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”).

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”.
