Copper sulphides intersected
Emmerson recently intersected visible copper sulphides in all holes during the first stage of diamond drilling at Kiola project within the prolific Lachlan Fold Belt of NSW.
Four holes for 1,130 metres have just been completed at Kiola, which is one of Emmerson's five projects in NSW.
Emmerson managing director Rob Bills said: “The first phase of drilling at Kiola has been highly successful in providing new insights into the subsurface geology of the 15 square kilometres Kiola Geochemical Zone (KGZ).”
Assay results are expected in the second half of July which will inform an updated geological model and further refine the next drill campaign in the second half of 2020.
