Big One potential confirmed
The company continues to confirm the strong potential of Big One Deposit within the Mt Oxide Project in northwest Queensland’s Mt Isa Copper Belt amidst a strong copper market with the latest assays returning shallow copper mineralisation of up to 4.14%.
The assays from four holes have returned economic intercepts and have supported the observations made from the core with best results of:
- 7 metres at 1.37% copper from 57 metres including 3 metres at 2.18% from 58 metres;
- 1-metre at 4.14% from 65 metres;
- 7 metres at 0.54% from 55 metres including 2 metres at 1.35% from 60 metres; and
- 4 metres at 0.43% from 85 metres including 2 metres at 1.03% from 85 metres.
Assay results for the full seven drill-holes completed are being finalised and are expected to be returned shortly.
