Copper


Canadian Copper Inc. ("Canadian Copper" or the "Company") (CSE: CCI) is pleased to announce positive exploration results from its next thirteen holes at Chester Copper Project ("Chester") located in the Bathurst Mining Camp, New Brunswick, Canada.

"We are pleased with the results of Phase Two drilling at the Chester Central and East Zones. These two areas previously did not contribute to the historical Mineral Resource Estimate ("MRE") at Chester. The Phase Two program has established Central and East zone grade and spatial continuity, and as a result, these resources will be incorporated into the updated MRE. The Chester historic geologic model continues to deliver within expectations." Simon Quick, CEO of Canadian Copper.

Highlights of Phase Two Program:

  • Hole C21-14: 1.44 % copper over 11.25 meters in a continuous mineralized envelope grading 0.69% copper over 25.7 meters.
  • Hole C21-15: 2.48% over 2 meters in a continuous mineralized envelope grading 0.92% copper from 13 meters.
  • Precious metals: All holes within the massive sulphide zones intersected anomalous gold and silver mineralization. (See Table 1 for drilling results).

Similar to the first phase of drilling at Chester (https://canadiancopper.com/¬¬canadian-copper-begins-active-trading-and-provides-company-update/), the program successfully met the designed objectives of:

  1. Validate historical resource and geologic model for the three primary zones, Central, East, and West Zone (Copper Stringer), which are all located near surface.
  2. Outline additional resources in existing gaps between the Central and East Zone.
  3. Further explore for the presence of gold and silver mineralization near surface within the gossanous Central and East zones.

Each of the above stated objectives were met by the Phase Two program. All thirteen drill holes intersected the near-surface target massive sulphide mineralization validating the historical geologic model. Also, portions of the Chester historical resource estimate consisting of dated drilling (pre-1960's) may now be included into the upcoming MRE because of new data collected. Additionally, the continuous presence of silver and gold across the resource is a positive development, bringing potential additional value to the ore body.

About the Chester Copper Project

The Chester copper deposit ("Chester") is a volcanogenic massive sulphide ("VMS") resource containing three (3) zones; the Central Zone (massive Sulphide), the East Zone (massive sulphide), and the West Zone (Copper Stringer), which are all located near surface as shown in Figure 3. Previous mining development in 1974 included a 470-meter decline targeting the West Zone and produced 30,000 tonnes of bulk samples grading +2.0% copper (Geoscience Canada, McCutcheon, 2020). No other development has occurred on the property.

Canadian Copper is not treating the "historical resources estimate" as a "current resources estimate" or "mineral reserves", as it has not taken steps to identify what work needs to be done to verify, upgrade or re-classify the "historical resources estimate" using a qualified person from Puma or independent third party.

About the Bathurst Mining Camp

The Company is focused on the prolific Bathurst Mining Camp of New Brunswick, Canada. This region is a world class mining district with thirteen former mining operations and hosts more than forty-five known volcanogenic massive sulphide ("VMS") deposits. Our flagship Chester Project is 75 km south of the renowned Brunswick #12 mine that operated for 5 decades. New Brunswick has the modern infrastructure needed for mineral exploration and mine development coupled with a clear and well-established regulatory environment.

Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC)

Phase 1 drilling samples were bagged, sealed by Geominex and sent to the facility of ALS CHEMEX in Moncton, New Brunswick where each sample is dried, crushed, and pulped. The samples were crushed to 70% less than 2mm, riffle split off 1kg, pulverise split to better than 85% passing 75 microns (Prep-31B). A 30-gram subsplit from the resulting pulp was then subjected to a fire assay (Au-ICP21). Rock sample ICP results with gold >1g/t were subjected to a metallic screening (Au-SCR24) 1kg pulp screened to 100 microns.

About Canadian Copper Inc.
