Assays Confirm Outstanding Copper Intersections At The Storm Copper Project, Canada

American West Metals Limited (American West or the Company) (ASX: AW1 | OTCQB: AWMLF) is pleased to provide an update on the drill program at the Storm Copper Project (Storm or the Project) on Somerset Island, Nunavut.


Assay results have been received for a further five drill holes from the current program at the 4100N Zone, and all have intersected thick intervals of near-surface copper sulphides with grades up to 70% Cu. The assays continue to match or exceed our visual estimates as reported in previous ASX annoucements.

The near-surface setting, large volumes, and high-grades of the copper mineralisation support the potential for a low-cost open pit mining operation. We continue to assess this outstanding opportunity with resource modelling, ore beneficiation test work (including ore sorting) and environmental studies in progress.

Dave O'Neil, Managing Director of American West Metals commented:

"The second batch of assays for the drilling at the 4100N Zone has continues to impress, confirming futher thick intervals of copper mineralisation very close to surface.

"Mulitple high-grade assay results highlight the presence of more semi-massive and massive sulphide copper zones within the ore body, which we believe will significantly boost the overall resource grade.

"The mineralisation at Storm is quickly demonstrating the quality and scale of what we believe will become a premier, open-pit copper mining opportunity.

"We look forward to providing further updates on drilling and other exploration activities in the coming weeks."

Aston Bay and American West Metals Confirm High Grade Copper and Zinc Mineralization at the Tempest Prospect, Storm Copper Project, Canada

Aston Bay and American West Metals Confirm High Grade Copper and Zinc Mineralization at the Tempest Prospect, Storm Copper Project, Canada

  • Up to 38.2% Cu and 30.8% Zn in assays for select grab sampling of surface gossan rocks at the underexplored Tempest Prospect
  • Prospective gossans have been mapped for more than 4km at Tempest, which is located 40km south of the Storm Copper targets drilled in 2023
  • A ground electromagnetic (EM) survey at Tempest has defined a series of EM anomalies that coincide with the high-grade copper and zinc gossans, providing high-priority drill targets for the 2024 field program
  • Magnetic data indicates that Tempest may be located on a major structural unconformity - a geological setting that is highly prospective for base metals
  • The impressive results at Tempest further highlight the large-scale regional potential within the Project area

Aston Bay Holdings Ltd. (TSXV:BAY)(OTCQB:ATBHF) ("Aston Bay" or the "Company") reports the assay results from reconnaissance sampling and new geophysical surveys from the Tempest Prospect ("Tempest"), located within the Storm Copper Project ("Storm" or the "Project") on Somerset Island, Nunavut. The program was conducted by American West Metals Limited ("American West"), who is the operator of the Project

"It is encouraging to confirm copper and zinc mineralization from surface samples at Tempest, as this opens a new area for further exploration at Storm," stated Thomas Ullrich, CEO of Aston Bay.

Top 5 ASX Copper Stocks of 2024

Copper prices have traded at record highs in recent years, and although the red metal is facing strong headwinds in 2024, experts have positive expectations for the market in the years ahead.

Prices for the base metal pulled back to three month lows in mid-February, dampened by continued lagging economic indicators in China. However, in the long term, many market watchers see tight supply and higher consumption from sectors like the electric vehicle industry creating a robust outlook for copper.

Against that backdrop, the top ASX copper stocks have put on impressive year-to-date share price performances. The list below outlines the top gainers, and was generated on February 13, 2024, using TradingView’s stock screener; all copper stocks listed had market caps above AU$50 million at that time. Read on to learn more about them.

Global VMS Deposits Make Attractive Investment Targets

Typically occurring as lenses of polymetallic massive sulfides, volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) deposits are major sources of copper, zinc, lead, silver and gold.

These deposits are frequently regarded as potential 'elephant country' due to their tendency to occur in clusters within mining districts. Factor in their size and longevity, and it becomes clear why these deposits are so valuable to investors.

Particularly against a backdrop of price fluctuations and supply chain instability, VMS deposits can act as a financial cushion for an investment portfolio.
