Tennant Minerals reports bonanza drilling results

Recent stories

Tennant Minerals has announced its latest drilling results at the Bluebird Copper-Gold Prospect near Tennant Creek revealed a discovery of a rich new gold shoot with bonanza grades.

The company says the results highlight Bluebird’s potential to rival other high-grade copper and gold deposits including Peko and Nobles Nob, located just 20 kilometres west of Bluebird.

Tennant Minerals Chairman Matthew Driscoll said the latest drilling results from Bluebird are stunning.

“Not only have we continued to intersect thick, high-grade copper, but we have also discovered a distinct high-grade gold shoot within the broader mineralised zone with spectacular intersection grades of up to 38.5 grams per tonne gold,” he said.

“We have really only scratched the surface at Bluebird, with the copper-gold discovery zone still completely open to the west and below 200 metres depth.

In addition to Bluebird, we have identified at least another 12 untested magnetic/gravity targets with a similar signature to Bluebird along the five kilometre Bluebird geophysical corridor.

“It is an exciting time for the Company and its shareholders as we await the remaining results from our latest drilling program at Bluebird and define additional new drilling targets along the corridor to continue building and expanding this significant new high-grade copper-gold discovery.”
