BRITISH COLUMBIA – Copper Mountain Mining of Vancouver says the latest results from drilling at the New Ingerbelle deposit validated and confirmed historical data. The deposit is  part of the Copper Mountain copper-gold project 20 km south of Princeton.

Copper Mountain said the 35 significant drill intersections from the current program have an average grade of 0.48% copper equivalent. These are some of the better intersections:

  • 72.0 metres at 0.42% copper, 0.30 g/t gold and 0.62 g/t silver;
  • 97.5 metres at 0.54% copper, 0.26 g/t gold and 1.61 g/t silver;
  • 39.6 metres at 0.57% copper, 0.36 g/t gold and 0.86 g/t silver;
  • 24.4 metres at 0.43% copper, 0.43 g/t gold and 0.93 g/t silver;
  • 88.4 metres at 0.40% copper, 0.30 g/t gold and 0.77 g/t silver;
  • 21.4 metres at 0.48% copper, 0.07 g/t gold and 1.65 g/t silver;
  • 57.9 metres at 0.47% copper, 0.21 g/t gold and 1.01 g/t silver;
  • 36.5 metres at 0.51% copper, 0.16 g/t gold and 0.46 g/t silver;
  • 33.5 metres at 0.46% copper, 0.32 g/t gold and 0.84 g/t silver;
  • 64.0 metres at 0.36% copper, 0.25 g/t gold and 0.85 g/t silver; and
  • 54.8 metres at 0.49% copper, 0.29 g/t gold and 0.67 g/t silver.

The Ingerbelle inferred resource calculated from historical data is 104.0 million tonnes grading 0.42% copper equivalent (0.30% copper and 0.20 g/t gold) using a 0.2% copper cut-off grade.
