TNC Intercepts 6m @12.99 g/t Au and 10m Cu at Wallace North with Multiple High-Grade Zones

True North Copper Limited (ASX:TNC) (True North, TNC or the Company) is pleased to announce resource extension drilling and Induced Polarisation (IP) survey results at Wallace North, part of its Conclurry Project in Queensland, identified multiple open zones of high-grade copper and gold mineralisation. Wallace North has a current combined Indicated and Inferred resource of 1.39Mt @ 1.38% Cu and 0.90 g/t Au.


Highlights:
  • Drill results highlighted significant growth potential including:
    • Defining the down plunge continuity of a 100m wide, 250m deep high-grade copper gold shoot open at depth
    • Intersecting the top of an untested shoot, potentially 200m wide and open to depth.
  • Significant high-grade copper and gold mineralisation across drillhole results included:

WNR0001

− 10.0m (8.74m*) @ 2.22% Cu, 1.41g/t Au from 146.00m

WNR0006

− 6.0m (5.05m*) @ 0.43% Cu, 12.99g/t Au from 151.00m− 4.0m (3.35m*) @ 3.38% Cu, 1.81g/t Au from 88.00m

WNR0002

− 7.0m (5.55m*) @ 2.14% Cu, 1.13g/t Au from 110.00m

WNR0005

− 5.0m (3.82m*) @ 2.18% Cu, 7.31g/t Au from 182.00mInc. 2.0m (1.53m*) @ 2.89% Cu, 17.08g/t Au from 185.00m

WNR0007

− 3.0m (2.51m*) @ 3.57% Cu, 2.48g/t Au from 109.00m− 7.0m (5.90m*) @ 3.10% Cu, 1.32g/t Au from 214.00m

  • New IP geophysics and historic EM indicate substantial depth extent to the Wallace North system and highlight new targets with similar signatures to recent discoveries of gold-endowed iron-sulphide-copper-gold deposits in the Mt Isa Inlier.
  • Further development of Wallace North will include resource restatement, mining and metallurgical studies, downhole and ground-based geophysics and follow-up drillhole targeting (with completion expected Q1 2024).

Comment

True North Copper’s Managing Director, Marty Costello said:

“A successful resource expansion drilling and IP survey program at our fully permitted, 100%-owned, high-grade copper and gold Wallace North Project has identified multiple zones of high-grade copper and gold mineralisation outside the current resource shell, including Hole WNR0001, which included 10m (true width 8.74m) at 2.22% copper and 1.41g/t gold.

Additionally, the high-grade gold intercept of WNR0006 was a highlight with 6m (true width of 5.05m) of 0.43% copper and an impressive 12.99g/t gold.

The current Wallace North Resource is 1.39Mt has a copper grade of 1.39% and gold grade of 0.9g/t, but it does not have a Reserve. Thanks to this completed resource expansion drilling and IP surveying, along with our recently concluded advanced grade control drilling program, which included 150 drillholes and more than 9400m of drilling, we can now finalise an updated resource for Wallace North.

Wallace North is an important part of our Cloncurry Hub mining plans. This drilling program confirms there are several high- grade copper and gold zones within the Wallace North approved mining footprint, open at depth and warranting further exploration. More drilling will be undertaken across these zones and the anomalies we identified as part of recent IP surveys.

We are conducting revised metallurgical tests in conjunction with the upcoming technical tasks related to the development of the initial Wallace North Reserve Statement. This testing aims to validate effective extraction and processing methods. The prevalent copper mineralisation in the resource, as observed from our drilling, is chalcopyrite, which typically responds well to standard flotation. Given the gold is intertwined with the copper mineralisation, there is a strong possibility of extracting gold in a concentrated form during ore processing.”

Summary of TNC’s Drill Intersections to date

True North Copper has received assay results from eight (8) reverse circulation (RC) drillholes (WNR0001 to WNR0008) completed at its Wallace North Resource. These constitute both infill and extension holes to the 2023 resource1 (Figure 2 and Figure 3). Significant downhole intercepts are provided in Table 1 and illustrated in plan, long and cross-sections Figure 2, Figure 3, Appendix 1 .

What Factors Affect Copper Supply and Demand? (Updated 2024)

From wiring and plumbing to electric vehicles (EVs) and electronics, base metal copper is key for a range of important applications in various industries. In fact, it's even earned the moniker "Dr. Copper."

That's because copper's widespread uses make it a valuable indicator for global economic health. Knowing what drives copper prices today is therefore helpful for investors who are focused on the bigger picture for copper.

Even though the red metal took a COVID-19-induced dive in the early spring of 2020, both 2021 and 2022 turned out to be record-setting years for the copper price. That trend has continued this year — in May, copper hit yet another a fresh all-time high, reaching US$5.20 per pound on the Comex, which equates to US$11,464 per metric ton (MT).
