Hammer finds second high grade copper zone in Qld

Hammer Metals is on a roll in QLD after the small cap explorer identified a second high grade copper zone with significant gold values at its new Judith prospect, part of the company’s emerging Perentie project, near Mount Isa in Queensland. Surface rock chip assay results up went to 25% copper and 7.23g/t gold at Judith and were located only 800m north of the Paddy B prospect.

Chilean silver credits on the cards for Emu

ASX junior explorer Emu NL is planning to search for silver mineralisation at the Vidalita prospect in northern Chile after drilling indicated it is similar to other deposits in the Maricunga Belt that have large gold resources and significant silver credits. Follow-up drilling will also target the large zones of low grade base metal mineralisation – particularly zinc – that was outlined in the previous campaign.

Artemis completes Munni Munni JV and targets gold

Artemis Resources has completed its 70% earn-in on the Munni Munni JV tenements, located 40km south of Karratha in the Pilbara region of W.A. Whilst the area contains Australia’s largest palladium occurrence, the JV partners are initially targeting the under-explored gold potential of the area. A geological review by Artemis has identified the prospectivity for structurally-hosted, hydrothermal and/or detrital-conglomerate gold mineralisation within the JV tenements.
