Empire Mining Sampling Returns Significant Copper-Gold Anomaly

- September 26th, 2011

Empire Mining Corporation (CVE:EPC) has identified a continuous copper-gold anomalous zone to the Southwest Zone of the Demirtepe wollastonite-hosted copper-gold-silver and molybdenum project in Turkey.

Empire Mining Corporation (TSXV:EPC) has identified a continuous copper-gold anomalous zone to the Southwest Zone of the Demirtepe wollastonite-hosted copper-gold-silver and molybdenum project in Turkey.

The press release is quoted as saying:

The Southwest Zone is interpreted as having formed the basement below the Demirtepe Main Zone deposit which then became detached. This view is supported by signs of epithermal style quartz with chalcopyrite and pyrite, so a higher temperature equivalent. The identification of a basal detachment fault at the bottom of the Main Zone led to the discovery of the Southwest Zone.

 

Mapping has been extended to encompass the extension areas of the Southwest Zone and an IP/resistivity survey is planned to start in a few days to identify the possible location of the porphyry system believed to be the driver for the skarn-hosted mineralisation at Demirtepe. The next phase of drilling at Demirtepe is planned to commence in the fall and will be focused on the Southwest Zone.
