Announcement summary: Centaurus Metals (ASX Code: CTM) is pleased to report outstanding new drill results from ongoing resource growth and development drilling at its 100%-owned Jaguar Nickel Sulphide Project in the Carajás Mineral Province of northern Brazil. The results are expected to contribute to an increase in the global Mineral Resource Estimate (MRE), due for delivery at the end of September, as well as to upgrade more of the Jaguar MRE into the higher-confidence Measured and Indicated categories in advance of Ore Reserve estimation as part of the DFS. While drilling has so far been focused on the in-fill program that is required for the upgrade and development of the Jaguar Resource, 2-3 rigs have been designated to specifically target resource growth by undertaking step-out drilling at the Onça Preta and Jaguar South Deposits. The current base of both the Onça Preta and Jaguar South Deposits has now been extended well below the base of the underground operations identified in the May 2021 Jaguar Project Scoping Study, which was already restricted by the base of the March 2021 MRE. Any new resource tonnes generated by step-out drilling are therefore expected to result in growth of the overall MRE and, in time, contribute to future underground operations. Onça Preta The December 2021 Mineral Resource Estimate (MRE) expanded the Onça Preta Deposit to 5.2Mt at 1.52% Ni for more than 78kt of contained nickel. Onça Preta is the highest-grade deposit at the Jaguar Project.
