Hammer Metals received a $300,000 grant from the Queensland Government's Collaborative Exploration Initiative to advance exploration of the Hardway copper and rare earth mineral system.

The funding will facilitate detailed diamond drilling at the Hardway prospect, building upon recent data from a single reverse circulation drill hole.

The grant enhances Hammer Metals' exploration in North Queensland, enabling thorough examination of mineralisation at depth and aiding in analysing alteration patterns and mineralogy.

Results are expected in four to six weeks.
