- ECR Minerals said it had commenced gold exploration activities at the Timor project in Australia's Victoria state.

Timor was one of five projects held by ECR in the Victorian Goldfields region.

It had been the subject of a review by the ECR technical team to assess gold prospectivity and to determine a forward exploration approach.

'I am extremely pleased to announce that our review of the Timor gold project has now been completed, highlighting multiple gold exploration targets within the project area,' said chief executive Craig Brown.

'Most of the targets identified to date relate to previously mined areas within the Project and our work will be focused on the areas occupied by the more historically successful gold producing operations.'
