BRITISH COLUMBIA The site of the former Ajax copper mine near Kamloops is yielding promising drill core for 100%-owner DRC RESOURCES. Five holes drilled recently to test for sulphide mineralization between and below the two old open pits has indicated a "large near-surface copper sulphide system with an associated gold credit," says the company.
Three of the holes returned significant results over a length of 400 metres and to a depth of 300 metres. The longest intersection was 278 metres averaging 0.233% Cu and 0.159 g/t Au. Other assays returned similar grades, and DRC says it intends to continue exploration in the hope of finding a higher-grade core.
The Ajax mine is located 10 km east of the former Afton copper mine, once operated by TECK COMINCO. DRC has prepared an updated scoping study and a mineral resource estimate for the project. These reports as well as maps and photos are available at www.DRCresources.com.
