Argent Minerals (ASX:ARD) has announced assay results from the rock chip sampling programme which provide further confirmation of outcropping silver-lead-zinc mineralisation outside the defined Resource at its 100%-owned Kempfield Polymetallic Project in NSW. Argent Managing Director Mr Pedro Kastellorizos commented that “Surface assay results have confirmed the discovery of mineralised extension zones along strike from the main Kempfield Deposit. These exciting new zones host the same geology and geochemical signatures as the main mineralisation over the Kempfield Deposit. Based on the defined mineralised dimensions, the strike of the mineralised zones surpasses the existing Kempfield JORC Resource area, elevating Kempfield’s exploration upside. We plan to drill these newly defined mineralised zones in 2024 once all regulatory approvals have been granted to Argent”. Shares are trading 50 per cent higher at 1.5 cents.
