Argent wraps up Kempfield’s reconnaissance work

Argent Minerals (ASX:ARD) has completed the second ground geochemical reconnaissance program around its wholly owned Kempfield Polymetallic deposit in New South Wales. 

As this news service previously reported, the $12.91 million market capitalisation company aimed to delineate drill targets based on the surface geochemistry. 

The company submitted 376 rock chip samples to ALS Laboratory. Results are anticipated to be returned shortly. 

Reconnaissance work was completed over Kempfield North, Kempfield North-East, Sugarloaf Barite, Sugarloaf North-East, Henry, and Golden Wattle. 

Based on the extensive untested gossan outcrops and historical mining, Argent highlighted these zones as ‘high priority’ exploration targets to generate new drill targets for 2024. 

Argent reports Kempfield North and North-East were selected based on the poorly tested extensive outcropping gossans which extend over 100m in length from the main ore zones within the Kempfield deposit. 

This zone has been interpreted as a potential extension of the main mineralised system. 

Argent Minerals is a minerals explorer focused on precious and base metals. The company has 2,876km-square of exploration ground in New South Wales, Western Australia, and Tasmania. 

As of 31 December 2023, the company had $1.976 million cash and cash equivalents at hand, according to its latest quarterly report.
