Australian copper producer and explorer, Aeris Resources Limited (ASX: AIS), has provided an update on exploration activities within the Tritton tenement package. An initial assessment from an airborne electromagnetic survey has identified 25 anomalies for follow-up, with 9 of these considered high-priority targets. The results confirm the prospectivity of the under-explored northern half of the Tritton tenement package.

· Airborne electromagnetic (EM) survey covered 617km2 over the northern half of the Tritton tenement package
· Initial assessment identifies 25 EM anomalies for follow‐up – 9 of these are considered high priority targets
· Exciting result confirms the prospectivity of the under‐explored northern half of the tenement package
· Ground based high powered EM survey has commenced within the Murrawombie to Avoca Tank mineralised corridor
The final interpretation has been completed from a large (617km2) airborne EM survey over the northern half of the Tritton tenement package. The heliborne EM survey was flown using the innovative SKYTEMTM 312 EM system which is designed and optimised to test for deep conductor bodies.
Data from the EM survey has been processed and reviewed with 25 new mid to late time EM anomalies being identified. Of these 25 new anomalies, 9 are considered higher priority targets. On‐ground exploration will now focus on evaluating each target area and prioritizing ground based EM surveys and/or surface geochemistry of the most prospective targets in preparation for first pass drilling.
Aeris Resources Executive Chairman, Andre Labuschagne said, “This is an incredibly exciting result and proves the prospectivity of the under‐explored northern half of our Tritton tenement package.
“When you consider that to date 750,000 tonnes of copper has been discovered in the southern half of the Tritton tenement package, the upside on the northern half of the tenement package is significant.
“These 25 new anomalies are added to 4 that were identified from the 2017 aerial EM survey.” he said.
