According to a press release, the program is intended to drill 12 holes with maximum drilling depths of 450 feet for each hole. In total, the program has an estimated 5,400 feet of drilling.

Once the drilling program is completed, the company will have an inaugural 43-101 report commissioned for the project.

Moving into 2024, Enertopia said it might potentially look at having a feasibility study completed for the project.
