Copper Hill: Oxide Drilling – Encouraging Results
48 metres at 1.0 g/t gold, 22 metres at 3.07 g/t gold, 37 metres at 1.8g/t gold
12 metres at 1.82% copper, 37 metres at 1.44% copper, 27 metres at 1.92% copper
The first pass oxide resource drilling program has been completed with 119 Reverse Circulation holes for 5990 metres. This program has defined, much more closely, the near surface oxide and transition zone copper and gold mineralisation which will be available for early exploitation.
The current metallurgical test work program will be expanded to include this material and determine what maximum recoveries will be achievable and which processing methods will be used.
The tables below set out the best intervals and the following figures show the drill hole locations and grade x thickness contour plans for copper and gold.
