Northisle Copper and Gold (TSXV:NCX) announced today that it intersected 0.72% Cu Eq. over 50m, 0.47% Cu Eq. over 101m at the North Island Copper and Gold Project. The drilling effectively extends mineralization more than 200m beyond the modelled pit shell. The assay results come from the 2022 Spring drill program at Hushamu, and continue to affirm the interpretation that higher-grade mineralization lies within under-drilled areas of the currently modelled pit at the deposit.
HU22-06 showed it continued in copper mineralization for at least 200m past the outline of the originally modelled pit shell.
Highlights from the assay results are as follows:
Robin Tolbert, Vice President of Exploration at Northisle commented in a press release: “Drilling at Hushamu during early 2022 continues to demonstrate the potential for improved grade and tonnage at Hushamu. In addition, we have demonstrated that historical visual interpretations of the alteration profile at Hushamu may have underestimated the overall size of the mineralized portion of the system.”
Hushamu 2022 Drill Results
Northisle has now received the assay results of the six drill holes from its 2022 Spring drill program at Hushamu (HU22-01 to HU22-06), which has the objective of converting in-pit Inferred Mineral Resources to Indicated Mineral Resources ahead of the Company’s planned pre-feasibility study. The mineralization remains open to the northwest and southeast of the deposit, and based on results released today is interpreted to be open at depth significantly past previous modelling.
The significance of the additional 2022 Spring infill holes at Hushamu are:
