The hole, at the Majuba Hill Property which encompasses 4,822 acres of surface and mineral rights that includes three patented lode mining claims and 632 acres of privately-owned surface and minerals, was designed to expand the copper, gold, and silver mineralisation identified in historic drill data. Hole MHB-02 was drilled at a minus 45-degree inclination on an 045 azimuth to 474.5ft.
The core was logged on-site. It was sawn and sampled by Bam Bam contractors at the secured warehouse facility in Elko, Nevada. Core from the first hole MHB-01 has been submitted to ALS Geochemistry for sample analysis. The submittal includes copper, gold, and silver standard reference material, which meets CIM mineral exploration best practice guidelines.
David Greenway, president and CEO, said: "The core in the second drill hole, MHB-02, also showed rock-types and alteration that our geologist expected. We are encouraged that we now have two drill holes which have intersected what our geologic model predicted. I am looking forward to getting the analytical results from ALS Geochemistry."
