Kabba Porphyry Copper Project
BellCopper has been pursuing the faulted-off top of a major porphyry copper system, the bottom of which is exposed in the foothills west of the Company's property.
A mile-wide zone of porphyry intrusions, breccias, alteration and mineralization has been intercepted in the Company's drillholes from K-9/10 to K-11 to K-12, demonstrating that what we are pursuing is large. Fall 2016 geophysics identified several priority targets which are being tested by the 2017 drilling program.
