QUEBEC – Toronto-based PowerOre has received promising assays from two more drill holes at the Opemiska copper mine complex near Chapais. The location puts the project within Quebec’s Plan Nord.

Hole OPM-19-08 returned 0.04% copper, 2.84% zinc, 1.95 g/t gold. 7.19 g/t silver and 0.006% cobalt over 8.0 metres and 0.35% copper, 0.08% zinc, 0.12 g/t gold, 3.31 g/t silver and 0.004% cobalt over 12.4 metres.

Hole OPM-19-09 tested 0.19% copper, 0.008% zinc, 0.10 g/t gold, 1.05 g/t silver, and 0.003% cobalt over 295.6 metres, including 0.59% copper, 0.009% zinc, 0.15 g/t gold, 3.41 g/t silver and 0.005%  cobalt over 19.8 metres. There were two further intersections: 108.0 metres of 0.99% copper, 0.011% zinc, 0.22 g/t gold, 3.09 g/t silver, and 0.007% cobalt and 16.0 metres of 0.56% copper, 0.08% zinc, 0.46 g/t gold, 4.97 g/t silver and 0.010 cobalt.

PowerOre says the Opemiska complex includes the former Springer and Perry mines that were operated by Falconbridge for over 35 years until 1991.
