Xemplar Energy continues to carry out a balanced exploration drill program combining definition and development drilling with the primary objective of defining a resource for its Warmbad project. The Company's strategy entails exploration drilling to identify additional zones of mineralization, drilling to extend the size of the eight zones of mineralization that has been discovered at Aluriesfontein and Big Yellow, and definition drilling to define a resource at one or more of the zones of mineralization the Company has identified.
