Vancouver, British Columbia - Bell Copper Corporation ("Bell" or the "Company") (NEX: BCU.H) is pleased to report that on July 20, 2017, drilling began on Bell Copper Corporation's Kabba porphyry copper project in Arizona.
The initial 2017 drill program will complete 4 to 8 holes to test significant IP electrical geophysical anomalies identified during the Quantec Geoscience surveys performed in November 2016.
Holes are precollared to bedrock by Brown Drilling Company of Kingman, Az., with National Exploration, Wells & Pumps completing diamond drilling beneath the precollared holes.
"As we announced on March 30, the drilling is taking place beyond the limits of previous drill testing by Bell. After a long journey, we are excited at the opportunity to demonstrate that the fruit of this search is commensurate with our hard work and our investors' patience." Tim Marsh, President and CEO Bell Copper

Vancouver, British Columbia - Bell Copper Corporation ("Bell" or the "Company") (NEX: BCU.H) is pleased to report that on June 30 2017, the company received drill permit approval and mobilization immediately began for the 2017 drill program at the Company's Kabba porphyry copper project near Kingman, AZ.
Personnel, equipment and materials have been dispatched and preparation of drill sites and roadworks is underway. It is anticipated that drilling will begin within the next two weeks.
This initial 2017 drilling is focused on multiple high priority targets recently identified during the extensive geophysics program performed by Quantec Geosciences in November 2016.
These priority targets are situated beyond the limits of earlier drill testing by Bell. They appear to originate from depths of 400 to 500 meters where Bell has previously encountered significant porphyry-style disseminated sulfide mineralization. The dimensions of the IP anomalies that Quantec identified (3km x 4km) are c...
