QC Copper and Gold Inc. (TSX-V: QCCU) (OTCQB: QCCUF) is pleased to report additional assay results from its current drill program on the Opemiska Copper-Gold Property.
“This drill program postdates the Mineral Resource Estimate (2021 MRE) and is meant to improve the mineral resources by reducing the strip ratio by upgrading inferred resources into indicated resources category and identifying additional mineralized structures. This drill program has confirmed the existence of at least two additional mineralized east-west structures in the Gap area between the Springer Zone’s Vein #2 and Vein #3. Additionally, it has defined the extension at depth of two NW-SE mineralized structures in the Saddle Zone between Springer and Perry. Drilling in the Saddle Zone has outlined continuous mineralization to a minimum vertical depth of 220 metres where it remains open at depth. In contrast, the extension at depth of the mineralization within the Saddle Zone itself will deepen the Springer and Perry pits compared to the 2021 MRE”, said Charles Beaudry, Director and Vice President of Exploration for QC Copper.

Summary of significant reported composite intersections on Opemiska Project: Table 1
|*Copper Equivalent (“Cu Eq.”) grade including copper, gold, silver, cobalt and zinc based on 100% recoveries is calculated using the following equation: Cu Eq. = [(Cu % x 20 x Cu price) + (Au grade / 34.2857 x Au price) + (Ag grade / 34.2857 x Ag price) + (Co % x 20 x Co price) + (Zn % x 20 x Zn price)] / (20 x Cu price). We used Cu, Au, Ag, Co and Zn price of US$4.00, US$1,730, US$26.00 and US$23.90 and US$1.20 respectively. Note that the assays have not been capped.|
Update on Current Drill Program
The current drill program is designed to expand the in-pit current NI 43-101 compliant 81.7M tonnes @ 0.88% CuEq of Measured and Indicated Mineral Resources and 21.4M tonnes @ 0.73% CuEq of Inferred Mineral Resources (2021 MRE). As of June 26th, a total of 30,454.5 metres of drilling in 114 holes have been completed on the property since the publication of the 2021 MRE. A total of 19,269 samples have been collected and results have been received for 11,592 samples.
The technical information contained in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Charles Beaudry, P.Geo and géo., Director and Vice President Exploration for QC Copper & Gold, a Qualified Person, as defined in “National Instrument 43-101, Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects.” For the exploration undertaken by QC Copper & Gold, all assay batches are accompanied by rigorous Quality Assurance procedures that include the insertion of standards and blanks and verification assays in a secondary laboratory. Quality Control results, including the laboratory’s control samples, are evaluated immediately on reception of batch results and corrections implemented immediately if necessary. All drill collars are surveyed and positioned in UTM coordinates. Collars are oriented using a gyroscopic north-finding system and downhole deviations surveys are done with a single-shot gyroscopic instrument at 30 to 50m intervals.
