TEM confirms copper and other metals at Orion

Tempest Minerals Ltd (ASX:TEM) has confirmed the abundant presence of copper and other metals from a Down Hole Electromagnetic (DHEM) survey at the Orion target within its Meleya project in Western Australia, with the results helping to prioritise near-term drilling campaigns across the belt.

Significantly, assays have also identified zinc-sulphide mineralisation or sphalerite, which the explorer said is notoriously difficult to identify in early-stage projects.

Horizons of more than 200 metres in geological thickness with isolated greater enrichment were observed such as 18.9 metres at 362.2 parts per million (ppm) zinc) from 852.1 metres in WARDH72 including 1-metre at 1,710 ppm zinc from 852.1 metres.
