This magnetic horizon extends three kilometres to the northwest of the main Copper Blow prospect and a further three kilometres to the west.
The survey results indicate that the Copper Blow mineralisation has a distinctive geophysical signature consisting of coincident magnetic, gravity and moving loop electromagnetic anomalies.
Interestingly, the sulphide mineralisation encountered in past drilling (chalcopyrite, pyrite and pyrrhotite) are interpreted to be the source of the conductor recognised in the survey.
To the northeast of Copper Blow is a discrete northeast-trending gravity ridge between 100 and 150 metres wide which is strongly coincident with the linear magnetic anomaly.
Critically, two distinctive coincident gravity-magnetic anomalies define targets for Silver City’s follow up drill testing.
A fixed loop electromagnetic survey will be conducted in order to clarify the likely source of the conductor recognised in the survey prior to possible drill testing.
Meanwhile, downhole electromagnetic surveys are ongoing at Copper Blow to determine the presence of off-hole conductors indicative of copper mineralisation.
Last week, the company received more high-grade copper, gold and cobalt assay results from its recent drilling program at the Copper Blow Project.
Silver City anticipates embarking on a significant exploration program which will involve follow-up drilling and resource definition at Copper Blow as well as exploration at new targets.
