The Kuniko Ltd (ASX: KNI) share price is treading lower on late Monday afternoon. This comes after the company announced an update on geochemical sampling analysis at its prospective Skuterud Cobalt project in Norway.

At the time of writing, the battery metals explorer’s shares are swapping hands for $1.21, down 1.22%

What were the results?

Investors appear unfazed by the company’s latest release to the ASX, sending the Kuniko share price lower.

In its statement, the company advised it has received the first geochemical soil sample assays from the Skuterud Cobalt Project. The encouraging results indicated a distinctive geochemical vector with arsenic, cobalt, and copper signatures towards the main ‘fahlband’ zone. This is believed to be extended for at least 12 kilometres in a north-western direction from the Skuterud Mine.

A more detailed assessment of the geological data will be conducted and completed by February 2022. This will allow Kuniko’s technical team to identify drilling targets for the 2022 field season.

Kuniko CEO, Antony Beckmand commented:

The assay results at our Skuterud Cobalt Project offer further support that the anomaly identified by our geophysics program is on point, putting us in a prime position to firm up a drilling program for next year. The investment in the airborne geophysics, combined with the extensive soil sampling campaign, demonstrates that there is significant upside exploration potential, with drilling by pervious explorer Berkut having missed the mark.

These results and the pending assays from our Vangrofta Copper Project enable us to plan an efficient drilling program for next year.
