Bell Copper Provides Update on the Perseverance Copper Porphyry Project
VANCOUVER, B.C. - Bell Copper Corporation (“Bell Copper” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: BCU) is pleased to provide an update from the Perseverance porphyry copper project, located in northwestern Arizona, USA.
Assay results from drill hole K-20, drilled vertically to a depth of 1,319 metres, returned anomalous copper values averaging 415 ppm copper over 595 metres (using a 200 ppm copper cut-off grade), beginning at a depth of 683 metres (refer to Table 1). This long intercept of anomalous copper indicates that the hole intersected the peripheral part of a porphyry copper system.
K-20 drilling in conjunction with the Magneto-telluric (“MT”) data, collected by a previous Bell Copper joint venture partner, suggest that the centre of the porphyry copper system is located to the northeast of drill hole K-20, this is also verified by downhole acoustic...
