Tempest Minerals kicks off exploration work at Remorse target in WA

Tempest Minerals (ASX:TEM) has begun a surface geochemistry extension program at its Remorse copper, zinc, nickel, and rare earths target in Western Australia. 

The $7.6 million market capitalisation company says the surface geochemistry work is designed to extend the more-than-4km Remorse target alongside sampling at new targets near new gold discoveries. 

The Remorse target forms part of Tempest’s wider Yalgoo project portfolio.

In conjunction with current fieldwork, Tempest has established a heritage partnership with the traditional owners of the WA region. The company says it will work with the Badima people through the BLAC/BBAC corporation structures, with this partnership allowing the Badima to provide cultural heritage advisory in the region in which Tempest is operating. 

Tempest says it also expects these groups to provide ongoing cultural and other specialist services to the company and others operating in the region. 

The current field programs across the company’s WA targets are expected to take around 2 weeks to complete, with assays from the geochem work due early in the final quarter of 2023. 

Meanwhile, the company plans to continue progressing on multiple exploration fronts, including drilling within the Yalgoo Project. 

Tempest Minerals is an Australia-based mineral exploration company with a diversified portfolio of projects in Western Australia. The company’s portfolio of assets is considered ‘highly prospective’ for precious, base, and energy metals. 

As of 30 June 2023, the company had $2.644 million cash and cash equivalents at hand, according to its latest quarterly report.
