Assays show more thick high‐grade mineralisation along strike and down dip from the existing Inferred Resource at the Zackly copper-gold deposit.
Highlights from the final batch of assays include 16.7 metres at 1.2% copper and 0.5 g/t gold from 261.4 metres.
This intersection was within the Main Skarn, which remains open at depth.
The current Zackly JORC resource stands at 41,000 tonnes of copper, 213,000 ounces of gold and 1.5 million ounces of silver from surface.
It occurs over a strike length of 1-kilometre and it is expected to increase with further drilling.
The thick, near‐surface nature of mineralisation in these latest holes allow rapid accumulation of additional resource tonnes and metal inventory with further drilling.
More drilling planned
Further drilling around these intersections is currently being planned based on the integration of the detailed aeromagnetic data with all drill results to date.
PolarX remains confident that this may lead to the definition of significant open‐pitable resources in the upcoming drilling campaign.
