Tempest Minerals Ltd (ASX:TEM) has identified a 4km base metal anomaly at the Remorse Target with geochemistry results from the company’s wholly-owned Meleya Project in Western Australia.
Soil geochemistry data recently received from surface sampling work undertaken across the eastern portion of the Meleya Project in Q4 2022 form the impressive four km strike polymetallic anomaly.
Results to date form a coherent copper-zinc zone with values of up to 635 ppm copper and 182ppm zinc having been recorded. This copper-zinc zonation is typical of VMS (volcanogenic massive sulphide) deposits. The recent acquisition of tenements may extend this anomaly further.
With very little or no prior exploration having been conducted in this area region – this once again highlights the impressive potential for multiple Gold, Base and Critical Metal mineralization systems within the Tempest portfolio.
The Meleya Project represents a previously unrecognized extension of the Yalgoo Greenstone belt identified through the innovative use of data analysis.
The project is part of the flagship wholly-owned Yalgoo regional holdings. In 2021, TEM identified further easterly extensions to the belt and in March 2023, TEM expanded this to further consolidate the company’s dominant position comprising more than 1,000sq. km of high potential exploration ground.
TEM has for some time considered the multitude of target zones at Meleya to represent some of the most exciting greenfields base and precious metal upside exploration opportunities in the industry today. This view was strongly supported in 2022 by the discovery of multiple mineralization occurrences within a regional geological context that hosts numerous world class gold, base metal and iron ore deposits. In late 2022, in parallel with multiple drilling programmes, TEM commenced the first ever systematic exploration in the eastern portion of the Meleya Project
– Furthers remaining assays pending
– Further sampling in new tenement areas to be completed
– Potential geophysical surveys
– Approvals and planning for drilling of the Remorse target in progress
– Further exploration work at other projects in progress with a regional mapping and surface geochemistry sampling programme
