Stavely Minerals Limited (ASX:SVY) is a mineral exploration company targeting high-grade structurally controlled copper-gold mineralisation as well as porphyry mineralisation at the Stavely Project, in western Victoria.

In September 2019, Stavely Minerals made a copper-gold-silver discovery at the Cayley Lode at the Thursday’s Gossan prospect with grades of up to 40% copper within a 32m wide high-grade zone at 5.88% Cu, 1.00g/t Au and 58g/t Ag from 62m. The current mineral resource is 9.3Mt at 1.2% Cu, 0.23g/t Au and 7.1g/t Ag.

The Company is currently looking to drill test other prospective positions and extend the Lode-style mineralisation while also targeting a causative porphyry at depth.
