    Admiralty Resources (ASX:ADY) has advanced its pre-feasibility and scoping study at Mariposa and Soberana respectively with results expected in the next quarter.

    The scoping study of Soberana also included 240 tonnes live test and 600 metres of RC drilling

    Its drilling activity is set to receive boost with an exploration budget of $1.3 million allocated for the December quarter compared with a spend of $920000 the previous quarter.

    The company has $4.63 million cash on hand.
