Key Points

  • Demetallica has released the first quarterly report since its ASX listing on the 26th of May
  • The company is to boost its Jericho mineral resource in fourth quarter of 2022; Windsor assay results due in same timeframe
  • Despite rough seas, Demetallica has weathered its maiden voyage onto the bourse in fairly robust fashion

Demetallica (ASX:DRM) is proving itself as a robust junior explorer after less than three months on the market, with today’s quarterly revealing a management team getting on with the job. 

Likely of foremost interest to investors, Demetallica expects to upgrade its mineral resource estimate attached to the QLD ‘Chimera’ polymetal project by the end of the year.

Chimera encapsulates the Jericho prospect, which has consistently returned strong copper grades in initial drilling. 

What’s so good about Jericho?

Earlier this month, Demetallica unveiled its maiden assays at Jericho.

Those results came only weeks after the company first commenced trading on the ASX. By the time its ticker was live, activity was already underway on-site. 

The company has noted its current mineral resource estimate is only based on a 2.2km strike length, whereas targets across both J1 and J2 lodes comprise a total of 3.7km.

Currently, two drill rigs are active on-site targeting two lodes that comprise Jericho.

What else is on the cards? 

Demetallica’s assets are located across Queensland and South Australia. 

Broken down: 

South Australia contains 

  • The Peake and Denison JV project (polymetal)

  • The Lake Purdilla project (gypsum)

Queensland contains 

  • The Chimera project (polymetal) 

  • The Windsor project (polymetal)

  • The Cannington project (polymetal) 

  • The Pyramid project (pure gold play)
