Orion Minerals revealed high-grade copper discoveries at its Okiep Copper Project in South Africa's Northern Cape.

Findings include drill hole OFMED153, which yielded 49m at 4.89% copper and a zone of 10.23m at 12.47% copper.

The virgin discovery at Flat Mine East features a wide, high-grade massive sulphide zone, which is set to play a pivotal role in Orion's early production plans.

Orion plans a 5,800m diamond drilling program across Flat Mine East, South, and North to verify historical results and facilitate further metallurgical testing.
