The company intersected 2.57% WO3 over 41.6 in the hole U1936, 3.16% WO3 over 25.3 m in the hole U1937 and 4.35% WO3 over 8.4 m in the hole U1943.

The focus of the present drilling program is on the defined deposit’s outer periphery. The Amber zone, a fresh area, is situated adjacent to the below 3700 level of the Central Flats and Western expansion regions and is present outside the currently outlined deposit. Follow up drill program is expected to commence immediately due to the presence of high-grade intersections and nearness to the present infrastructure.

North American Tungsten’s Chairman, Mr. Stephen Leahy commented that some high-grade intersections were identified outside the popular ore body in the previous years, along with the nearness of the Amber zone to accessible works. The company will be focusing to determine this new zone’s dimensions and how quickly the production can be commenced. He appreciated all the additional efforts and hard work given by all site workers.

Additionally, the company has started the diamond drill program on a 4000 ft program from previous works to outline the Amber zone.
