Drilling nearing completion. Defense Metals released results for the first two drill holes, representing 720 meters of drilling, associated with the company’s ongoing 2022 diamond drill program. To date, 15 drill holes, representing 4,800 meters of drilling, have been completed. In aggregate, the company expects to complete 5,000 meters of drilling in 18 holes to upgrade existing resource categories. The company is completing remaining pit slope geotechnical and hydrogeological holes. The initial results were favorable and demonstrate continuity of mineralization over significant widths. Investors should expect a steady flow of assay results from the company in the weeks and months ahead.
Encouraging drill results. Hole WI22-64 returned a broad mineralized intercept of high-grade dolomite carbonate in the upper portions of the hole, and mixed mineralized xenolithic dolomite carbonate and syenite at depth averaging 1.78% total rare earth oxide (TREO) over 192 meters, including 3.13% TREO over 73 meters. The partial assays reported for WI22-64, one of the deepest holes drilled to date, are from surface to a depth of 284 meters. Results for the remaining 101 meters to the end of hole at 384.5 meters are expected shortly. Hole WI22-62 collared 120 meters to the north of WI22-64, intersected a 109-meter interval of mineralized dolomite carbonatite returning 1.39% TREO over 167 meters, including 2.29% TREO over 48 meters.
