Artemis said that it has submitted 171 samples for assays and will wait for the laboratory results before it begins planning the next stage of the programme.

The Carlow Castle Project is located 10 kilometres south-west of Roebourne and currently hosts a JORC (2012) Inferred Mineral Resource of 418,000 tonnes at 3.0 g/t Au and 0.6% Cu, for total contained metal of 40,000 ounces of Au, and 2,500 tonnes of Cu.

The company believes there is a potential to increase the size of the current mineral resource with a number of structures identified with shafts and recent prospector activity that have been drilled.
