The Navarre Minerals Ltd (ASX: NML) share price is gaining today. At the time of writing, the Navarre share price is up more than 10% to 16 cents.

This comes after the ASX gold and silver explorer reported on its air core drill results this morning.

What drill results did Navarre report?

The Navarre share price is well and truly on the rise today. Indeed, this rise comes after the company reported “outstanding gold and silver results”. These results were detected at its Glenlyle project in western Victoria.

The assay results come from Navarre’s 8,400 metre air-core drilling program. The top results included grades of up to 301 grams per tonne of silver. Additionally, it reported 1.3 grams per tonne of gold.

Navarre said the strong results indicate it is “honing in on a large concealed polymetallic mineralised system”. The company has already started a 2,000-metre diamond core drilling program to further understand the mineralised system.

Comments from the managing director

On the results, Navarre’s managing director, Ian Holland said:

The latest air-core drilling results are outstanding and we have immediately kickstarted a diamond core drilling campaign to test the depth extents of a potentially large polymetallic mineral system on the Glenlyle tenement.

The mineralised footprint at Morning Bill has now doubled in strike length, with further extensions likely given visual analysis of material drilled but not yet assayed.

Holland added that Navarre was optimistic about the “broad widths and tenor of the results… as well as the presence of a large magnetic low corresponding with this mineralisation”.

The company stated it will now focus on verifying and reporting the remaining results from the air core drilling program. In addition, it is also focusing on completing the 2,000-metre diamond core drilling program it just commenced.
