The month that's been
The ASX has received a multitude of news from Greenvale this year, but only 2 pieces of price sensitive news in the last 30 days.
The first was released on 7 June, when the miner announced it was ready to begin a "multi-pronged, high-impact" exploration program at its Georgina Basin IOCG Project in the Northern Territory.
Greenvale also announced its wholly-owned subsidiary, Knox Resources Pty Ltd, had successfully received funding from the NT Government in the form of 2 grants from the Resourcing the Territory initiative.
The grants saw the state government contribute just over $26,000 – 50% of the total cost – towards the on-ground gravity program at the Georgina Basin Project. The program's results are due to be released in mid-July.
The next time market heard from Greendale was on Monday when the company announced the successful completion of its core drill program at the Alpha Torbanite Project in central Queensland. The drill program has paved the way for its definitive feasibility study (DFS).
Greenvale expects to deliver the Alpha Torbanite Project's DFS later this year.
