American West Metals Limited (American West or the Company) (ASX: AW1), is pleased to announce the results of the recent gravity survey that was completed over the West Desert Project in Utah (West Desert or the Project).


  • New high-resolution gravity survey completed by American West over the West Desert Deposit and broader project area
  • Multiple gravity anomalies identified that are interpreted as West Desert Deposit look-alikes
  • Historical drilling indicates potential association of gravity anomalies with high-grade zinc- copper-lead mineralisation
  • American West’s inaugural drill programme at West Desert to commence this week, with planning and permitting underway to also test new exploration targets with a second drill rig.

The gravity survey was the first of its type completed over the West Desert Project area and was designed to image the known deposit – 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%Cuand33g/tIn– and porphyry system, and identify new focus areas for exploration.

Significantly, the West Desert Deposit presents as a distinct gravity anomaly in the data, with multiple other similar anomalies – in areas with little to no drilling – also recorded in the survey data.
