ltd (ASX:AVW) is scheduled to kick off exploration this month for copper-nickel-cobalt and gold at its Puolalaki Project in Sweden.
This campaign comprises exploration stages one and two consisting of airborne magnetic, fixed-loop EM surveys and diamond core drilling.
The work plan covers estimated exploration work until the end of the March quarter of next year.
Looking ahead, Avira’s initial diamond drilling is projected to take about 8-12 weeks within this timeframe.
Geophysical measurements including an airborne UAV magnetic survey and a ground-based fixed loop EM survey both on the ground surface and in drill holes are planned to kick off during the current northern hemisphere winter.
The UAV magnetic survey will include about 175-275 line kilometres with survey lines planned at 25 metre-40 metre spacings.
It is estimated that the work will be completed within a one-week period and is dependent on weather conditions.
