Empire Mining Discovers Significant Copper-Gold Anomaly‎

Empire Mining Corp. have announced the discovery of a continuous copper and gold anomalous zone in the Southwest Zone of the Demirtepe project in Turkey.

The ongoing sampling program has revealed that the 1.8 km long Southwest Zone mineralization is about one kilometer away from the Main Zone of the copper, gold, silver and molybdenum project in Turkey.

There is a view that the Southwest Zone was a basement below the Demirtepe Main Zone deposit but broke away. This is supported by the finding of signs of epithermal style quartz with chalcopyrite and pyrite which indicates a higher temperature.

292 samples have been taken in the first phase of sampling from a 200 by 200 meter grid. The sampling has returned significant gold and copper levels. There is also indication of silver from wollastonite bearing boulders. More detailed 100 by 100 meter grid sampling is now in progress on the mining site.

As per the company press release mapping has been extended to encompass the extension areas of the Southwest Zone and an IP/resistivity survey is planned to start in a few days to identify the possible location of the porphyry system believed to be the driver for the skarn-hosted mineralization at Demirtepe. The next phase of drilling at Demirtepe is planned to commence in the fall and will be focused on the Southwest Zone.
