Just this week Xanadu announced that it intersected further copper in the second and third holes at the Zaraa porphyry discovery at its flagship Kharmagtai Copper-Gold Project.
One hole intersected 720 metres of visual copper mineralisation and the other is at 1,120 metres depth in high-density porphyry veining and strong chalcopyrite mineralisation.
Drilling is underway at Zaraa to further refine potentially shallower mineralisation for follow-up diamond drilling.
The Kharmagtai project hosts three porphyry deposits within a largely under-explored porphyry copper-gold district.
Zaraa, the focus of aggressive exploration, is showing strong early potential to add to the project’s JORC-compliant resource at the Stockwork Hill, White Hill and Copper Hill deposits.
1.5 million pound copper resource
At March 2015 the resource measured 203.4 million tonnes grading 0.34% copper and 0.33 g/t gold for 1.5 million pounds of copper and 2.2 million ounces of gold.
Kharmagtai is in the prolific South Gobi region that also hosts the Oyu Tolgoi Copper-Gold Project where open-pit mining is being carried out and the large underground mine is in development.
