Vancouver, British Columbia – Bell Copper Corporation (“Bell” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: BCU) is pleased to report that on December 5, 2017, the Company began coring on the second round of 2017 drilling at its Kabba porphyry copper project near Kingman, AZ.
As previously announced on September 26, the 2017 Kabba drilling budget allocated by the Optionee was utilized to complete 5 drillholes between July and September of 2017. All holes intercepted oxidized and leached capping in Laramide-age porphyritic intrusive rocks, several showing limited concentrations of chalcocite & chalcopyrite. Assays for these holes are still pending.
Ongoing analysis of this drill program has led the Optionee to return to Kabba for further drilling prior to the end of 2017. To that effect, two new drill sites were permitted in early November.
