Adriatic Metals share price gets a boost
Investors were driving up the Adriatic Metals share price today after the company announced it has received three new exploration permits. This means the company can now mine more areas in its Vares Project located in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Adriatic Metals is the only listed company mining in the country.
The three permits have expanded the area Adriatic Metals can explore by 32 square kilometres.
Now, Adriatic Metals plans to commence its exploration at the project. Before applying for the permits to explore the area, the company conducted preliminary sampling. The sampling found seven high-priority targets in the newly permitted areas.
Radiometric surveying has also uncovered a large alteration system under the areas the permits have been received for.
Adriatic Metals has also completed magnetic surveys, which have highlighted additional areas of interest within the new permit zones. The company has already been granted permission to mine using invasive exploration techniques, such as drilling and channel sampling.
A scoping study completed at the Vares Project in 2019 found it has a net value estimation of US$917 million.
