Announcement summary: American West Metals Limited (American West or the Company) (ASX: AW1) is pleased to announce significant assay results from exploration drilling at the West Desert Project in Utah (West Desert or the Project). Exploration drill hole WD22-19 was designed to test a large magnetitic anomaly which is centered approximately 250m to the south-west of the existing West Desert Deposit (Figure 4), and is the first exploration drill hole to be completed by AW1 at the West Desert Project. The drill hole has intersected high-grade zinc and copper sulphides within a broad lower-grade mineralised envelope. The style of mineralisation and host rock package is similar to that of the Deep Zone of the West Desert Deposit. The observations from WD22-19 suggest that the drill hole may have hit the margin of another significant ore system, which likely lies to the north and closer toward the interpreted porphyry contact (Figures 3 & 4). The WD22-19 discovery has confirmed the potential for further significant resources to the west of the West Desert Deposit, and the prospective porphyry/skarn contact now has intersections of high-grade zinc and copper along 1.6km of strike. This area remains underexplored and offers an excellent opportunity to further increase the scale of the resource footprint at the Project
