The President and CEO of the company said that they continue to see narrow zones of high-grade copper and cobalt mineralization overlain by broader zones of lower grade mineralization at Bornite.
Trilogy Metals (TSX,NYSE American:TMQ) has announced the first set of high-grade copper and cobalt assay results from this summer’s exploration diamond drilling program at the Bornite project, a part of the company’s Upper Kobuk mineral projects located in the Ambler mining district of Northwest Alaska.
According to the release sample results from the four holes comprise approximately 3,871 meters from the recently completed 10,123 meter drill campaign. All four drill holes contain copper mineralization and were designed as infill holes to the 300 to 400 meter step-out holes drilled by the company’s previous round of drilling completed in 2017.
President and CEO of Trilogy Metals, Rick Van Nieuwenhuyse said:
“We continue to see narrow zones of high-grade copper and cobalt mineralization overlain by broader zones of lower grade mineralization at Bornite. The continuity of the mineralized envelop continues to impress. With another eight holes of results due to come out over the next several weeks, we will continue to release results as they become available. After all results are in, we expect to complete an updated resource estimate at Bornite in the first half of next year.”
