Cyprium Metals Drills Visible Copper Supergene Mineralisation

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Cyprium Metals (ASX: CYM) reported on progress of a Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling program underway at the company’s Nanadie Well copper-gold project in Western Australia.

Near-surface supergene mineralisation has been defined at the Nanadie Well Copper-Gold Project, which is open along strike to the north and south, as well as to the west.

The Company’s initial 3,500 metre Nanadie Well Phase 1 RC drilling programme has been designed to test the supergene mineralisation of the deposit.

“Drilling to date has seen visible copper supergene mineralisation in the RC chips such as malachite, azurite and chrysocolla,” Cyprium Metals executive director Barry Cahill said in the company’s ASX announcement.

“The presence of these visible minerals is very exciting as we submit samples to the assay laboratory for analysis.

“Supergene mineralisation is generally, easily leachable with acid, which complements the nearby Hollandaire mineral resource, which is a massive sulphide orebody, that has already demonstrated its acid generating capacity.

“We will eagerly await the results of this program to define the extent of the supergene mineralisation at the Nanadie Well.”

“These results will be used to generate a JORC 2012 compliant resource at the Nanadie Well copper-gold project.

“Cyprium is continuing to work on expanding our mineral resource base for inclusion in the Murchison copper-gold scoping study.”
