Alvo Minerals is launching a comprehensive maiden diamond drilling program at the Palma Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide Project, targeting high-priority untested copper-zinc prospects.

The initiative follows a thorough exploration strategy in 2023, identifying new prospects through mapping, geophysics, soil sampling, and auger drilling.

The company aims to drill up to 5,000m starting in early May, focusing on the multi-layered mineralisation within Palma, including two JORC resource deposits and a significant brownfields discovery in late 2023.

Drilling sites were chosen based on extensive multidisciplinary exploration, which identified three high-priority targets: Urubu, Anta, and C4-NE.
