Emerita Resources Corp. (EMO:TSX.V; EMOTF:OTCMKTS; LLJ:FSE) released news Friday morning, September 30, 2022, from this year’s drilling at its fully-permitted La Romanera deposit at its 100%-owned Iberian Belt West project (IBW).

Emerita had intersected 14.0m  grading 4.3% Cu included within 26.8m grading 2.6% Cu at its La Romanera deposit. This increases the number of drills at IBW project to 13.

It centers around traditional base metals (zinc and copper) and precious metals (silver and gold).

According to the company, Emerita has planned a 70,000-meter (70,000m) drill program to be completed by year-end at the La Romanera deposit, designed to expand the resource.

On September 12, 2022, we covered Holes LR009, LR013, and LR015 drilled at its Romanera project.

At that time, Research Capital Corp. analyst Adam Schatzker said he continued “to be impressed by the drill results at Romanera.”

To Schatzker, “it certainly [appeared] that Romanera could prove to be a significant precious metals deposit.”

During that report, Schatzker gave Emerita a Speculative Buy rating and a target price of CA$3.75. That is around a 331% increase from the current stock price of around CA$0.87.

Friday, Emerita announced assay results from two drill holes (LR019 and LR023) at the La Romanera deposit. It had intersected 14.0m grading 4.3% copper (Cu) included within 26.8m grading 2.6% Cu at its La Romanera deposit.
