Nevada Copper has released additional positive drilling results from the Section 11 Target and the East Deposit at the Pumpkin Hollow property in Nevada. These assay results are from the recent 20,000 meter step-out extension program.
The company has drilled NC10-65 and NC11-01 as step-out holes in the East Deposit. In 2010, NC10-65 was pre-collared and later concluded as a geotechnical hole down the south of the deposit. A large low-grade mineralized zone is broadening to the south and the high-grade mineral zones are tapering. The step-out hole NC11-01 drilled along the northeast of the deposit was extending the mineralized potential to the east and remains open. Nevada Copper has cut 1.30% copper over 28.2m and 25.4m in NC11-01.
The company has drilled NC11-05 at the Section 11 target, which is situated in around 500 meters from the planned E2 shaft. The hole intersected about 1.4% copper when drilled around 210 meters down dip from FG-58. Numerous mineralized zones have been intersected and encountered 1.0% copper over 12.8m and 4.4m.
Nevada Copper is relentlessly producing encouraging results from the step-out drilling at NC11-01 along the northeastern frontier of the East Deposit and verifies mineralization. The former exploration at Section 11 has concentrated on footwall lithologies that contained iron mineralization. Copper mineralization targeted recently is identical to the E2 deposit. The latest drilling results are integrated into the exploration model to define the unexplored mineralized areas.
