Antipa Minerals kicks off growth-focused drilling program at Minyari Dome Gold-Copper Project, WA

Antipa Minerals (ASX:AZY) has begun its 2023 drilling program at its wholly owned Minyari Dome Gold-Copper Project in the Paterson Province of Western Australia.

The program consists of 12,000m to 15,000m of ‘growth-oriented’ drilling, including up to 9,000m of reverse circulation (RC), 5,000m of aircore, and 1,000m of diamond core drilling. The initial focus of this drilling is the recently discovered ‘large’ GEO-01 gold-copper prospect, located 1.3km south of the Minyari deposit. 

Commenting on this exploration program, Antipa Minerals Managing Director Roger Mason says: “This year’s exploration program is heavily focused on growth, with testing of compelling new targets offering the potential to rapidly and substantially increase the existing resource base at Minyari Dome.”

Additionally, the company announced in April it had received further funding grants from the Western Australian government’s Exploration Incentive Scheme (EIS) of up to $660,000. 

The funding will be used for the drill testing of a deep plunge target at Minyari and the Tetris and Pacman greenfield targets.

Antipa Minerals is a mineral exploration company focused on the discovery of gold-copper deposits in the ‘highly prospective’ Paterson Province of Western Australia. The company’s current tenement holding covers over 5,100km-square.
