A total of 176 soil samples and 34 rock samples have been submitted to the laboratory for analysis;
The mineralisation outcrops at surface, allowing for low-cost, near-surface exploration which, the company anticipates will result in lower exploration costs.
Whilst results are awaited from the Copper Dome project, a Rockfire field crew will mobilise to the Kookaburra tenement in Queensland, Australia, to commence soil sampling and ground magnetics. This program will test a 1.5-kilometre western extension to the Double Event prospect.
"This initial program of work at Copper Dome has provided our field crews with a good understanding of the specific issues relevant to a new project including access, terrain, geomorphology, outcrop distribution, geology and surface mineralization,” said Rockfire chief David Price.
“The soil and rock samples will provide a great snapshot of the overall potential of the prospect to deliver a project of scale. Results obtained from the soil and rock sampling will assist Rockfire's pending decision whether to exercise the option to acquire Copper Dome, a decision which is required by May 2019."
