Southern Palladium (ASX:SPD) debuted yesterday, acquiring a 70% interest in private company Miracle Upon Miracle Investments on listing – which holds the Bengwenyama Platinum Group Metals (PGM) project in South Africa.

It’s a project that currently has a JORC 2012 Inferred Resource of 18.80 million oz (3 PGE + gold) and CEO Johan Odendaal says that after the company’s second phase drilling, they could virtually double that resource.

 

American West Metals (ASX:AW1) unearthed its “best assays to date” from the ‘West Desert’ project, including a 105m-long interval of high-grade zinc and copper in hole WD22-03.

AW1’s No. 4 album from this drill includes such hits as:  16.47m @ 10.22% zinc, 0.26% copper, 0.17g/t gold, 16.24g/t silver, and 48.63g/t indium.

“We are thrilled to share the diamond drill results from WD22-03, as the program continues to define high-grade mineralisation at West Desert, substantially enhancing the resource potential,” AW1 managing director Dave O’Neill says.

“The intersections within WD22-03 display outstanding thicknesses and grade which continue to highlight the significant scale and quality of the West Desert Deposit.”
