So what is going on with this millionaire-making miner?

Rumble Resources share price shakes the ground

Today’s performance of the Rumble Resources share price appears to be a continuation of the momentum we have seen in this company since its big announcement on Monday. As we covered at the time, Rumble announced that, as a result of drill testing, it had discovered a major zinc and lead depository at its Chinook Prospect.

According to the company, its findings mean that Chinook’s mineral deposits have the potential to be at the upper end of its exploration targets. That’s despite the testing only evaluating depths of 2km at Chinook, which goes as deep as 45km. Rumble noted this means that large (and cheap) open-cut mining is possible.

There have been no major announcements since Monday, but investors are evidently extremely excited, judging by the continuing performance of the Rumble Resources share price.
