Hammer Metals Reports More Promising Results from Perentie

The company said it was excited with this find which has potential for a significant new copper discovery within its existing portfolio.

Hammer Metals (ASX:HMX) has reported a second zone of high grade copper-gold with results up to 25 percent copper at its Perentie project near Mt Isa in Queensland.

As highlighted in the press release:

  • Judith prospect, the second of the new zones discovered at Perentie has returned rock chip values up to 25 percent copper and 7.23 grams per tonne (g/t) of gold.
  • Judith is located 800 m north of the Paddy B prospect from where high-grade copper-gold results were reported last week.
  • Disseminated mineralization occurring within quartz-carbonite veined and strongly ‘red rock’ altered granite up to 30 min thickness occurs over a 450 m strike length. This zone is shaping up as a high priority drill target.
  • Six previously undiscovered copper-gold prospects have now been sampled at Perentie.
  • Multiple other targets identified with a similar geophysical signature in the Perentie area. Ground investigation of these targets continues.
  • Further assay results from the Susan prospect and anomaly 5 are expected within the next week.
  • Hammer is extremely excited with this find which has potential for a significant new copper discovery within Hammer’s existing portfolio.

Graphite Metallurgical Test Work Update

Highlights:

  • Bulk sample of Springdale graphite concentrate estimated to be completed in Q2 2021.
  • Concentrate material will then be sent to Germany to test its amenability for the production of battery anode material suitable for use in EVs.
  • Final test results expected in Q3 2021.

Comet Resources Ltd (ASX:CRL) is pleased provide an update on ongoing test work on natural flake graphite from its Springdale Graphite Project (Springdale) located in Western Australia. Both excellent grade and recoveries were achieved on initial tests, leading to commencement of work to produce a bulk sample for further testing. Importantly, the graphite concentrates previously produced demonstrated a unique and potentially very valuable characteristic in its small size distribution, with two-thirds of the product passing the 38 µm size fraction screen. Generally, this small size fraction of graphite is a by-product of processing of larger flake fractions, which produces smaller size graphite, but in doing so also damages the smaller flake material in the process, reducing their performance and value. Deposits that contain high quality ultra-fine graphite are uncommon and are potentially suitable for supplying the expanding battery anode market, which continues to grow as the sales of electric vehicles (EVs) increase. Graphite suitable for battery anode production also achieves premium pricing in graphite markets, making it a highly sought-after product.
