According to Carnaby’s managing director, Rob Watkins, today’s announcement confirms “the strong continuity of the broad high-grade Nil Desperandum breccia which has been traced for over 500m and getting bigger and better at depth.”

Today’s assay results included 60.3m @ 0.9% copper and 0.1g/t gold from 256m.

Carnaby has moved fast to capitalise on the discovery. The company has increased the Greater Duchess Copper Gold and Tick Hill Gold project area by 638 to 1,022 of tenure.

Outside of Nil Desperandum, results are still pending from drilling at the Lady Fanny and Burke & Wills prospects, where significant copper sulphides have been observed in drill chips. Numerous holes were drilled at these prospects at the end of last year. 

An explosive month of growth

Despite losing ground in today’s correction, the company has experienced an exceptional few weeks. 

Carnaby skyrocketed 377% in the last month. The near-vertical growth saw the company soar from $0.27 on 10 December to $1.275 at the close of markets today.
