Empire Metals Ltd, up 45% at 2.69 pence, 12-month range 0.75p-2.85p. says its results from its maiden reverse circulation drill programme at the Pitfield project, located in Western Australia, have confirmed the presence of a giant-scale hydrothermal mineral system enriched in titanium and copper. It explains that these fluids are thought to be responsible for the significant enrichment of both copper and titanium in these sedimentary host rocks. Managing Director Shaun Bunn said: ‘We are absolutely thrilled with the results of our maiden drilling campaign. Our research over the past year pointed to the presence of a newly recognized giant copper mineral system at Pitfield, in itself no minor feat, however the results announced today add a whole new dimension to this globally important asset - the discovery of titanium rich minerals in my view tells us we have a ’Land of Giants‘ to explore.’ Empire holds a 70% interest in Pitfield which is comprised of four granted exploration licences, covering 1,042 kilometres squared.
