COPPER: Copper One Orbit Garant drill contract for Riviere Dore



QUEBEC – Copper One of Toronto is preparing to drill for copper mineralization at its Riviere Dore property 150 km southeast of Val d’Or. An initial 2,000-metre program is planned and applications for permits have been submitted.

The drilling contract has been awarded to Orbit Garant Drilling of Val d’Or, QC. Two rigs and crews will be mobilized to the site as soon as Copper One receives the permits.

The drill program will test the Hopkins and Bruges showings where a total of 42 priority targets have been laid out.

Scott Moore, chairman, president and CEO of Copper One, commented, “We are very excited to begin exploration drilling on our Riviere Dore property. We have been working extensively on preparation for initial drilling since our claim suspension was lifted in July of this year. Previous surface exploration in combination with geophysics over our 600 km2 claim package demonstrate the prospectivity of the area and we are pleased to begin drilling to unlock the potential of this property.”
