Nevada Copper Announces Positive Step-Out Hole Results from Pumpkin Hollow Property

Nevada Copper has reported further encouraging results from step-out holes drilled at the Pumpkin Hollow property in Nevada. Currently, a geotechnical, a hydrologic, and three exploration drilling service rigs are working at the project.

The company drilled four holes along the deposit’s southwestern segment and northeastern margin, wherein drilling is continued to cut and extend several mineralized zones. Nevada Copper drilled the NC11-27 along the southwestern boundary and cut 0.96% copper over 278 m. It has intersected 0.113 g/t gold, 1.39% copper, 0.014% molybdenum and 4.5 g/t silver over 93.6 m, 2.48% copper over 33.5 m.

Nevada Copper encountered several stacked mineralization zones in the NC11-22 located in the North deposit’s southwestern segment. Continuity of mineralization was validated in the upper zones and extended in the lower zones. The company intersected 0.67% copper over 222 m from the mineralized zones.

The drill holes NC11-21 and NC11-26 along the deposit’s northeastern edge cut various mineralized zones, including 1.77% copper over 12.2 m in NC11-21. Mineralization stays exposed and the company has planned for a further drill program.

Gregory French controls the drilling program conducted at the Pumpkin Hollow property. Whole rock geochemistry analysis and assaying was conducted at the American Assay Laboratories (AAL) in Nevada. Nevada Copper has sent samples from the project core logging unit to AAL.
