Summit Minerals Limited (ASX: SUM, “Summit” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the commencement of a maiden field program at the prospective Ahmed Antimony Project in Morocco (“Ahmed”, “Project”).

The maiden field program includes stream sediment sampling, geological mapping, and rock chip sampling. It is designed to map the primary structural control on, and determine the prospective extents of mineralisation at Ahmed, helping to refine the Company’s drill targets and provide the framework within which more expansive exploration will develop. The field teams’ immediate focus is on the known mineralisation identified through the historical trenches and workings within the Project area.

The Company’s Moroccan partner, Ashgill Morocco, will manage the field program with input from Summit’s technical team.

Summit’s Managing Director, Jonathan King, commented:

“I’m very pleased to get boots on the ground to kick off our maiden field program in Morocco. Our team is very much focused on identifying and confirming the key trends and extensions to the known mineralisation at Ahmed. The results from this work will lead to the development of a systematic exploration plan for the Project, including drilling, which is exciting”.
