PowerOre (TSXV:PORE) has unveiled the results of its second set of assays from its spring 2019 drill program at the Opemiska copper mine complex in Quebec’s Chibougamau District.
Highlights from the press release are as follows:
1.08 percent copper equivalent over 23.8 metres starting at 7.2 metres down hole in hole OPM-19-04 (Twinned Hole of Historical Falconbridge Hole S87)
0.32 percent copper equivalent over 130.6 metres starting at 9.0 metres down hole including 1.19 percent copper equivalent over 7.9 metres from 14.2 metres AND 0.78 percent copper equivalent over 4.0 metres from 106.0 metres in hole OPM-19-07 (Twinned Hole of Historical Falconbridge Hole S86)
0.90 percent copper equivalent over 12.6 metres starting at 2.0 metres down hole AND 1.76 percent copper equivalent over 5.5 metres downhole starting at 51.0 metres in hole OPM-19-06
Stephen Stewart, PowerOre CEO, commented:
“We continue to receive promising results with this second batch showing widely mineralized copper zones near surface. Mineralization in holes 4 and 6 are once again, high grade near surface holes that clearly shows the open pit potential at Opemiska. Hole 7 is encouraging as this is an exceptionally wide mineralized zone spanning 130 metres of 0.3 percent copper, and shows the potential remaining in the crown pillar at Vein #3. Most importantly is that we are seeing mineralization very close to the surface, which continues to be in line with our objective of reinterpreting the Opemiska Copper Complex as an open pit mine.”
