Northisle Copper and Gold, a Vancouver-based junior resource company, has declared that the Induced Polarization (IP) Survey conducted on the Island Copper Project’s eastern Rupert Block has identified two IP chargeability anomalies in regions of widespread glacial sedimentary cover.
The Rupert Block is situated 10 km from the Island Copper Mine location and about 40 km from the Hushamu Deposit where Northisle started a 4,000 m drill project.
The first anomaly is 300 m wide on the nearest line situated 1,000 m to the east, and is 800 m wide and stays exposed to the west. Former drill holes situated on the northern side of this anomaly intersected chloritically, silicified and pyrite modified volcanic rocks. The second anomaly exists on three lines located 1 km apart and stays exposed to the north on all the lines.
The IP Survey conducted on the Rupert Block shows about 25% of the entire program of IP Survey designed to assess prior untested magnetic anomalies enclosed by new glacial deposits. The company will complete the rest of the IP Survey after the weather turns favorable.
Northisle’s President and CEO, Jack McClintock stated that the identification of two untested IP anomalies linked with modified rocks and magnetic anomalies that generally occur on the porphyry copper deposits’ edges is quite encouraging and warrants additional IP surveying and drill testing.
