- Landore Resources has started a drilling and geophysics campaign on the Junior Lake nickel-copper-PGE property in Ontario, Canada.

Landore has started the programme to follow up on the recommendations from the independent geophysicist's review, published 19 September, and the independent engineers mineral potential report, published 13 October. The programme consists of:

· A 2,500 metre, nine-hole diamond NQ, drilling programme on the B4-7 deposit and along the trend to the west and to the east to test targets identified in the above reports. All three drill-holes completed to date have successfully intersected mineralisation. Assay results are awaited and will be reported as received.

· In conjunction with the drilling, Abitibi Geophysics of Thunder Bay, Ontario, has been engaged to complete Bore-hole Time-Domain Electro-Magnetic (BHEM) surveys on new and existing drill-holes to determine the three dimensional extension of mineralisation and to locate possible outlying anomalies. Landore's independent geophysicist, Alan King from Sudbury, Ontario, will be receiving and interpreting the data generated.

Landore has also engaged WSP Canada Inc. from Sudbury, Ontario to complete a 'geotechnical study and report to pre-feasibility standard pit design parameters' on the proposed B4-7 open pit located between local grid lines 25m West and 525m East on the B4-7 NI 43-101 compliant resource. WSP's geotechnical engineer has completed a site visit to carry out a project review, geotechnical logging and to take core samples for materials testing. The final report is scheduled for completion in Q1 2016 after which the results will be used to design the B4-7 open pit.
