Moving loop geophysical surveys are continuing into deeper areas of interest within the area. The surveys will then move to the Tornado and Blizzard copper prospect areas.

The second RC drilling rig is onsite preparing to drill in the next few weeks. The planned drill program for the rest of the year includes more than 20,000 metres in RC and diamond drilling.

“It is very encouraging to report early success from the 2024 exploration program at Storm,” Aston Bay’s CEO, Thomas Ullrich stated in a news release. “Drilling of Moving Loop EM geophysical anomalies is proving to be very effective at discovering copper mineralization. This provides a powerful exploration advantage. With several new anomalies still to be drilled and deep potential only now being tested by this method, we are excited for the potential for continued discovery this season at Storm.”

Australian clean energy mining company American West Metals Ltd. (OTCQB:AWMLF) is the operator of the project and is solely responsible for funding the program

Located on Somerset Island, Nunavut, the property consists of 173 contiguous mining claims covering 2,192 square kilometres.

Aston Bay Holdings Ltd. is a Canadian mineral exploration company exploring high-grade copper and gold deposits in Virginia and Nunavut.

Aston Bay Holdings Ltd. (TSXV:BAY) opened trading at $0.14 per share, up 366.67 per cent since last year.
