Drilling was conducted on the Minto North II, Copper Keel South, Copper Keel West, and Copper Keel North areas.
Highlights included 38.9 metres grading 1.66% copper and 0.51grams per tonne gold, 15.75 metres grading 1.44% copper and 0.35 grams per tonne, and 21.6 metres grading 1.16% copper and 0.64 grams.
The interpretation of the results from the 2019-2020 drill programme supports plans to extend mine life and demonstrate the continuity of underground ore deposits. A preliminary economic assessment is now underway.
An exploration drill programme is planned for 2021, with the objective of further expanding resources and advancing numerous high-priority near-mine and regional targets in the Minto Copper Belt.
