Key Points

  • Reports of high-grade silver at Lode’s Tangoa West Prospect have seen Lode’s share price soar
  • Tangoa West is located 2km south of the Webbs Consol main shaft where drilling has also returned similar high grades
  • Electromagnetic surveys are currently underway ahead of further drilling

Lode Resources (ASX:LDR) investors have likely shaken off the market blues today as the company’s share price sits up 73% heading toward lunchtime trades. 

The response appears to have come solely from the company’s fresh announcement of a drill intercept containing extremely high grades of silver. 

Lode is reporting a 5m long core section with a density of mineralised silver equalling 1,000 grams per tonne. 

Generally, for silver to be considered high grade it need only exceed 50 grams per tonne, according to Undervalued Equity.

Underscores potential of Tangoa 

The company states today’s results from drillhole WCS019 demonstrate evidence of greater mineralisation at the project than previously thought. 

Newly discovered vertical mineralisation is changing the way the company has looked at the acreage so far with Lode’s geos now altering drilling programs to test deeper portions of mineral deposits. 

Tangoa sits within the company’s 100% owned Webbs Consol Silver-Base Metal Project in NSW. 

The project ultimately targets the New England Fold Belt geology. 

Webbs Consol was discovered in 1890, but numerous areas on-site have never been explored.

Deeper Phase II drilling planned 

The company is currently conducting down hole electromagnetic surveys and further geophysical surveys targeting areas of interest on site believed to host dense mineralisation. 

So far, targets ‘Shaft 1,’ ‘Lucky Lucy North’ and the newly hit Tangoa West target are on the cards for deeper Phase II drilling. 

Phase I drilling is still underway, with 10-15 drill holes remaining. 

On a one month basis, Lode Resources’ share price is up 73%. 

Year to date (YTD) performance sees the company’s share price up 30%.
