Canadian-based Copper Mountain Mining Corp. has reported positive results from its drilling programme at the New Ingerbelle deposit near the Copper Mountain mine.
Results from the first four holes, out of a total of 14 planned holes, correlate with the block model grades interpolated from historical drilling and confirm the significant gold grades for this area.
The purpose of the drill programme is to validate historical drill data and increase the deposit size, which has the potential to add at least 10 years to production life.
The planned programme consists of approximately 5000 m of drilling. Highlights include 121.7 m grading 0.36% Cu and 0.16 g/t Au in drill hole 17IG-02 and 137.2 m grading 0.35% Cu and 0.24 g/t Au in drill hole 17IG-04.
