Rumble Resources Ltd (ASX: RTR) shares have had a bumper 12 months but are edging lower today. At the time of writing, the Rumble Resources share price is trading 0.81% lower at 61 cents. 

This comes after the ASX resource company’s latest activities report for the quarter ending 31 March. Let’s take a look at how it’s been performing.

Quarterly highlights

The Rumble Resources share price is slumping today after the company updated investors on its continuing program to advance its projects across Western Australia.

Rumble Resources highlighted the major zinc-lead discovery it reported to the market on 19 April. The confirmed discovery at its Earaheedy Project in Wiluna followed 3,593 metres of reverse circulation (RC) drilling. The Rumble Resources share price leapt 90% during intraday trading on the day of the announcement as ASX investors digested the news.

The company also reported that 18,776 metres of phase 3 resource drilling have been completed at its Western Queen Gold Project in Mt Magnet. Assays for the maiden gold resources are pending.

Meanwhile, an airborne electromagnetic (EM) survey is planned at the company’s Warroo Cu-Zn-Pb-Ag-Au-U-Pt Project in East Pilbara in the June quarter. Rumble is targeting large scale Cu-Zn-Pb-Ag volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) ore deposits. It stated the area has the potential to become a new VMC province.

Also in the pipeline for the June quarter are exploration programs at Rumble’s Fraser Range Ni-Cu-Au JV Project. Drilling at the Thunderstorm Au-Cu Project will be targeting ‘tier 1’ gold deposits. Drilling at the Thunderdome Ni-Cu Project will target large scale nickel-copper deposits.

The company ended the quarter with $3.3 million of cash and $266,000 in listed investments.

During the quarter, on 28 April, Rumble Resources also raised $40 million at 50 cents per share, supported by new institutional and sophisticated investors. That’s 11 cents per share less than the current Rumble Resources share price.

The company plans to use the proceeds to advance its projects across the board, with a focus on accelerating its exploration program at the Earaheedy Project.
