Arc Minerals Ltd (LON:ARCM) has kicked off its exploration programme at the Zamsort project in north-western Zambia.
Infill soil sampling has commenced over the new target areas, and 1,200 samples have already been grabbed.
The drilling of new targets will commence as soon as weather conditions allow, Arc told shareholders.
Arc said the target discovery areas continue to exceed expectations.
"I am very pleased to have completed the follow-up work on the new anomalies and to have commenced the soil sampling programme early having been able to access Cheyeza West during intermittent dry periods. As soon as weather conditions allow we shall be deploying rigs to Cheyeza West in the first instance and start our drilling programme,” revealed Nick von Schirnding, the executive chairman of Arc Minerals.
“The Cheyeza West and Lumbeta anomalies … are around 10 order of magnitudes larger than anything previously looked at in the Zamsort project area - and is a potential game-changer for Arc Minerals," he added.
