  • Company shares are up 12.4 per cent and trading at 10 cents

Inca Minerals (ICG) has received initial results from a 10-hole drilling program in the East Tennant region of the Northern Territory.

Geoscience Australia conducted the drilling program as part of the National Drilling Initiative. In the Northern Territory, drilling is aimed at evaluating the potential for large mineralised zones, such as iron ore copper-gold (IOCG) systems, in the East Tennant region.

Pleasingly, two of the drill holes intersected IOCG-style sulphide mineralisation which confirms the potential for large-scale mineral discoveries.

These holes are located on government-retained areas that are completely enclosed within Inca’s Frewena Far East Project. This project forms part of Inca’s broader Frewena Project which is prospective for tier-1 IOCG and orogenic gold mineralisation.

The holes were drilled to 351.8-metre and 416.3-metre depths, and one of them is located on Inca’s Mount Lamb target which is near to previously reported iron-rich breccias.

Mount Lamb is located above an 18-kilometre long magnetic anomaly that trends northeast-southwest through Frewena Far East and coincides with an important regional scale fault.

Inca will now interpret the results from the two holes as part of a comprehensive
Frewena Project review currently being undertaken. The review is aimed at utilising geophysical data from the East tennant region.

Company shares are up 12.4 per cent and trading at 10 cents at 11:21 am AEDT.

ICG by the numbers
