Drill Results On The Hopper Cu-Au Project
VANCOUVER - CAVU Mining Corp. reported drill results for drill holes HOP21-DDH-01 to -03 on the Hopper copper-gold project in Yukon Territory, located in the traditional territory of the Champagne and Aishihik First Nations. Highlights: Hole HOP21-DDH-01 intersected 22.28m of 1.84% CuEq, consisting of of 1.405% Cu, 11.7 g/t Ag, and 0.532 g/t Au; Hole HOP21-DDH-02 intersected 9.39m of 0.78% CuEq, consisting of 0.622% Cu, 4.2 g/t Ag, and 0.197 g/t Au; and Hole HOP21-DDH-03 intersected 10.96m of 1.76% CuEq, consisting of 1.365% Cu, 9.6 g/t Ag, and 0.488 g/t Au.
"These encouraging high-grade drill results indicate that the true extent of Copper Castle is yet unknown as the mineralization remains open to the south, east and west," said, Jaap Verbaas, CEO. "The tenor of mineralization surpassed what we expected and Hole HOP21-DDH-01 contains the longest high-grade true-width intersect drilled on the Hopper Project to date. The holes tested a particular geophysical anomaly which continues further south for several hundred meters and we look forward to drill-testing this anomaly and the mineralization along strike."
Copper Castle is a skarn zone at the Hopper project of approximately 1350 x 650m in aerial extent. Geological modeling indicates at least 8 skarn horizons from surface to 400m depth. The drill intersects from hole HOP21-DDH-01 to DDH-DDH-03 are from one continues skarn horizon that is characterized by magnetite-chalcopyrite-pyrrhotite skarn to magnetite-carbonate-chalcopyrite skarn. The drill holes targeted an electromagnetic (EM) anomaly that continues towards the south and north and is largely undrilled. The intersects confirm this anomaly is associated with intense skarnification and massive sulphide mineralization. The correlation of the anomaly to massive sulphide mineralization also supports other untested EM anomalies on the claim.
