  Southern Gold has commenced reverse circulation drilling on Golf Bore Resource and Mainwood Prospect, north of the Challenger gold mine, to advance its Challenger Area Gold Joint Venture with Dominion Mining.The decision by the Challenger Area Gold Joint Venture to target the Golf Bore Resource and Mainwood Prospect with a reverse circulation drilling program follows the JV’s successful first initiative to drill the Monsoon and Typhoon targets south of Challenger.Results of this first drilling program identified gold zones as potential footprints to high-grade gold shoots.That program was the first exploration drilling to be undertaken by the joint venture, comprising Southern Gold and Challenger mine owner, Dominion Mining, to prove up additional mineable gold zones around the mine.Southern Gold said it was confident the new Golf Bore and Mainwood program of approximately 30 reverse circulation holes, totalling 3600m, would confirm and extend the previously stated resource at Golf Bore, as prepared in accordance with the JORC code.Southern Gold Managing Director, Stephen Biggins said: “The new gold shoots being discovered at Challenger prove that close spaced drilling is required to define tightly folded, high-grade gold shoots within the broad gold zones we have already identified.”
