R3D Resources share price climbs on drilling update

The R3D Resources share price is surging on news drilling has confirmed geophysical IP anomalies are mapping sulphide mineralisation at Tartana.

The company noted the findings mean there is the potential for higher grades of gold, silver, and cobalt in the project’s Valentino prospect.

The drilling was designed to test major targets outside of the Tartana Project’s copper mineralised zone, found in its pit area.

So far, it has found an extensive mineralised zone of between around 1% and 10% sulphides. That is made up of mostly pyrite and chalcopyrite.

Roughly 400 metres away from the Tartana Project’s existing pit, more than 60 metres of sulphides were found. Up to another 30 metres of mineralised sulphides were found in downhole intersections east of the pit.

R3D Resources’ managing director Steve Bartrop commented on the findings driving the company’s share price today:

The visible mineralisation evident in the core confirms that Tartana porphyry copper mineralisation is far more extensive than the immediate open pit environs. These holes have enabled broad testing of targets which support the potential for a future copper sulphide project.

The drilling program that has uncovered the results announced today aims to cover 1,600 metres in total. So far, the company has drilled a total of 1,220 metres.
