Recent work by Kennecott on Azulitas has included reconnaissance soil sampling and mapping, limited bulldozer costean work, airborne magnetics and scout diamond drilling.
A further 255 longitudinal strike length trench samples and 481 costean samples (across the vein) pending assay and compilation along with duplicate samples.

Cyprus completed a program of soil, rockchip and costean sampling, including ground magnetics, together with drilling seven RC and diamond holes, which focused on a zone of 0.
In 2006, Matrix Metals Limited entered into a JV with Goldstar Resources and, in 2007, re-sampled the highly anomalous costean with results confirming Cyprus's tenor of anomalism, but no drilling was carried out.

QMC's RC drill program will outline the continuity of mineralisation along strike to the south of the Cyprus fence of drill holes; test the extent of mineralisation at depth beneath the highly anomalous Costean #5; and establish whether there is a relatively shallow or steep dip to the mineralisation intersected in the Cyprus drill holes.
Costean trenching has been completed at Vertigo for bulk metallurgical sample and drilling activities will commence in August.
The area was mined for gold in the 1930s and a 60 metre costean (trench) and a shaft to 5 metres depth remain.
Highlights:- WMC Costean ZoneResource upgrade drilling in the WMC Costean Area to the east of Floater Road intersected some excellent near surface mineralisation.
The exploration plans also contain plans to excavate two costeans for bulk sampling and metallurgical samples from the shallowest part of the prospect.
