Copper-gold assays a confidence boost for CuFe ahead of Orlando drill core test work
Link copied to
Assay results from CuFe’s Orlando deposit at the Tennant Creek project in the NT have returned remnant high grade gold and copper mineralisation around the pit.
Notable intersections include:
“We see an opportunity at Orlando to cut back the existing open pit to access the remaining ore and this drilling provides valuable data to support that,” CuFe (ASX:CUF) executive director Mark Hancock says.
The main aim of the drilling was to confirm the existence of high-grade ore, generating diamond core for metallurgical testwork and obtaining water data for the environmental approval process – which Hancock says the company has achieved.
The next step is to use the drill core to follow up encouraging recovery results achieved in previous metallurgical test work announced last month.
“We will continue to progress activity on all these streams as well as looking into the remaining exploration potential at areas such as Gecko, Goanna and Monitor, all of which have shown potential to host high-grade copper mineralisation in previous drilling,” he said.
