ALASKA – Coventry Resources of Vancouver has cut multiple intervals and significant thicknesses of massive sulphides in the first hole it has drilled to commence evaluation of the lens 7/8 target at the Caribou Dome copper project 250 km northeast of Anchorage. The target is a 175-metre long IP anomaly located between outcropping mineralization in lenses 7 and 8.

Drill hole CD15-14 was drilled to a depth of 70 metres, and the core showed six intervals of mineralized semi-massive to massive sulphide. The longest of these was 10.6 metres of chalcopyrite beginning at 137.5 metres down hole. Other intervals ranged from 0.3 to 2.1 metres. Assays are pending.

Coventry has begun a 4,000 metre drill program focused on five IP anomalies – the 2, 6 East and 4 West lenses, the Caribou South, and the 7/8 lens. The combined strike length of these targets is longer than 1,200 metres.
