American West Metals Limited (American West or the Company) (ASX: AW1) is pleased to announce that the second diamond drill hole has been successfully completed at the West Desert Project in Utah (West Desert or the Project).

  • A total of 332m of mineralisation over nine intervals identified in drill core of WD22-01C, the second diamond drill hole completed by AW1 at the West Desert Project
  • Extensive semi-massive and massive copper sulphides along with further strong zinc and molybdenite intervals have been visually logged in the drill hole with assays pending
  • Excellent resource growth potential confirmed with the majority of the mineralisation intersected in WD22-01C outside of the historical resource
  • Third drill hole is currently underway targeting shallow high-grade mineralisation for open pit potential

Drill hole WD22-01C was designed to test extensions of high-grade copper mineralisation along the porphyry and skarn contact on the margins of the historical West Desert Deposit.

An impressive total of 332m of copper, zinc and molybdenite mineralisation has been visually identified in the drill core. The mineralisation is distributed through nine major intervals, most of which are located outside of the historical resource envelope. These new extensions of the known mineralised zones have the potential to add substantial additional resources to the West Desert Deposit.

Significantly, the results in WD22-01C support the potential for further expansion of the West Desert Deposit. The copper rich zones in this part of the deposit remain open along strike and at depth, with historical intersections also containing significant gold. Additionally, strong and thick intervals of molybdenite mineralisation were encountered within the porphyry and skarn intersected by WD22-01C and appear to be increasing in abundance with depth.
