THE DRILL SERGEANT: Antipa Minerals (ASX: AZY) has intersected multiple zones of copper-gold and zinc mineralisation at the company’s 100 per cent-owned ground in the Paterson Province of Western Australia.
Antipa Minerals declared its recent greenfield exploration drilling activities have continued to deliver with the discovery of multiple new copper‐gold and zinc mineral systems.
The company said this had confirmed the highly prospective nature of the tenure adding that the drilling has confirmed the presence of a new mineralisation trend beneath shallow cover within the El Paso Structural Corridor which extends for approximately 60 kilometres, which it expects will lead to the identification of additional priority exploration targets.
Drilling has identified a new mineralised trend within the El Paso Structural Corridor.
The Serrano and Poblano magnetic targets and Reaper AEM target each returned multiple intervals, including:
4 metres at 8.1 grams per tonne gold, 0.23 per cent copper, 0.91g/t silver and 673ppm bismuth from 194m down hole, including 1m at 27.4g/t gold, 0.51 per cent copper, 2.35g/t silver and 2,200ppm bismuth; and
168m at 0.03g/t gold, 470ppm copper and 318ppm zinc from 32m down hole, including 35m at 0.07g/t gold and 0.1 per cent copper from 45m down hole, also including 12m at 0.15g/t gold and 0.09 per cent copper.
Antipa has its Phase 2 exploration program underway that includes follow up RC drill testing of further high priority Phase 1 AEM targets, RC drill testing of high-grade gold-copper magnetic targets, and a 600 square kilometre AEM survey and induced polarisation survey to progress regional exploration.
