QMines has returned 5.1 per cent copper equivalent (Cu-Zn-Au) from its historically high-grade Mt Chalmers copper-gold mine in central Queensland.
The results compound excitement for the company with imminent results from a further eight holes and electromagnetic survey data from the site’s 316 square kilometres of volcanogenic massive sulfide ore deposits.
The company said step-out drilling is continuing on several of the deposit’s open ends.
“The historic Mt Chalmers mine continues to deliver shallow, thick and high-grade copper and gold results,” executive chairman Andrew Sparke said.
“The RC drill rig and our drilling team are performing exceptionally well with significantly more meters being delivered regularly.”
While drilling continues unabated, the ESG-focused company will continue exploring other advanced copper and gold projects in the sunshine state.
