Recently, on 12 December 2018, the company announced the assay results from 17 holes within the 3.6-kilometer strike of the Walford Resource which currently comprises the Vardy and Marley Zones at the Walford Creek Project. The assay results have confirmed the strong geological continuity and its relationship to both the Cu-Co mineralization and the peripheral Pb-Zn-Co-Ag mineralization through the current Resource.
The company held its Annual general meeting on 12 November 2018 at which the company’s Chairman Mr. Paul Harris informed that the last 12 months has been a significant period of development for Aeon Metals as drilling in 2018 has greatly enhanced the size and continuity of the company’s high-grade Tier 1 Copper Cobalt project. He further added that the company’s Walford Creek Project in northwest Queensland represents one of the best, new world-class Copper Cobalt mineral systems outside the DRC.
In FY 2018, the company completed two significant capital raising event for the total amount of $36.5million which enabled a recapitalization of the Company by paying down debt, while also broadening the register and, importantly, funding the company’s 2018 drill program. During FY 2018, the company also completed its Drill Program which was commenced in April 2018 and completed on 31 October 2018. The company believes that successful results from the drill campaign will lead to a material increase in the high-grade Marley and Vardy Resource. Further, the company also believe that it is well placed to add significant shareholder value in 2019 with a Resource upgrade and release of a Feasibility Study for Walford Creek.
