The Coda Minerals Ltd (ASX: COD) share price has enjoyed a day in the green. Coda’s shares are up 16.11% at the time of writing, having earlier posted gains of more than 20%.

Below, we take a look at the ASX resource explorer’s latest drill results that appear to be driving investor interest.

What drill results were announced?

Coda Minerals’ share price is surging after the company reported promising results from its ongoing drilling program at Emmie Bluff Deeps, located in South Australia.

According to the release, new data from visual logging of core from the exploration campaign, conducted along with Coda’s joint venture partner Torrens Mining Ltd (ASX: TRN), has “significantly increased the interpreted scale of the copper-bearing mineralisation” at the project.

(The Torrens share price is up 10% at this same time.)

Coda said it has now intersected iron oxide copper gold ore (IOCG) style mineralisation over a significant area at Emmie Bluff Deeps. Its exploration model continues to evolve as new results come in.

One of the recent holes highlighted by the company encountered 67 metres of mineralisation over 2 vertically stacked lodes, including:

27 metres of bornite-chalcocite-covellite mineralisation from 803 metres down hole in the upper lode immediately adjacent to a significant fault zone
40 metres of blebby chalcopyrite dominated mineralisation (with trace disseminated bornite) from 913 metres down hole

Commenting on the drill results, Coda CEO Chris Stevens said:

These new results substantially increase the mineralised footprint of the system and show that there is a significant amount of copper present. We are also seeing increased thicknesses of potentially economic mineralisation and, importantly, the presence of a higher grade bornite core.

We are particularly encouraged by the intensity of alteration and abundance of sulphides which are being reported by our field team, as well as the fact that we are seeing far greater lateral extensions to the mineralisation than we have seen before.

There are 2 drill rigs on the site digging wedge holes to follow up on recent promising drill holes.

“Our task now is to continue to test the areas of open mineralisation as we seek to extend the copper-rich bornite zones and to further test areas for vertical extension and additional stacked lodes,” Stevens said.
