Tempest Minerals (TEM) has completed downhole electromagnetic (DHEM) surveys for two holes drilled within the Orion target at its Meleya project in WA.

These are the only two drill holes to be completed along the Meleya belt, which stretches for over 50 kilometres.

The survey work defined upper and lower zones of elevated magnetites and sulphides and confirmed multiple stratigraphic positions along the Meleya belt.

The company said the results had significantly elevated the prospectivity of the target and advanced its understanding of mineralisation in the area.

It noted that while relatively small-scale electromagnetic responses have been modelled, these coincided with logged mineralised zones and geological boundaries, providing definitions for targets across the entire project.

As such, the company said it would use these results to guide its near-term drilling campaigns.

Furthermore, Tempest is continuing regional exploration work in the project area, including further geophysical surveys, petrographic analyses, geochemical sampling and project-wide drilling.

Shares in Tempest Minerals last traded at 3.9 cents on September 7.
