Tintina Drills 23.66 Meters Grading 5.45% Copper on Its 100% Owned High Grade Black Butte Copper Project, Montana

 

 

 

Mike Niehuser interviews Tintina CEO

 

Tintina Resources Inc. (TSX-VENTURE:TAU)(OTCQX:TINTF) announce it has received assay results for fifteen (15) new drill holes from the company’s flagship Black Butte Copper Project, located in central Montana, USA (see table 1). These in-fill drill holes completed in late 2012 in the Lowry Deposit Middle Zone together with earlier drilling results will form the basis for a new Lowry Deposit Middle Zone resource estimate, expected in Q2 of 2013.

 

 

Highlights of the 2012 in-fill drill program from the Lowry Deposit – Middle Zone (LD – MZ):

 

 

 

 

—  Drill hole SC12-152 intersected 38.40 meters grading 2.66% Copper (Cu),

0.09% Cobalt (Co), and 12.5 g/tonne Silver (Ag)

—  Drill hole SC12-163 intersected 16.90 meters grading 2.85% Copper (Cu),

0.08% Cobalt (Co), and 16.6 g/tonne Silver (Ag)

—  Drill hole SC12-164 intersected 38.13 meters grading 2.83% Copper (Cu),

0.08% Cobalt (Co), 16.7 g/tonne Silver (Ag)

—  Drill hole SC12-168 intersected 23.66 meters grading 5.45% Copper (Cu),

0.11% Co, and 20.9 g/tonne Silver (Ag).

 
 

 

The results from the four (4) 2012 drill holes highlighted above are among results from fifteen (15) new drill holes which will help provide the basis for a forthcoming Lowry Deposit Middle Zone (LD-MZ) resource estimate which is scheduled to be completed later in 2013. Two (2) holes, SC12-161 and SC12-163, continued to depth to test the Lowry Deposit Lower Zone (LD-LZ) and six (6) additional holes also produced good grade but thin intersections from the Lowry Deposit Upper Zone (LD-UZ).

 

 
Jerry Zieg, Vice President of Exploration said: “We are very pleased to continue to report thick, high grade copper intersections from the Black Butte Copper project. The Lowry Middle Zone results will form the basis for a new resource estimate for the Lowry deposit which should become a substantial addition to our Measured and Indicated Resource inventory. We will then have the opportunity to incorporate the updated drill defined resources in a pre-feasibility or feasibility study currently being contemplated by the Company.”
