CMC Metals Ltd. ("CMC" or the "Company") (TSXV:CMB) (OTC:CMCXF) (Frankfurt:ZM5N) is pleased to announce positive preliminary exploration results from a reconnaissance site visit conducted on its Bridal Veil Property in Newfoundland.
A brief visit involving the sampling of known showings on the property resulted in the identification of an extensive area of anomalous copper and bismuth mineralization with minor silver. The area has coincident EM anomalies that are yet to be explained. Values from grab samples of veined psammitic metasediments ranged from 0.041% to 3.473% copper, 0.74-136.96 g/t bismuth, and 1069-19340 ppb silver. Historical sampling have returned grades of up to 9.4% copper, 10.2% lead, 7.8 oz/t silver and 3.75 g/t gold. The Bridal Veil mineral occurrences have been previously identified as being related to an epigenetic copper-silver +/- lead and gold orogenic vein system hosted in deeply dipping shear zones. The property is transected by the Trans Canada Highway approximately 10 kilometers east of Gander and 15 km east of Newfound Gold's Queensway Project.
Kevin Brewer, P.Geo. President and CEO of CMC noted, "We are highly encouraged about these preliminary results at Bridal Veil. Less than 15% of the property area has been explored to date. At this stage it is clear we need to better understand the mineralizing system as the tenure of mineralization is very encouraging. It is now a matter of determining the extent, possible continuity, and subsurface potential of this mineralization throughout the property. Our plans are to further examine this property in the fall after work is completed on our flagship property at Silver Hart in Yukon."
