Assay results from four samples from the Pulding copper and molybdenum prospect showed high potential.
Results included 2.39% copper and 223 parts per million (ppm) Mo; 1.98% Cu and 503 ppm Mo; 1.27% Cu and 183 ppm Mo; and 1.33% Cu and 440 ppm Mo.
Geological consultant Stan Yeaman said these results are from rock-chip character samples, which are not representative linear channel samples, but were taken to characterise the silicate alteration with the chalcopyrite mineralisation over a significant area.
Four samples from the Wara Creek iron ore prospect also assayed greater than 50% iron. These samples are of interest for high grade, low impurity iron ore, the source of which requires additional exploration ahead of drilling.
The four samples greater than 50% Fe will be re-assayed to more accurately determine their iron and silica contents.
