Adriatic Metals PLC (ASX:ADT) this morning revealed it has received assay results from the first hole completed in its 15,000 metre drilling program at Rupice in Bosnia.

Rupice is an advanced exploration project that displays exceptionally high grades of base and precious metals.

Encouragingly, the first hole in ADT’s 2018 campaign has returned a combination of the highest grade and thickest intercept to date — 64m at 4.6g/t gold, 537g/t silver, 0.9% copper, 7.7% lead, 10.8% zinc, 46% barite.

These initial results confirm the consistency of the previously drilled, high-grade northern zone at Rupice, suggesting exceptional growth potential.

Drill hole BR-2-18 was drilled in a westerly direction at -60 ̊ to test the down dip and down plunge extension of high-grade mineralisation intersected in ADT’s 2017 drilling program — specifically, hole BR-1-17. The intersection represents an 80 metre down dip extension and a 50 metre down plunge extension from BR-1-17.

The mineralisation is very visible and consists of galena, sphalerite, chalcopyrite and barite hosted within brecciated sediments which are typically strata bound and dipping at 50 ̊ to the east.

The results include:

Of course, as with all minerals exploration, success is not guaranteed — consider your own personal circumstances before investing, and seek professional financial advice.

Previously, ADT also undertook a sampling program at the dumps of Juresvac Brestic (JB Zone) — the site of an historic exploration adit. Assays have now been received, and these confirm a significant gold grade in these samples.

Compellingly, the tenor of this mineralisation is similar to that observed at Rupice, providing confidence that the source of mineralisation may be related in both zones. ADT will undertake further exploration to determine the potential continuity of these zones within the geological corridor between them.

ADT CEO, Geraint Harris, said: “The results from BR-2-18 are exciting in a number of respects: firstly, we have revealed the continuation of thick mineralisation on an 80m step out hole, which has the potential to add significant tonnes to any future resource. Secondly, we have assays confirming that this extension has grade continuity in excess of the exceptionally high grade precious and base metals content of BR-1-17, which make these some of the highest grade polymetallic results on the ASX.”

“The presence of high grade gold in the dumps at Jurasevac gives us further confidence in the JB Zone as a high grade polymetallic deposit in a style similar to Rupice. Our first holes at the JB Zone are currently underway and the drilling target coincides with a strong geochemical soil anomaly and a significant gradient array IP (GAIP) signature,” Harris added.

Notably, ADT is one of the few independent near-term zinc development companies on the ASX and the first and only company on the ASX with exposure to Bosnia and Herzegovina.

This seems to be reflected in its upwardly moving share price, which is currently up 14.7 per cent at 19.5 cents.
