Managing Director Rob Watkins commented:
“These stunning first pass drill results from Lady Fanny just 3 km north of the spectacular Nil Desperandum high grade discovery really demonstrate the untapped potential of the greater than 5km long IOCG corridor that is rapidly emerging within the Greater Duchess Copper Gold Project.”
Carnaby has experienced astronomic growth in the last month. The company has gained a whopping 466.67% since 16 December 2021.
