Which explorer is soaring so high today?
The post Guess which tiny ASX mining share just rocketed 74% on an ‘outstanding’ new copper find appeared first on The Motley Fool Australia. –
The S&P/ASX 200 Materials Index (ASX: XMJ) is leaping 1.28% today, but one ASX mining share is exploding far higher.
The Cobre Ltd (ASX: CBE) share price is currently up more than 74% to 15 cents.
Let’s take a look at why investors are buying up this mineral explorer‘s shares today.
Why is this ASX mining share lifting?
Investors are buying up Cobre shares today on the back of another significant copper intersection.
Drilling at the second diamond drill hole intersected “abundant chalcocite mineralisation” at the Ngami Copper Project in Botswana.
Cobre said the result shows mineralisation from about 55m below surface at a strike length of more than 2km.
Commenting on today’s news, executive chairman and managing director Martin Holland said:
The Ngami Copper Project in Botswana is demonstrating exceptional promise with this outstanding
copper intersection which confirms that we are potentially sitting on a new copper discovery within the Kalahari Copper Belt.
This new intersection is 1km away from our initial diamond hole that also intersected significant copper mineralisation.
This has been a phenomenal start to our drilling program, which includes a total of 57 high-priority
targets, and is only just the beginning
The company is now working on a third diamond drill hole at the project. Cobre plans to continue drilling at the site to define copper and base metals mineralisation at the project.
