Best Intersections To Date From Antler Copper Project
New World Resources Limited (ASX: NWC) has received significant new high-grade assay results from four recently completed drill-holes at the Antler Copper Project in Arizona, USA.
Recently received results include those from one of the deepest holes drilled to date in the Main Shoot – ANTDD202144 – which has delivered one of the best intersections returned from the Project to date at 25.4m @ 3.13% Cu, 8.91% Zn, 0.27% Pb, 19.6 g/t Ag and 0.26 g/t Au from 559.2m (25.4m @ 5.2% Cu equivalent)
The mineralisation intersected in ANTDD202144 is approximately 550m down-plunge from the mineralisation that outcrops at surface at the Antler Deposit, and approximately 400m down-plunge from the historical stopes. It confirms that substantial thick high-grade mineralisation remains unmined at the Antler Project.
Also, recent drilling has confirmed an extension of the thick high-grade mineralisation at the northern end of the Antler Deposit, with assay results from ANTDD202032 including 6.8m @ 4.08% Cu, 3.77% Zn, 0.37% Pb, 19.1 g/t Ag and 0.34 g/t Au from 271.7m (6.8m @ 4.8% Cu equivalent)
This mineralisation is located immediately along strike from an area of mineralisation that was drilled in detail from underground (but remains unmined) in 1969 and 1970.
Managing Director, Mike Haynes, said these intersections provide further evidence that there is considerable potential to discover additional mineralisation at the Antler Project.
“ANTDD202144 is one of the best holes we have drilled to date at Antler in value terms. Importantly, it’s also one of the deepest holes we have drilled – and continues to demonstrate improving grade and particularly thickness of the mineralisation as we drill deeper below the historic workings,” Mr Haynes said.
“We are also continuing to discover additional thick, high-grade mineralisation with exploratory drilling along strike from the Main Shoot, which continues to expand and add confidence to the resource base.
“With drilling consistently delivering substantial thicknesses of very high-grade mineralisation at Antler, the project is continuing to emerge as one of the highest-grade undeveloped copper deposits globally and a very real near-term development proposition.”
Assay results for ANTDD202138 and ANTDD202139 have also been returned. Both holes intersected multiple intervals of high-grade mineralisation, albeit these intervals are thinner than those in many surrounding holes. However, results from these drill holes continue to help New World understand the variability of mineralisation at the Antler Project, and, importantly, help
