Technology Minerals provides exploration update at its Aramo Cu-Co-Ni project

Technology Minerals Plc, the first listed UK company focused on creating a sustainable circular economy for battery metals, has announced initial results from a lithogeochemical programme and targeting studies at its 100%-owned Aramo Copper-Cobalt-Nickel (Cu-Co-Ni) project in Asturias, NW Spain.


  • Grab sampling across multiple mineralised veins and alteration zones have confirmed the style and tenor of mineralisation and have reported assays ranging up to 1% – 28% copper, 0.1 – 1.88% cobalt and 0.1 – 1.68% nickel. 
  • Lithogeochemical sampling was completed within four accessible working levels at the historic Aramo Cu-Co-Ni mine in Asturias.
  • A total of 205 rock samples have been collected and analysed at ALS Laboratories, Loughrea, Ireland.
  • This work has formed the basis of a broad characterisation study of extensive zones of alteration and mineralisation which are present and clearly observed within parts of Levels three and four of the mine.
  • A 3D laser survey has also been completed at the Aramo Mine on the historical Levels three and four. This will provide a 3D model framework of the mine workings and allow for systematic and more intensive underground mapping and sampling on these levels.
  • This work will lead to a better understanding of the geological and mineralogical model at Aramo, and in turn form the basis of 3D visual planning for diamond drilling targeting unmined mineralisation as well as extensions to the main zones.
  • Mine archive searches have produced targeting data associated with areas outside of the Aramo mine on the St. Patrick Licence as well as targets associated with several other of the company’s pending licence applications.

Alex Stanbury, Chief Executive Officer of Technology Minerals, said:

“We are pleased the initial results from our sampling survey at the historic Aramo mine within the St. Patrick licence has confirmed high grade Cu-Co-Ni mineralisation. In the coming months we plan to expand our exploration campaign which will help us continue to gain a better understanding the full potential of the project. The Asturmet project forms part of our wider strategy to move forward and advance multiple exploration campaigns across our portfolio of mineral resource projects focused on cobalt, copper, nickel, manganese, and lithium.”
