Happy Creek Minerals Ltd. (TSXV:HPY) announced additional drill results from its on-going exploration of the Rateria property, Highland Valley district, British Columbia, Canada.
As quoted from the press release:
New results from testing the southern extent of Zone 1 with drill hole R11-13 are 47.5 metres of 0.42% copper, 2.3 g/t (grams per tonne) silver within an overall interval of 82.5 metres containing 0.26% copper and 1.0 g/t silver, starting at 282.5 metres. R11-13 has extended copper mineralization by 125 metres to the south of R11-10 (Refer to News Release dated September 19th, 2011). Zone 1 is now approximately one kilometre in length and remains open in extent. As in R11-10, significant copper grade can occur beneath previous shallow holes and indicates potential for expanding the size of Zone 1 at depth.
Happy Creek President and CEO, David Blann, said:
“R11-13 has extended Zone 1 to one kilometre with continuous copper mineralization and it remains open in extent in several directions. In addition to expanding the limits of Zone 1, continuous drill testing of other targets is an exciting part of our exploration. Having the right geology in a prolific mining district has led us to the discovery of two significant new copper zones and we look forward to testing other quality targets that we have identified.”
