Quaterra Resources Inc. (TSXV:QTA,AMEX:QMM) reported additional results from an ongoing infill drilling program at its entirely owned MacArthur copper project in the Yerington district of western Nevada.

The press release is quoted as saying:

Two holes encountered significant intervals of copper oxide mineralization. Hole QM-194, drilled at an angle of 45 degrees due east, intersected 120 feet averaging 0.24% TCu starting at the surface along the east edge of the pit. Hole QM-195, drilled at an angle of 45 degrees due west and located near the center of the pit, intercepted 190 feet of copper oxide mineralization averaging 0.44% TCu at a depth of 40 feet.

Quaterra Resources’ President and CEO, Thomas Patton, said,

“The program appears to be increasing the overall grade of the deposit by delineating higher grade areas that were missed by early vertical exploration holes.”
