Exploration work at Palmer has actually continued to grow the approximated resource in 2 deposits to an indicated resource of 4.68 million tonnes of grade 5.23%zinc, 1.49%copper, 30.0 g/t silver, 0.30 g/t gold. Is a presumed resource of 9.6 million tonnes of grade 4.95%zinc, 0.59%copper, 69.3 g/t silver and 0.39 g/t gold.

VMS deposits are understood to take place in clusters, and with a minimum of 25 different base metal/or barite events and potential customers on the Palmer task, the business states there is plentiful capacity for discovery of numerous deposits.

In 2019, the business reported a favorable initial financial evaluation (PEA), describing the capacity for a prospective low capex, low operating expense, high margin underground mining operation.
