Battery Minerals (BAT) has begun aircore drilling at its fully-owned Stavely-Stawell Project in Victoria.

The 721-square kilometre Stavely-Stawell Project hosts the historical Moyston gold mine which produced around 75,000 ounces at 22g/t gold.

It is considered highly prospective for shear zone-hosted orogenic gold deposits and volcanic-hosted base metals mineralisation.
