Metalla also highlighted that recent drilling in the Harrier system has continued to return encouraging results, demonstrating a sustained growth opportunity down dip and in the southern extensions. New drilling has also returned high-grade mineralization outside of the existing mineral reserves, and also demonstrated the continuity of the Harrier structure for 400 meters down plunge while remaining open at depth with an intercept of 8.1 g/t gold over 4.5 meters.

Metalla aims to provide shareholders with leveraged precious metal exposure by acquiring royalties and streams and increase its share value by “accumulating a diversified portfolio of royalties and streams with attractive returns”.
