Drilling logs confirmed that 7 out of 8.5 drill-holes intersected sulphide mineralisation.
The best intersection was 30 metres thick and came from an untested area between two known JORC modelled lodes.
Results backup promising data from mid-January
The company has intersected highly mineralised sulphides ranging from disseminated and breccia sulphides on the outer zones.
These trended to semi-massive/massive veins within the core of the shear zone.
The results come on the back of promising drill sections identified in mid-January.
Armstrong buoyed by intersection of highly mineralised zones
The drilling program has also confirmed the veracity of the current JORC model and clearly implies there is significant potential resource size upside.
Alan Armstrong, executive director, said: “The board is highly encouraged by the progress of the drilling campaign to date, particularly the news that highly mineralised sulphide zones have been intersected.
"Our objective is to re-open Cangai Copper Mine and so far the evidence suggests we are on track to achieve this goal.”
Objectives for balance of drilling program
After reviewing the results from recent drilling, the company aims to develop a large bulk open pit resource at Cangai.
The focus will be on gathering further evidence over the balance of the drilling campaign to increase the current JORC compliant copper-zinc-gold-silver resource.
