London-listed Aterian has announced results, including 4.43% copper and 3.11% copper from brecciated vein samples, from geological work completed on its Jebilet Est project.
The project, which covers an area of 45.2 km2, is located north of Marrakech within the Marrakech-Safi region of Morocco.
The project is one of 15 copper, silver and base metal projects owned by Aterian which cover a total area of 762 km2 in Morocco.
High-grade copper has been reported from outcrop sampling.
An extensive vein system was identified on the Eastern licence and a 3-km-long vein zone mapped on the Western licence.
Aterian points out that the project is located close to good infrastructure.
The company’s Moroccan projects are located in established current and historic mining districts. Jebilet is located 15 km east of the historic Bir N’Hass copper mine.
“These results from the work on the Jebilet Est project are highly encouraging and further demonstrate the strong potential of our portfolio of copper-focused targets in Morocco. We firmly believe that our asset portfolio will deliver value potential to the company, its shareholders and other stakeholders.
