The most significant work to have been completed in the Ruth Well project area was by Westfield NL between 1969 and 1975, Titan Resources NL (Titan) between 1989 and 2002 and Fox Resources NL (Fox) between 2004 and 2015. These companies carried out a series of open hole percussion, RAB, RC and diamond drilling programs.
Titan completed a TEMPEST AEM survey in 2000 and Fox completed an airborne VTEM HEM survey in 2006. These surveys provided coverage over the broader Ruth Well Project area, however given the high base frequency utilised (25 Hz) these surveys were unable to resolve highly conductive EM targets amongst broader, more extensive stratigraphic/formational conductive units. Fox completed a ground-based SQUID EM survey in 2007.
Previous drilling in and around the Ruth Well project area comprised 426 drill holes including open hole percussion, RAB, RC and diamond drilling for a total of approximately 18,827 metres. Artemis Resources (ASX:ARV) drilled another 37 RC drill holes and one diamond drill hole for an additional 2,923 metres in 2018.
