Askari Metals (AS2) has begun a detailed mapping and sampling program at the Horry Copper-Gold Project in Western Australia.

The Horry Project lies in the Kimberly mobile belt of Western Australia, roughly 90 kilometres southwest of Halls Creek.

It is situated within the structurally complex Halls Creek mobile zone which has produced material grading up to 2.86 ounces of gold per tonne.

The mapping and sampling will be undertaken by professional mapping geologist John Crossing.

Furthermore, Newexco Exploration has also been engaged to collect, review and report on all historical geophysical exploration undertaken at the project.

Vice President – Exploration and Geology Johan Lambrechts is excited to begin exploration the underexplored project.

“We are excited to have commented on ground field activities at the highly prospective Horry Copper Project,” Mr Lambrechts commented.

“The tenement has received minimal exploration work in the past, despite the presence of an historic gold mine and a number of historical samples including two results greater than an ounce gold as well as two per cent and 2.5 per cent copper, which certainly warrant further exploration and follow-up.”

Once completed, the information gathered from the mapping and sampling will be combined to determine a preferred exploration strategy.

Further updates will be made as the program progresses.

Askari has ended the day 4.65 per cent in the green with shares trading at 22.5 cents in a $9.14 million market cap.
