Cyprium Metals (ASX: CYM) fetches spectacular shallow copper-gold assays at Nanadie Well


  • Cyprium Metals’ remaining set of assay results from Phase 1 RC drilling returned 2m @ 8.9% Cu. 
  • The 3500-metre drilling program was undertaken in January this year. 
  • The Company intends to use the results from Phase 1 drilling to prepare Mineral Resource Estimate for the Nanadie Well project, expected in 2021. 

Cyprium Metals Limited (ASX: CYM) has unveiled an excellent set of Phase 1 Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling results, indicating extensive shallow assays of copper and gold at its Nanadie Well Cu-AU Project. The 3500-metre drilling program was conducted in January 2021 with the aim to define the extent of mineralisation.

Cyprium’s Managing Director Barry Cahill hailed the results from initial Phase 1 drilling, which demonstrated copper-gold mineralisation continuity across an extended strike, open to the north and south. 

He added that the broad, continuous, and significantly shallow horizon of supergene mineralisation enhances the value of the already attractive Nanadie Well project. Mr Cahill added that the Company was looking forward to the assay results from diamond drilling and would review downhole geophysics data concerning the sulphide mineralised zone.

Mineralisation at Nanadie Well

At the Nanadie Well project, a shallow oxide and supergene mineralisation has been identified, which is open to the north and south (along strike) as well as to the west (across strike). The oxide/supergene mineralisation, obscured by transported material of 1-25 metres depth, does not outcrop.

The project’s deposit data was investigated to indicate oxide/supergene mineralisation potential over the 750m strike. The Company indicated that the drilling results so far have confirmed the preliminary analysis.

Activities Planned at Nanadie Well

Cyprium Metals wrapped up Phase 1 RC drilling programme in January this year and tested the deposit’s oxide as well as supergene mineralisation. 

The Company intends to use the results from Phase 1 and further drilling programmes to prepare mineral resource estimate (JORC 2012 compliant) for Nanadie Well during the calendar year. It will then be included in the Murchison Cu-Au scoping study.
