Tasca plans to both continue to drill laterally and to depth to increase the main deposit and to systematically test the satellite zones.
Tasca Resources (TSXV:TAC) has reported the results of the winter 2018 diamond drilling program at its Poplar copper property, southwest of Houston, British Columbia, Canada.
As highlighted in the press release:
- 18-PC-126 was mineralized from top of bedrock to full depth, averaging 0.365 percent copper, 0.015 percent molybdenum, 0.145 grams per tonne (g/t) gold and 2.31 g/t silver over 380.97 metres. The last 30.17 metres contained the strongest mineralization: 0.554 percent copper, 0.027 percent molybdenum, 0.104 g/t gold and 4.44 g/t silver; indicating the historic IP conclusion of mineralization continuing to depth appears valid.
- 18-PC-127 was mineralized from top of bedrock to full depth, averaging 0.421 percent copper, 0.013 percent molybdenum, 0.105 g/t gold and 2.63 g/t silver over 264.86 metres, including a 27 metre interval averaging 0.643 percent copper, 0.030 percent molybdenum, 0.146 g/t gold and 2.62 g/t silver.
- 18-PC-127 intersected 0.330 percent copper, 0.002 percent molybdenum, 0.118 g/t gold and 3.46 g/t silver over 151.10 metres between 122.8 metres and 273.9 metres
- Mineralization consists of both dissemination pyrite and chalcopyrite and stockwork vein to veinlet pyrite, chalcopyrite and molybdenite.
As quoted in the press release:
These results further indicate the potential to significantly expand the area of known mineralization at Poplar Property. Based on the assays above an aggressive and extensive drill programme will be designed to continue to expand the size of the known deposit. Tasca plans to both continue to drill laterally and to depth to increase the main deposit and to systematically test the satellite zones. A permit for further drilling is in place.
