Terra Firma Resources has received high-grade copper and silver mineralisation from the first reconnaissance sample results of the initial exploration programme at Malawa property in South Sulawesi, Indonesia.

The field exploration programme identified high-grade copper mineralisation and good grades of silver contained within porphyry copper mineralisation and an associated peripheral copper (lead-zinc) skarn mineralisation.

The sampling was done by taking rock chips and a total of 19 samples were collected along partially exposed bedrock, mainly along creeks.

The firm has observed numerous occurrences of copper gossans within the alteration zones associated with sheared and intensely fractured rocks.

The firm will soon commence the second phase of the exploration programme on the Malawa property, which will consist of trenching, sampling and test pits.
