Arc Minerals Limited (ARCM.L) Commencement of drilling

Arc is pleased to announce the commencement of a diamond drill programme on its majority-controlled licenses in north-western Zambia.

Diamond drilling activities are underway at the Fwiji Target Area (‘Fwiji’) following further technical work and analysis from last year’s exploration drilling campaign.

The programme will initially centre on a linear feature ~2km to the south of last year’s drilling at Fwiji where a coincident magnetic and soil anomaly has been identified.

This year’s programme will also focus on the Cheyeza and Muswema Target areas where the drill target locations are to be finessed upon the completions of a high resolution airborne geophysical survey over these target areas.

Nick von Schirnding, Executive Chairman of Arc Minerals, commented:

“I am very pleased that our drilling programme is underway following extensive work that our geologists have completed over the past six months. As previously disclosed, this year’s drilling programme will aim to drill significantly deeper holes to better understand the stratigraphy of the exciting targets we have identified.

Separately, a number of discussions are currently underway with interested third parties in respect of a potential commercial transaction in respect of Arc’s copper exploration licences in Zambia.

I look forward to an exciting period ahead for Arc’s shareholders.”
