Happy Creek Minerals Ltd. (TSXV:HPY) released metallurgy and mineralogy results from the Rateria Property in BC. Zone 1 returned 39.6% copper and 398.8 g/t silver in concentrate at the property.
As quoted in the press release:
A bulk sample was prepared by the lab and returned head grade assays ranging from 0.21 to 0.25% copper. Met-Solve performed mineralogy and metallurgy tests producing a concentrate product containing 39.6% copper and 398.8 g/t silver.
Happy Creek Minerals Ltd. President and CEO, David Blann said:
This is an excellent concentrate product thought to be comparable to that at Highland Valley. It provides information to assist with an appropriate cutoff grade, and with the geology which has similarities to the deposits currently in production to the north. The mineralization in Zone 1 is open in extent beyond 400 metres below surface and this area is thought to host potential for another large scale deposit. We anticipate building upon our discoveries and continuing exploration for additional quality deposits in this highly prospective district.
