Arrow Minerals Ltd (ASX:AMD) has commenced drilling at the Helsinki prospect within its 100% owned Strickland Gold Project in the Yilgarn Craton of Western Australia.

The 3,000-metre aircore drilling program will test several coincident gold-in-soil, aeromagnetic and gravity anomalies.

Drilling is expected to be completed within two weeks, with assay results expected by the end of May.

Arrow carried out detailed pre-drilling exploration Strickland in 2018 including soil sampling, magnetic surveys, gravity surveys and mapping.

A strategic review of this data has highlighted the Helsinki prospect as the highest priority target yet to be drilled.

Specifically, the gravity survey has identified a 5 kilometre-long intrusion, with a large, coherent gold-in-soil anomaly along the intrusion boundaries.

As per below, the aircore drilling program will consist of seven regional traverses for 50-60 holes.

The program is designed to identify the position of potentially mineralised structures for follow up drill testing in the June quarter of 2019.
