Europa Metals Ltd (LON:EUZ) has completed a new drillhole at the Toral lead-zinc-silver project in Spain.

The core will be tested for metallurgical purposes, and also be used to provide information that will go towards a future resource update.

Europa’s drilling campaign has now concluded.

“I am pleased to report that the first metallurgical samples, from hole TOD-023D, have now been dispatched for independent metallurgical testwork,” said Europa’s technical director Myles Campion.

“We believe that the results from this testwork will enable us to update flow sheets from the December 2018 scoping study and advance Toral closer to a pre-feasibility study. In addition, with samples from the ‘parent hole’ TOD-023 having now been sent for analysis, we look forward to preparing an updated resource model for Toral.”
