New World Resources Limited (ASX: NWC) - High Grade Copper Story - Antler Project

Coffee with Samso Episode 189 is with Mike Haynes, Managing Director and CEO of New World Resources Limited (ASX:NWC).

In our previous conversation with New World Resources Limited (ASX:NWC) the focus was on getting mining happening. Today the mining process is in place. While they are currently undergoing necessary procedures, they are also actively pursuing highly promising exploration targets.

There is a scarcity of stories on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) that revolve around copper, especially high-grade copper. The Antler project, within the copper mineral exploration industry, is widely regarded as a technically robust project. It can now be better classified as a near-producer story as the company progresses into the mine planning stage.

Those readers who have watched the earlier Coffee with Samso episode of Mike Haynes introducing the Antler project would be familiar with the high-grade nature of the copper story in 2021 and 2022 (see below). Samso has been showcasing the New World Resources Limited story since March 2021.

I have full confidence that the Antler project of New World Resources would successfully pass a rigorous due diligence process. The abundance of technical information and the untapped potential of the resource are undeniable. The only obstacles that remain are the mining process and the stability of the copper price.

In this episode, Mike brings to the attention of the Samso community the Antler project and the exciting prospects of other high-grade copper projects in their portfolio.

Mike Haynes provides an overview of the company's upcoming plans, highlighting the exploration targets within the Antler project and the new Javelin project located approximately 75km south-east from Antler.

The Javelin VMS project has shown promising exploration results thus far, prompting New World Resource's strong interest in commencing work. Notably, it exhibits robust multi-element anomalies that were defined in May 2023. Furthermore, the project's northern third, which was completed in July 2023, reveals exceptional IP anomalies, further substantiating the project's significance.

According to Mike, the project has identified both shallow VMS and deeper 1.2km x 1.0km porphyry copper targets. New World Resources plans to initiate a drilling program in Q4 of 2023.

Samso's Thoughts

As mentioned earlier, New World Resources is a highly recommended company to include in your watchlist for thorough research. The current bearish sentiment in the market has depressed equity prices in the small-cap sector, which presents a hidden opportunity for new investors in New World Resources.

For existing shareholders, this may be a favourable time to consider averaging down their investments. I recall my Coffee with Samso with Rick Rule (Commodities and Equities: Advice from Rick Rule - Episode 70) , where he shared the story of his investment in Paladin Energy Limited (35:54 Rick and Paladin - The story of Investing in Mineral Explorers). Despite the stock price dropping to 1c, he remained confident in the project's quality, the company's management, and the factual truth behind it.

If you have watched all the episodes of Coffee with Samso featuring Mike Haynes, you would have noticed the consistent nature of the conversations. Antler stands out in the industry due to its rare technical expertise. When considering technical attributes and potential, the Golden Grove VMS deposit in Western Australia serves as a suitable comparison for Antler.

If you are interested in learning more about New World Resources, please don't hesitate to send me an email. I will gladly forward it to Mike Haynes. I highly encourage engaging in a dialogue with the management team, as they are more than willing to take the time to address any queries you may have.
