Northisle Copper and Gold Inc. is pleased to announce that drilling at the Company's 100% owned North Island Copper-Gold Project on Vancouver Island in British Columbia has started.
2014 Exploration Plans
With the successful completion of a private placement in July 2014 (see July 7, 2014 news release) exploration plans for 2014 include the drilling of an untested Induced Polarization anomaly extending for 1.5km from the deposit to the northwest. Grade contours and faulting in core suggests the northern half of the deposit displaced to the NW in the area of the IP anomaly, although there is no assurance that such mineralization will be found.
