Aston Bay Holdings Ltd. (TSX.V: BAY) (OTCQB: ATBHF), a publicly traded mineral exploration company exploring for high-grade copper and gold deposits in Virginia and Nunavut, Canada, along with its joint venture partner American West Metals Limited, is releasing an update on drilling and exploration activities at its Storm Copper Project on Somerset Island, Nunavut. According to the update, 30 reverse circulation (“RC “) drill holes have been completed with diamond drilling now also underway; the drilling program is increasing with more than 4,450 meters now completed. The company noted that recent drilling has targeted expansion at the Cyclone and Chinook Prospects as well as delineation drilling at Lightning Ridge and Thunder Prospect. The report stated that visual results have been received for 16 of the Lightning Ridge and Cyclone Deposit drill holes, and those results indicate a 100% hit rate for copper sulfides. The program is being conducted by American West Metals Limited. “The 2024 exploration program has ramped up production, and we are on track to drill the proposed 20,000 meters this season,” said Aston Bay CEO Thomas Ullrich in the press release. “The summer phase of drilling is hitting visual copper mineralization in every hole, expanding the already large zone of high-grade copper mineralization at Cyclone and confirming additional mineralization around last year’s discovery at Lightning Ridge. Most exciting for me is the intersection of a thick zone of copper sulfide mineralization across the fault from Cyclone in the down-dropped Central Graben. This extensive area holds the potential for significant additional discoveries concealed below the surface in this down-faulted block.”
