American West Metals is launching an extensive exploration program at the Storm Copper Project in Canada starting in March.

The program, backed by an additional $10 million in funding, plans to conduct approximately 22,000m of reverse circulation and diamond drilling.

The exploration will extend to new high-grade copper zones, including Blizzard, Tornado, and Tempest, utilising high-resolution surface electromagnetic surveys across the >100km copper belt.

The program also seeks to explore the emerging, large-scale sedimentary copper system.
