Cyprium Metals Limited (CYM.ASX, 20.5cps, m.cap A$8.97m with 44.7m SOI, Cash $2.4m, Copper Developer)

  • CYM have announced results from a regional field mapping and surface sampling programme at the Cue Copper Project's Eelya South prospect, which has previously had minimal drilling activities, located approximately 5 km south of the existing Hollandaire copper mineralisation.
  • High grade surface samples include:
    • 19.7% Cu in surface sample ES13 including 0.9 g/t Au and 32.5 g/t Ag  
    • 14.5% Cu in surface sample ES11 including 2.7 g/t Au and 14.0 g/t Ag  
    • 11.4% Cu in surface sample ES15 including 0.7 g/t Au and 55.5 g/t Ag  
    • 9.6% Cu in surface sample ES12 including 4.1 g/t Au and 47.5 g/t Ag  
    • 9.2% Cu in surface sample ES08 including 0.8 g/t Au and 19.5 g/t Ag
  • The rock chip surface samples and observed surface mineralisation at the Eelya South prospect are very encouraging, consequently a Reverse Circulation ("RC") drilling programme has been accelerated at this prospect. This program will be conducted in conjunction with drilling at the Hollandaire deposit and at the Rapier prospect, during November and December 2019. 
  • Executive Director Barry Cahill commented “We are extremely pleased to report these high-grade copper samples from a shear occurring at surface for more than five hundred metres in length. We look forward to drilling this target, along with other regional prospects and extensions to Hollandaire from mid-November. The results received to date have reinforced the potential copper endowment of the Cue Copper Project.”
