  • Diamond drilling has commenced at the West Desert zinc-copper-indium deposit, Utah
  • The initial drill program is designed to expand the known mineralisation by testing the continuity of key high-grade zinc and copper zones
  • The results will be used to support a JORC mineral resource estimation and to progress scoping study activities

The West Desert Deposit is a large historical and foreign resource (Ni 43-101 compliant) of over 59Mt, including a higher-grade core of approximately 16.5Mt @ 6.3% Zn, 0.3% Cu and 33g/t In, which significantly, remains open at depth and along strike.
