Established Australian copper-gold producer and explorer, Aeris Resources (ASX: AIS) has provided an update on exploration activities at the Constellation deposit, located within the Company’s 100% owned Tritton tenement package in New South Wales.
Assay results have been received from the third drill hole completed at the Constellation deposit. Drill hole TAKD003 intersected high grade copper mineralisation approximately 80 metres down dip from TAKD001 (19.95m @ 2.41% Cu, 0.64g/t Au and 4.6g/t Ag from 197.20m).
Approval has also been received from the NSW Resources Regulator for a further 25 drill holes at the Constellation deposit.
Aeris’ Executive Chairman, Andre Labuschagne, said: “Deposits within the Tritton tenement package are generally characterised by significant down dip continuity. Intersecting more high-grade copper in TAKD003, which is approximately 80 metres down dip from TAKD001, is very encouraging.”
“With three EM plates that remain open and approval received for a further 25 drill holes, the next phase drill program will be aiming to better define the boundaries of the Constellation deposit.”
