Modern systematic exploration by the Company has located a porphyry copper target in the adjacent andesitic volcanic rocks underlying the Hercules Rhyolite to the east. Shallow level porphyry style alteration has been mapped within a new copper-in-soil anomaly extending over 2 kilometers from the historically defined silver mineralization.
The disseminated silver-lead-zinc mineralization has been de-risked by over 28,000 meters of drilling across 3.5 kilometres of strike. Historical operators were focused on developing a shallow high-grade open pit resource with short vertical drill holes, preventing a full understanding of structural controls. The Company has aggressive plans to drill over 5.5 kilometers of strike, verify the historical drilling and its suitability towards a maiden resource estimate, as well as test the new 2 kilometer long copper porphyry target discovered in 2021/2022.
