At its joint project with mining giant Rio Tinto, Antipa Minerals has intersected further gold, copper and silver mineralisation following a diamond drilling campaign.
Highlights from the recent drilling program include 14.45 grams per tonne of gold, 0.64 per cent copper and 4.69 grams per tonne of silver.
Final results from this year’s exploration efforts at Citadel are expected by the end of next month.
In 2015, the two companies entered the farm-in joint venture for the Citadel project in Western Australia. It gives Rio the opportunity to invest $60 million in the project and assume a 75 per cent interest.
This year, Rio allocated $3.4 million in funding to further exploration at the project. Exploration included 6842 metres of reverse circulation and diamond-core drilling.
A resource estimate of Citadel forecast it to hold 1.6 million ounces of gold and 127,300 tonnes of copper across the Calibre and Magnum deposits.
Antipa’s share price is down 14.29 per cent at today’s market close, currently trading for 1.2 cents each.
