Strongbow Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: SBW) reports that it has received the final assays for the over-limit copper assays from the high-grade discovery at the United Downs project, Cornwall UK (see Company News Release dated April 7, 2020).

UNITED DOWNS PROJECT
The United Downs project covers, or is located immediately adjacent to, four former copper and tin producing mines: Consolidated Mines and United Mines to the west; and, Mount Wellington and Wheal Jane Mines to the east (see map). The main mineralised structures in all four mines trend ENE and dip steeply to the north. All of the mineralisation exploited historically is related to either quartz veins or quartz-tourmaline veins hosted within “killas”, the local name for metasedimentary rocks that overlie granite intrusions.
GWDD-002 was drilled by Priority Drilling Company Ltd using an Epiroc Christensen CT20 Diamond Drill Rig. The part of the hole in which this intersection was encountered was drilled in PQ (122.6mm diameter) with a triple tube core barrel to recover an 83mm diameter drillcore. Core recovery was greater than 95%. The core was logged, split and sampled by Strongbow Exploration personnel. The samples, comprising quarter core, were sent for assay at ALS Minerals, Loughrea, Ireland. Sample preparation involved crushing to 70% less than 2mm, riffle split and pulverised to 85% less than 75 microns. The analytical method used was X-ray fluorescence (XRF) following a lithium borate fusion. Samples were assayed for As, Cu, Fe, Pb, S, Sn, W, and Zn. A comprehensive Quality Assurance / Quality Control programme using duplicates and blanks was included within the sampling programme.
