THE DRILL SERGEANT: Cyprium Metals (ASX: CYM) reported assay results from an 18-hole RC drilling program completed at the company’s Nifty copper mine in the north-eastern Pilbara region of Western Australia.
Cyprium Metals carried out the Nifty East extensional drilling program targeting areas of potential oxide/transitional mineralisation extending east of the Nifty open pit.
Widths of copper mineralisation intersected, include:
21m at 0.45 per cent copper from 122m, including 5m at 1.28 per cent copper from 124m;
3m at 0.62 per cent copper from 157m, including 1m at 1.22 per cent copper from 158m and 5m at 0.39 per cent copper from 166m;
10m at 0.37 per cent copper from 176m; and
13m at 0.55 per cent copper from 77m, including 2m at 2.06 per cent copper from 80m.
“The first phase of drilling at Nifty East has firmed up our understanding of the copper mineralisation extending from the former Nifty open pit and clearly demonstrates excellent potential to grow the existing resource further east,” Cyprium Metals executive director Barry Cahill said n the company’s ASX announcement.
“Follow-up drilling is currently being planned and we look forward to updating the market on the results from the extensional drilling to the west of the Nifty pit.”
