This new zone consisted of multiple intervals of copper sulphide mineralisation over 75m, said Metal Tiger, whose joint-venture partner is Australia-listed MOD Resources.
Whilst sampling and assays were still in progress, Metal Tiger expected the results could be the most significant since the T3 discovery hole last March, 52m @ 2% copper and 32g/t silver, the company said.
"This previously unknown new zone of mineralisation was discovered during the T3 Resource infill drilling being conducted as part of the current Prefeasibility Study works," said CEO Michael McNeilly.
"The decision to extend the second and third drill holes to a depth well below the current T3 Resource base seems to have really paid off and we think that this new discovery has the potential to significantly improve the dynamics and economics of the T3 Deposit."
He said that, concurrent to the infill drilling, the ongoing IP geophysics survey work has identified several new anomalies that could be related to sulphide mineralisation in the vicinity of the T3 Deposit.
"The first of these new deep anomalies is currently being drilled and we look forward to the findings."
