Two reverse circulation (RC) holes for 740 metres were drilled to test extensions to known mineralisation.
Samples have now been processed and dispatched to the lab for follow-up analysis with results likely available in the next few weeks.
Hardey’s director Robert McCauley said: “It is pleasing to have concluded this latest drilling round at our core copper project.
“The board looks forward to reviewing the assay results as this will determine the next phase of the drilling program at the Burraga project.
“Further, our geology teams are ramping up development work on the vanadium projects, given favourable global demand-supply dynamics have propelled the V2O5 price to 5-year highs.”
Further drilling likely
Once the assay results have been reviewed, further drilling is likely to be proposed to test potential extensions to the known ore body to the east.
In addition, Hardey intends to provide updated progress reports on its Nelly Vanadium Mine and six vanadium assets in the Northern Territory and Queensland.
Hardey aims to capitalise on Argentina’s comparatively favourable mining laws to expedite re-opening the Nelly Vanadium Mine.
