The Lode Resources Ltd (ASX: LDR) share price is shooting out the lights today, up a whopping 120% to 33 cents a share.

Below, we look at the latest drilling update from the microcap ASX explorer that looks to be driving investor interest.

What drilling update was announced?

The Lode Resources share price is skyrocketing after the company reported promising results from the maiden diamond drill program at its Webbs Consol Silver Project, located in New South Wales.

Lode Resources has so far completed 6 drill holes, totalling 814 metres, at the project. It intends to drill a total of 1,500 metres. According to the release, “Mineralisation styles encountered range from coarse sulphide blebs to massive irregular sulphide veins.”

The company said that it observed “significant” zinc, lead and copper mineralisation in drill cores. It expects that assays will reveal associated silver mineralisation from the core samples.

All the drill hole intercepts have been cut and Lode has sent them to ALS in Brisbane. It estimates the results of the assays will be available in 3 to 4 weeks.

The best intercept from the 6 exploratory holes drilled to date was a “very encouraging” 27.5 metres “containing an estimated 15% sphalerite, 1% galena and 0.5% chalcopyrite”.

The company anticipates the assays will reveal silver mineralisation, as silver is known to be “strongly associated” with both sphalerite and galena at the project.

Drilling at the Webs Consol Silver Project is ongoing and Lode is testing down dip extensions alongside additional potential project targets.
