Bell Copper Commences Core Drilling at the Big Sandy Porphyry Copper Project

VANCOUVER, B.C. - Bell Copper Corporation (TSX-V: BCU) (“Bell Copper” or the “Company”) reports that core drilling has commenced on the 100% owned Big Sandy porphyry copper project, a large, truncated porphyry copper-molybdenum prospect located in northwestern Arizona, approximately 30 kilometers from the Company’s Perseverance Project.

As part of this drill program, the Company has completed drilling a water well to supply water for the initial core drilling at Big Sandy. This well has the capacity to support multiple drill rigs, when required.

Initial field investigations (see August 18, 2020 News Release) by the Company at Big Sandy discovered exotic mineralization comprising copper, manganese, iron, and arsenic present in young valley-filling sediments as well as fanglomerate clasts carrying +1% copper as chrysocolla and chalcocite (supergene copper minerals) found across a distance of 1250 meters on the Company’s claims.

Subsequently the Company completed a Spartan MT survey (see October 6, 2020 News Release) at Big Sandy which identified a large conductive anomaly measuring 2400 meters by 2100 meters and extending at least 1500 meters vertically.

The Company believes that the unusual copper occurrences along with the large conductor identified in the recent MT survey are potentially linked to a shallowly covered porphyry copper deposit at Big Sandy.

Correction to News Release

The Company announces a correction to a misstatement in its news release of October 6, 2020, disclosing the size of the Big Sandy mineral rights controlled by the Company. The Company erroneously stated that the Company controls 5880 hectares when in fact it controls 5733 acres.

Big Sandy Porphyry Copper Project

Bell Copper began exploring the Big Sandy area in 2009, after geologic success in discovering what was believed to be the faulted top of the Wheeler Wash porphyry copper-molybdenum system, 30 kilometers to the north at the Company’s Perseverance project. Extrapolation southward along the controlling Hualapai Fault suggested that the known Laramide-age Diamond Joe porphyry copper system would also have a faulted-off top, lying east of Diamond Joe out in the Big Sandy Valley.
