At the time of writing, the Pensana Metals Ltd (ASX: PM8) share price is up 14.29% to 4.8 cents following the announcement of drilling results by the company.

What was in the announcement?

The company reported results from the last 86 holes of its 8,000 metre drill program, completed at its Longonjo project in Angola. 

Pensana Metals identified fresh rock mineralisation that, according to the announcement, adds a whole new dimension to its Longonjo project. The company identified wide, continuous high intersections with 2% to 4% rare earth oxides. These were returned from fresh rock immediately below the weathered zone.

Pensana Metals has commenced work on an updated mineral resource estimate that, according to the company, will be reported in September. 

According to the Pensana Metals COO and Executive Director, Dave Hammond, the results will allow the company to upgrade its existing resource categories and extend the life of the mine. He stated;

“These final results have further highlighted the world-class opportunity at the Longonjo project. The drilling continues to prove the continuity of the weathered mineralisation, returning significant grades from surface outside our current mine plan. We expect these infill drilling results will allow us to upgrade the existing resource categories and extend the mine life.”
