Caprice Resources (ASX:CRS) has returned exceptional results from the first hole of the Lady Sampson RC drilling at the Northampton Polymetallic project in the Northampton Mineral Field of Western Australia.

Caprice Resources says Northampton is a historical mining area with more than 100 years of base metals mining, with minimal on-ground exploration completed during the last 50 years.

The company highlighted results of 14m at 7.6% lead, 1.1% zinc, and 3.1g/t silver from 39m; including 6m at 11.4% lead, 1.7% zinc, and 4.4g/t silver from 40m; and 3m at 4.2% lead, 2.2% zinc, and 4.6g/t silver from 67m.

Caprice Resources says the remainder of the assays are expected to be received in coming weeks, and follow-up drilling will be fast-tracked, with planning well advanced.
