Nuinsco Resources to Conduct Diamond Drilling Program at Berta Project, Turkey

Multi-commodity mineral exploration company, Nuinsco Resources and Xstrata Copper Canada, Nuinsco’s joint venture partner, will perform a 7,500 m diamond drilling campaign at the Berta copper project located in northeastern Turkey.

The companies will employ two diamond drills for the drilling campaign, which will include about nine holes varying from 800 to 1000 m in length. The diamond drills will target copper in soil anomalies, overlying the core section of the Berta porphyry system. Drilling is likely to be started by June 2012. Prior drill results reveal the continuity of anomalous copper mineralization in the Berta’s rocks, underlined by the results of DDH SD-07-08 hole, which returned 710.9 m grading 0.07 g/t gold between 3.80 m and 714.7 m and 0.28% copper, and DDH SD-08-10 drill holes, which returned 164.0 m grading 0.06 g/t gold between 250.5 m and 414.5 m, and 0.20% copper.

Nuinsco Resources’ President, Paul Jones stated that the Berta copper project offers significant exploration potential and has delivered exceptional results. Jones added that the company is happy that Xstrata is going to examine the bedrock geology within the domain of copper enrichment in soils which is known as a major copper anomaly in the Turkish Pontides.

The Berta copper project lies 50 km towards the south of the Black Sea in northeastern Turkey inside the mineralized Tethyan-Eurasian Metalogenic Belt hosting a number of ore deposits.

Xstrata Copper Canada is the operator of the Berta copper project.
