Nevada Copper Corp.: North Deposit Mineralization Continues to Expand, Including New Shallow Mineralization

 

 

 

 

 

Nevada Copper Corp. (TSX:NCU)  is pleased to announce drill results from its 100% owned Pumpkin Hollow Property located near Yerington, Nevada. Results from three (3) drill holes of the current follow-up 2013 drill program are described below. Further drill results are pending.
The current follow-up drill program has targeted the new mineralization discovered at the end of last year’s drilling program which was not included in the resource update released in September 2012. The results represent drilling along the southern edge of the open-pittable North deposit and just outside the current feasibility study open pit limits.
 

Two holes, NC13-03 and NC13-06, intersected multiple zones of mineralization along the south edge of the North deposit. The mineralized zones in NC13-03 totaled 263 feet (80.2 meters) and average 0.53% copper. Mineralization remains open and seems to trend south/southeast toward pre-collar hole NC13-09.
 

NC13-09 is located east of NC13-03 and NC13-04. This shallow pre-collar hole intersected 55 feet (16.8 meters), 51.5 feet (15.7 meters) true thickness averaging 0.43% copper and bottomed in 25 feet (7.6 meters), 23.3 feet (7.1 meters) true thickness of shallow mineralization averaging 0.46% copper. The hole has been has been completed to depth and results are pending.
 

Gregory French, Vice President, Senior Project Manager, commented, “The results from drill holes NC13-03 and NC13-06 continue to demonstrate the potential to further expand the mineralization between the North and South deposit. The shallow mineralization encountered in the pre-collar NC13-09 is very encouraging. While also indicating the strength of the mineralizing system, the shallow mineralization will have a positive effect on future pits designs.”
