The Carnaby Resources Ltd (ASX: CNB) share price is flying higher in morning trade. It’s up 14% after leaping more than 27% higher in the early minutes after the opening bell.

Below we look at the drill results that look the be driving ASX investor interest.

What drill results did Carnaby announce?

The Carnaby Resources share price is rocketing after the company reported “stunning drill results“. The results are from the exploration campaign at its Greater Duchess Copper Gold Project in Mt Isa, Queensland.

The results come from both reverse circulation and diamond drilling.

One of the drill holes intersected the widest high-grade intercept Carnaby has discovered to date. Results were 68 metres at 2.4% copper, 0.4 grams per tonne of gold from 40 metres, including 42m @ 3.6% copper, 0.5 g/t gold from 63m.

The ASX resource explorer said it has now intersected “wide, high-grade and very shallow” copper-gold mineralisation across a zone of more than 300 metres strike length that remains open.

Atop this, it reported receiving a number of other new results and visual intersections. Those include a 30-metre zone of very strong copper sulphides.

On the results that look to be lifting the Carnaby Resources share price today, Carnaby managing director Rob Watkins said:

These stunning drill results clearly demonstrate the resource and development potential of the Greater Duchess Copper Gold Project. We are discovering and building a pipeline of exceptional and highly desirable copper gold deposits whose intrinsic value will only grow over time as we define and grow the maiden resource and move towards a development timetable.

Drilling at the project continues with two dedicated drill rigs on site.
