Peel Mining (ASX:PEX) has received drill results extending the high-grade zinc-lead-silver Southern Nights discovery within its 100%-owned Wagga Tank project near Cobar, New South Wales.

New assays feature 22 metres at 8.48% zinc, 3.06% lead, 115 g/t silver, 0.24 g/t gold from 161 metres.

Follow-up drilling has now extended the strike of significant zinc mineralisation at the Southern Nights discovery to 700 metres in length with mineralisation open in all directions.

Drilling is continuing with expansion and acceleration of field activities underway.

Up to 60 additional reverse circulation and diamond drill holes are planned over the coming months.

22 reverse circulation drill holes for 4,972 metres have been completed to date at the Southern Nights prospect.

Southern Nights discovery

The Southern Nights prospect is located ~1 kilometre south of the high-grade zinc-lead-silver-gold-copper Wagga Tank deposit.

Follow-up drilling undertaken over the past month has primarily tested the strike potential of this newly-recognised mineralisation

Peel recently raised $6 million through the issue of 15 million shares at $0.40 as part of an oversubscribed placement to fund drilling.
