Kincora Copper (TSXV: KCC) has reported assay results from the first drill hole at its Trundle copper-gold project in Australia.
Drill hole TRDD001 intersected several significant intervals of gold and copper mineralization from skarn zones within the southern portion of the property, which is situated in the Macquarie Arc of the Lachlan Fold belt in central-west New South Wales.
