The assay results provide confirmation of the historical work and also confirms the significant potential of the Milford Project as a high-grade zinc, lead and copper target.
Tao identified mineralisation across all three of the prospects contained within the broader Milford Project. Peak values for zinc were recorded above the cut-off sampling grade of 30.0% zinc.
Interestingly, a number of assays returned significant values of copper, ranging as high as 8.52% copper, which was not identified during the 2013 Firestrike Limited exploration program.
Outcropping and surface mineralisation found at Milford Project
TAO managing director Patrick Glovac said: “The results are extremely exciting for shareholders, confirming high-grade mineralisation is present, most importantly, at surface and at all three prospect areas within the broader Milford Project.”
Phase I exploration in full swing
The company is continuing with its phase I exploration program with further sampling, trenching and structural mapping to commence in the coming weeks.
The program has also been expanded to incorporate the recently announced additional 100 mining claims to the south west of the original Milford Project.
In addition, Tao is working with Harrison Land Services LLC to expedite the permitting process in an effort to be able to move into the phase II exploration, which will include a maiden drilling program.
