Copper

Aranjin Resources Ltd. (TSXV: ARJN) (the "Company" or "Aranjin Resources") is very pleased to announce results from the recent drilling at the Sharga Copper Project ("Sharga" or "Project").

Highlights:

  • First drilling program completed with results now received for all drill holes and Phase 2 follow up drilling planned.

  • Highly encouraging early results from six initial drill holes with a best result of 15.4 meters at 1.33% Copper and 0.94g.t Gold.

  • Wide zones of VMS style (massive to semi massive sulphides) mineralization up to 100 meters in width, indicating a substantial mineralized system has been discovered at Sharga.

  • Mineralised zones intersected in drilling are open along strike and at depth and this is further confirmed by preliminary dipole-dipole IP geophysics that tested and confirmed that the mineralisation intersected in drilling is open and remains untested by drilling.

The Company has successfully drilled six diamond core drill holes for a total of 2,211 meters at the East Prospect with a best result of 15.4 meters at 1.33% Copper and 0.94g.t Gold. These early results successfully demonstrate the discovery of a substantial VMS style base metal system with high grade copper and gold at Sharga. This is very early and only a tiny fraction of the targets on the project have been drill tested. While this drill campaign was short it supports the Company's initial view that the Sharga Copper Project has strong potential for the discovery of high-grade copper gold deposits. The Phase 2 drilling program will cover a wider area and will include further drilling at the East Prospect and an additional five target areas that the company has been working on. This program is expected to commence early in 2022.

Better Drilling results included:

SH-2:

  • 54.1 meters at 0.27% Copper and 0.35g/t Gold, including 7.7 meters at 1.04g/t Gold and 2.9% Zinc

SH-3:

  • 9 meters at 0.64% Copper and 0.31g/t Gold including 1.9 meters at 2.25% Copper
  • 5.15 meters at 1.73% Copper and 0.98g/t Gold including 1 meters at 4.51% Copper and 2.33g/t Gold and 100 g/t Silver

SH-5:

  • 37.9 meters at 0.27% Copper and 0.50 g/t Gold

SH-6:

  • 15.3 meters at 0.13% Copper and 1.05g/t Gold
  • 15.4 meters at 1.33% Copper and 0.94g.t Gold, including 9 meters of 2.11% Copper and 1.02g/t Gold
  • 16 meters at 0.52% Copper and 0.86 g/t Gold

Summary of the Drill Results:

A total of five prospects were identified as a consequence of the ASTER satellite image processing and geological mapping, in the license named North, Aguit, Khar Zurai, West, and East. Strongly silicified, reddish-brown limonite-hematite rich alteration zones "gossans" were mapped at all the prospects in variable sizes and are associated with schistose textured acidic volcanic rocks as well as elevated base metals and gold.

A total of six diamond drillholes with a total of 2,211 meters were completed at the East prospect. Over 100 meter thick, pyrite dominated, massive sulfide layers were intersected in the holes demonstrating a substantial mineralized VMS system. The best intercept was achieved in the last hole drilled and included 15.4m at 1.33% Copper and 0.94g/t Gold from 315.6m in drillhole SH-6 and included 9m at 2.11% Copper and 1.02g/t Gold from 322m.

The company has completed preliminary dipole-dipole IP test survey across the East and North Prospects and confirmed that the mineralization intersected in drilling is open along the strike and at depth. Additional IP and ground magnetic geophysics and soil and rock chip geochemistry will be undertaken in the coming months.

Hudbay Receives Favourable U.S. District Court Ruling on Copper World

Hudbay Minerals Inc. ("Hudbay" or the "company") ( TSX, NYSE: HBM) received a favourable decision from the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona ("District Court") relating to the company's Copper World project in Arizona. The District Court ruled in favour of Hudbay on all issues, including that Copper World and Rosemont are not connected under the National Environmental Policy Act ("NEPA") and, therefore, that the Army Corps of Engineers ("ACOE") does not have an obligation to include Copper World as part of its NEPA review of Rosemont. The District Court also granted Hudbay's motion to dismiss the Copper World preliminary injunction request filed by the plaintiffs in the two lawsuits challenging the Section 404 Clean Water Act permit for Rosemont on the basis that the lawsuits are moot after the company surrendered its 404 permit back to the ACOE in April 2022. The ACOE has never determined that there are jurisdictional waters of the U.S. on the Copper World site and Hudbay has independently concluded through its own scientific analysis that there are no such waters in the area.

In April 2022, the company commenced early site works at Copper World with initial grading and clearing activities continuing at site. The company also continues exploration and technical work at site with seven drill rigs conducting infill drilling and supporting future feasibility studies.

VIDEO — Joe Mazumdar: Copper is the Commodity of the Decade, Ways to Get Exposure

Joe Mazumdar: Copper is the Commodity of the Decade, Ways to Get Exposureyoutu.be

Investors often focus on the commodities of the moment, but which have potential over the next decade?

Speaking to the Investing News Network at the recent Vancouver Resource Investment Conference (VRIC), Joe Mazumdar, editor of Exploration Insights, said copper is his pick.

"Some of it's battery metal exposure, it's construction," he said. "But also on the supply side, the lack of development projects and the higher permitting risk combined with more geopolitical risk in two of the major producers, Chile and Peru. They might have issues with production into a market (where) demand might grow."
