Superior Copper (TSXV:SPC) reported the latest drill results from the summer program at its Superior project in Ontario. Visible copper sulphide mineralization was reported for Diamond drill hole SPC-14-07, which also returned anamolous copper over a width of 57.12 meters.
Superior Copper (TSXV:SPC) reported the latest drill results from the summer program at its Superior project in Ontario. Visible copper sulphide mineralization was reported for Diamond drill hole SPC-14-07, which also returned anomalous copper over a width of 57.12 meters.
As quoted in the press release:
Diamond drill hole SPC-14-08 was targeted to test a 2.5km long low resistivity ZTEM trend 600m to the northwest of SPC-14-06 that intersected over 80m of low grade mineralization. (see the Company’s Press Release dated November 10, 2014). SPC-14-08 intersected three intervals that returned over 1% copper occurring between 852.42m and 945.55m depth. The most significant intersection was 1.18% copper, 0.93gpt silver, and 0.22 gpt gold over 8.27m including 16.40% copper, 11.20 gpt silver, and 3.11 gpt gold over 0.50m. Mineralization occurred as fracture controlled chalcopyrite with minor bornite in mafic volcanics and as semi-massive to massive chalcopyrite in an intensely silicified host rock. Detailed results can be found in Table 1.
Superior Copper CEO, John Tait, said:
We are continually impressed with the occurrence of copper minerals no matter what corner of this large land package we drill. Currently our geologists are compiling all the drill data from the last drill program, interpreting their findings and prioritizing drill targets for the New Year. There are also several regional targets we have not drilled from our Phase One Program.
