The Cannindah Resources Ltd (ASX: CAE) share price is rocketing to an all-time high today. This comes as the copper and gold company announced impressive assay results from its recent drilling operations.

During morning trade, Cannindah shares rose to a record high of 16 cents and are now trading at 15 cents apiece.

What were the results?

In its announcement, Cannindah advised the first assay results from Mt Cannindah have returned with significant copper and gold credits.

As such, the first drill hole (21CAEDD001) was abandoned after hitting old workings and mining voids at 6 metres deep.

The second hole (21CAEDD002) drilled mostly copper mineralised and sulphidic breccia over a depth of 330 metres. The intersection from the top portion (from ground level to 151 metres) achieved the following:

  • 117 metres at 1.01% copper, 0.39 grams per tonne of gold, and 28 grams per tonne of silver from 34 metres to 151 metres

Cannindah noted assays are currently waiting for the second part of the drill (from 150 metres to 330 metres). Initial visual indications suggest the rock contains primary copper mineralisation.

The third hole (21CAEDD003) has encountered a strong amount of copper mineralisation, with chalcocite rich supergene material from 15 metres to 33 metres. The hole was originally planned for a depth of 250 metres but extended to 762.5 metres. Assay results are pending but look extremely positive.

Cannindah is seeking to expand its current 5.5 million tonne JORC resource, with half of its ore reserves falling into the Indicated category. This represents a confident level of geological knowledge in Mt Cannindah containing probable copper, gold and silver credits.
