Norfolk Metals has completed a surface geochemical sampling program at its Roger River copper-gold project in Tasmania, with 98 samples sent for laboratory analysis.

The 261km2 Roger River project covers over 30km strike of the highly prospective Roger River Fault zone, which hosts several gold and copper occurrences as well as alteration, silicification and diatreme breccias typical of epithermal precious metal deposits.

The geochemical samples were taken over the Anomaly 2 (A2) area to provide a lateral vector for the copper mineralisation intersected in the first diamond drill hole 22RRD001 late last year.

Results are expected to be received mid Q3 2023 which Norfolk Metals (ASX:NFL) expects will assist in determining the next phase of drilling over the A2 prospect.

Testing historical samples for copper

In addition, historical geochemical samples that were not sampled for copper over the White Water and A2 prospects will be re-submitted for copper analysis in the next quarter.

This will provide a broader data set and possibly provide a better understanding of the orientation of the copper mineralisation over the two prospects.

“It is also important to note that there are coincident gold and arsenic soil anomalies within the White Water prospect that remain untested and will also be considered in the next phase of drilling,” the company said.
