Camino Corp. (TSXV:COR) (OTC PINK:CAMZF) (WKN:A116E1) ('Camino' or the 'Company') is pleased to announce the commencement of a geophysics campaign at its Los Chapitos copper project consisting of 258 line km of Magnetic Vector Inversion Modelling ('Magnetic Survey' or the 'Survey'). The Survey is targeting locations of previously reported sampling of artisanal workings (see news release April 13, 2021) that returned up to 5.12% copper (Cu) and 9.33 gt gold (Au), with the vein samples measuring 0.3 to 0.6 metres (m). This area, known as Lidia, is a large 3 km by 4 km area that is geochemically anomalous for high-grade copper and gold, with 238 samples taken in 201819 averaging 0.78 % Cu, and up to 23% Cu and 11 gt Au. The Survey is wide ranging and will also cover the large alterations zones at the Lourdes and Condori areas, with extensions to the Lagunillas fault and Diva West. The Magnetic Survey will help Camino identify subsurface structure and, potentially, the continuity and dissemination of copper and gold mineralization at depth

'Our geophysics campaign is aimed at extending mineralization 4 to 5 km to the north of previously drilled areas. We will be surveying zones of high-grade copper and gold sampled in artisanal workings, and also areas with massive alteration zones. The massive alteration zones are co-incident with oxidized copper outcrops, so could provide the fluid mechanism for significantly more disseminated copper mineralization,' said Jay Chmelauskas, Camino's CEO. 'The Magnetic Survey and results will be completed in July to guide the drilling campaign at Los Chapitos that will start in August.'

Camino's Chief Geologist Jose Bassan said, 'our geological modelling includes lithology and alteration zonation and cross cutting features that is focused on developing a predictive discovery model to apply across our extensive Los Chapitos copper property. The geophysical study covers new areas of copper mineralization, beyond our current drilling, and complements the geological models being developed by Camino's geological team.'

Figure 1. Long Section of Diva Trend with Historic Magnetic Anomalies

The work carried out by Arce Geophysics in 2016-2018 in the Adriana zone showed a spatial correlation between the high magnetic anomalies and the mineralized intercepts of the Adriana and Carlota bodies. The magnetometric anomalies show the lineament of the Diva trend copper oxide mineralization and its relationship with some of the intrusive dioritic and monzonitic lithologies. Anomalies are shown next to previous successful drilling at Adriana with copper mineralization up to 300 m depth (see news release January 19, 2021) and towards the south at Maria and Pilar.

Figure 2. Proposed Geophysical Survey Extension July 2021

The hatched area shown in Figure 2 is the location of the Magnetic Survey underway that covers the Lourdes-Condori-Lidia areas and other areas. The ground magnetometry will trend SW-NE profiles with 100 metre line spacing that will include 69 profiles with a total of 257.8 line km. The method used will be Magnetization Vector Inversion (MVI) modelling that has previously shown good correlation with magnetic bodies to reveal structures and responses of magnetic changes at depth. The lines will have a 100 metre overlap with the previous magnetometry surveys conducted in 2016-2018. The data will be levelled and re-modelled to unify results from all surveys in this trend from 2016-2018 with the new results from 2021. Magnetization Vector Inversion (MVI) is a 3D inversion technique that inverts for both amplitude and direction of the magnetization and produces more geologically reasonable results in areas with complex magnetic features.

Ero Copper announces discovery of nickel sulphide system in the Curaçá Valley; intercepts 16.5 meters grading 1.22% nickel, including 3.8 meters grading 3.60% nickel

Ero Copper Corp. (TSX: ERO, NYSE: ERO) ("Ero" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the discovery of a regional nickel sulphide system within the Curaçá Valley over an initial strike length of five kilometers. The system remains open in all directions and is highlighted by multiple surface expressions of nickel mineralization. Results from first-pass drilling conducted on two of the identified zones along the currently interpreted northeast and southwest boundaries of the system are highlighted by:

  • VB Zone
    • VB-17: 16.5 meters at 1.22% Ni, 0.17% Cu and 0.03% Co (1.37% NiEq), including 3.8 meters at 3.60% Ni, 0.22% Cu and 0.09% Co (3.92% NiEq)
      • Interval includes 1.5 meters of massive-sulphide textures (~80% sulphides) grading 6.59% Ni, 0.26% Cu and 0.17% Co (7.11% NiEq)
    • VB-25: 30.4 meters at 0.63% Ni, 0.12% Cu, 0.02% Co (0.72% NiEq), including 5.1 meters at 2.06% Ni, 0.25% Cu, 0.05% Co (2.28% NiEq)
      • Interval includes 1.4 meters of massive-sulphide textures (~60% sulphides) grading 4.94% Ni, 0.14% Cu, 0.12% Co (5.30% NiEq)
  • Lazaro ("LZ") Zone
    • LZ-03: 24.1 meters at 0.81% Ni, 0.18% Cu and 0.04% Co (0.97% NiEq), including 13.0 meters at 1.11% Ni, 0.25% Cu and 0.05% Co (1.33% NiEq)
    • LZ-06: 22.5 meters at 0.84% Ni, 0.15% Cu and 0.05% Co (1.02% NiEq), including 8.0 meters at 1.34% Ni, 0.25% Cu and 0.07% Co (1.61% NiEq)
    • LZ-07: 17.7 meters at 0.93% Ni, 0.21% Cu and 0.05% Co (1.14% NiEq), including 5.0 meters at 1.15% Ni, 0.20% Cu and 0.06% Co (1.38% NiEq)

The newly discovered nickel system, known as the "Umburana System", is located approximately 20 kilometers from the Company's existing Caraíba processing facilities. The system was discovered using new detailed field mapping and soil geochemistry collected during the Company's 2021 and 2022 exploration programs in conjunction with the Company's airborne electromagnetic ("AEM") survey. First-pass drilling comprised of 48 drill holes initially testing where ultramafic rocks have been mapped at surface. The ongoing program has identified large intervals of disseminated and interstitial nickel sulphides as well as zones of high-grade semi-massive (containing approximately 30% to 60% sulphides) and massive sulphides (containing approximately 60% to 80% sulphides), with massive sulphide intercepts up to 1.5 meters in thickness grading up to 6.59% nickel (7.11% NiEq). Nickel mineralization outcrops at surface, is evident in trenches and remains open down-plunge. Maximum depth of drilling to date is approximately 300 meters below surface. There are four exploration drill rigs currently operating on the system.

VIDEO: Cyprium Metals Ltd MD Barry Cahill on the Nifty Copper Project Restart Update

Perth, Australia (ABN Newswire) - Cyprium Metals Limited (ASX:CYM) has continued to progress the refurbishment of the project whilst the Company is conducting a finance process for the restart the operation.


- Majority of the operational readiness and environmental clean-up activities have now been completed

- To reduce operational expenditure whilst maintaining the Nifty site in good order, workforce has been temporarily downsized until the finance process is complete

- Advanced discussions are continuing with debt financiers, who are undertaking due diligence activities and reviewing financing documentation

Managing Director Barry Cahill commented:

"The finance process to fund the Restart of the Nifty Copper Project continues with multiple parties.To conserve funds, we have reduced personnel throughout the organisation until we complete the financing and commence the refurbishment schedule in earnest.

Our personnel have done an excellent job in getting Cyprium to the go line for when the finance process is completed and progress to date has been remarkable, as can be seen in the photos. Many people have told me that they would like to return to Nifty, if they are available, to build the roject and plate copper. We look forward to welcoming them back to the Cyprium family."
