Commentary from management
Eagle Mountain Mining’s CEO Tim Mason said the company is excited about its discovery:
We are thrilled by the outstanding grades but also extremely pleased by the thickness of the mineralised zone at the Leatherwood contact.
I sincerely thank our dedicated geology team, including Fabio Vergara and Brian Paull, for their work which has led to this exciting discovery.
While drilling continues, we are expediting earthworks to obtain access to new drill pads, particularly in the southern area where strongly mineralised holes drilled in the 1970s have never been followed up.
