COPPER: Gold Reach drills 0.78% CuEq at East Seel

BRITISH COLUMBIA – Gold Reach Resources of Vancouver continues to cut high grade mineralization at its Ootsa property adjacent to the Huckleberry mine near Smithers.



BRITISH COLUMBIA – Gold Reach Resources of Vancouver continues to cut high grade mineralization at its Ootsa property adjacent to the Huckleberry mine near Smithers.

At the East Seel deposit, four recent holes returned high grades.

  • Hole S13-172 cut 35.8 metres of 0.84% CuEq from 39.2 to 75.0 metres depth.
  • Hole S13-174 cut 91.5 metres of 0.62% CuEq from 36.5 to 128.0 metres depth, including 53.5 metres of 0.76 % CuEq.
  • Hole S13-175 cut 46.5 metres of 0.74% CuEq from 101.7 to 148.0 metres depth.
  • Hole S13-177 returned 186.2 metres of 0.78% CuEq from 26.8 to 213.0 metres depth, including 2.2 metres grading 1.15% CuEq and 46.0 metres of 1.15% CuEq.

Additional drilling at the West Seel deposit expanded the area of near surface, high grade expansion 80.0 metres more to the southeast from the discovery hole. Mineralization starts as shallow as 7.0 metres below surface and has been outlined over widths of up to 150.0 metres, a length of up to 125.0 metres and a thickness of up to 40.0 metres – and the deposit is open.

Long mineralized intercepts were also pulled from the West Seel deposit: 224.0 metres of 0.42% CuEq, 126.0 metres of 0.36% CuEq, 198.0 metres of 0.39% CuEq, and 58.2 metres of 0.41% CuEq.
