Meadow Bay received its permit to resume drilling and the end of October and is using a drilling programme carried out in 2011 as a guide.
That drilling discovered a zone of precious metal mineralisation northwest of the historic Atlanta pit that was both thicker and higher in grade than the average resource at Atlanta.
The current drilling program will focus on both in-fill drilling for the widely-spaced 2011 holes, as well as step-out drilling to the north.
Alex Khutorsky, chief executive said: " This is the next step toward furthering our understanding of what we have and, perhaps, making some new discoveries along the way."
