American West Metals has started drilling at the Copper Warrior Project in Utah, USA, targeting near-surface copper deposits.

An induced polarisation survey identified sizable target areas with a geophysical signature indicative of copper mineralisation.

The drilling program, consisting of 10 initial reverse circulation drill holes, aims to test these high-priority areas and confirm the widespread presence of copper.

Further exploration plans include drilling, petrology and mineralogical studies, and geophysical surveys.
