K-20 Drilling Recommences at the Perseverance Porphyry Copper Project
VANCOUVER, B.C. - Bell Copper Corporation (“Bell Copper” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: BCU) reports that core drilling has recommenced on drillhole K-20 at the Perseverance porphyry copper project, located in northwestern Arizona, USA.
As previously reported January 21, 2019, drillhole K-20 encountered more than 700 meters of anomalous copper minerals, comprising chalcopyrite, bornite, and chalcocite beginning at a depth of approximately 300 meters. In the lower part of K-20, the drill core became increasingly potassically altered with more frequent veins and quartz-molybdenite stringers, hydrothermal magnetite veins, and secondary biotite alteration. This information suggests that K-20 has approached the higher temperature region of the porphyry system. Based on the perceived proximity to the target, K-20 is being advanced.
