Mobilising to site ahead of diamond drilling at Zambian copper-cobalt deposit

The company is currently mobilising to the Nyungu copper-cobalt deposit in north-western Zambia in preparation for a 2,800-metre drilling program, targeting extensions to known deposits and infill drilling for maiden resource estimation.

The drilling program is designed to expand the scale of the Nyungu Central and Nyungu South deposits and should finalise in about 12 weeks.

The program will also provide data for resource estimation and samples for metallurgical testing purposes.

The Nyungu copper-cobalt deposit is part of Argonaut’s 90% held Lumwana West project, located between Barrick Gold Corp’s Lumwana Mine and First Quantum Mineral’s Sentinel Mine in Zambia.

Yesterday, Argonaut announced it had temporarily suspended drilling operations at its Murdie project in South Australia due to bad weather conditions. As it waits for the rain to pass, the company will refine its drilling targets amid advanced discussions with a leading provider of mineral exploration artificial intelligence.
