This hole was drilled as an infill hole together with several others to test the high grade pyritic unit against the Fish River Fault (FRF) within the current Vardy resource.
Aeon intersected 16 metres at 2.10% copper, 0.11% cobalt, 1.31% lead, 0.86% zinc and 46.65 g/t silver from 120 metres including high-grade copper of 5 metres at 5.12% copper.
The increasing confidence of the geological model together with the large and robust database is now enabling the geological team to better target holes where mineralisation juxtaposes the FRF.
Since drilling commenced in early May, 18 diamond drill holes have been completed for a total of 2,159 metres.
To date 10 reverse circulation holes have also been drilled for 1,058 metres.
The focus of the drilling has now turned to testing other potentially high-grade mineral zones to the west of Vardy.
Aeon recently completed a preliminary technical and economic study on the potential viability of the Vardy Zone within the global Walford Creek Resource.
The Vardy Zone is expected to produce 38,158 tonnes copper, 28,848 tonnes zinc and 3,196 tonnes of cobalt over a six-year mine life, based on a resource of 3.6-million tonnes grading 1.15% copper, 1.06% zinc and 0.18% cobalt.
