COPPER-ZINC: Dragon is third VMS zone for Puma at Turgeon

NEW BRUNSWICK – Rimouski, QC’s Puma Exploration says its 2015 drill program at the Dragon discovery successfully confirmed that this is the third major volcanogenic massive sulphide zone at the Turgeon project 5 km south of Belledune.

In a recent news release, the company said that four holes cut multiple massive sulphide drill intercepts up to 13 meters wide. These intercepts are composed of variable amounts of pyrite, chalcopyrite and sphalerite. There are also higher grade copper-zinc stockwork zones located within a larger mineralized halo intercept exceeding 100 meters.

Puma discovered the Dragon zone in 2013 when it drilled 4 metres of massive sulphides grading 3.79% ZnEq. Now the zone is believed to be as large as the combined Powerline and Zinc zones at Turgeon.
