Encounter Resources uncovered a copper anomaly at its Yeneena Project in Western Australia's Paterson Province.

Aircore drilling, conducted in collaboration with IGO Limited through a $15M earn-in agreement, identified a robust copper-silver anomaly within an iron-manganese horizon near a major fault and an interpreted syncline.

The finding implies potential primary mineralisation at depth, prompting plans for additional drilling this year.

The initial aircore drilling phase yielded results, indicating leakage along a fault from primary mineralisation.
