Approximately 4,000m (13,000ft) is planned to drill deeper holes below the copper enriched known copper oxide zone and to extend the granodiorite footprint discovered in the copper-gold target area.
David Greenway, president and CEO, said: "This is a key development phase for Majuba Hill. I expect these deeper holes to expand the copper mineralisation footprint and signify that Majuba can be a very significant source for world copper demands."
The company has a QA/QC programme using best industry practices in place at the Majuba Hill Project. The samples are transported from the BBR secure warehouse or directly from the project to the ALS sample prep facility in Reno or Elko, Nevada. ALS then transports the prepared pulps to their analytical lab in Reno, Nevada or Vancouver, British Columbia. Soil and rock chip samples are transported by the company directly to Elko or Reno, Nevada.
Drill core samples are sawn in half lengthwise and one half is placed in labelled cloth sample bags. All samples are analysed for copper, gold, silver, and 33 other elements. Gold is determined by ALS method Au-AA23 which is a fire assay with an AAS finish on a 30-gram split. Copper, silver and the remaining 31 elements are determined by ALS method ME-ICP61 which is a four acid digestion and ICP-AES assay. Approximately five per cent of the submitted samples are drill duplicates and copper-gold-porphyry commercial standard reference material pulps.
Copper mineralisation at Majuba is centred within a large contiguous land position. Bam Bam has 100 per cent control of the emerging Majuba Hill Copper District by private surface and mineral ownership, patented mining claims, and Federal Lode Mining claims. The property is in Nevada, a Tier 1 mining district that is the most mining-friendly place in North America and has well-developed transportation, power, and workforce infrastructure.
