Cooper Metals (ASX:CPM) rock chips expand Brumby RidgeJanuary 17, 2024 Off By Rueben Hale
Cooper Metals has widened exploration of its exciting Brumby Ridge copper-gold prospect has yielded some positive results.
One sample located approximately 135m to the NNW of the current RC drilling significantly increased the geochemical footprint of the prospect within the Mt Isa East Cu-Au Project, returning 4.8% Cu and 0.08g/t Au.
Additionally, another rock chip sample located about 100m SE of drill hole 23MERC025 returned 2.95% Cu and 0.06g/t Au.
In late-October 2023, the company struck 21.4m @ 2.1% Cu & 0.08 g/t Au at the King Solomon copper-gold prospect at Brumby Ridge.
Now, a detailed UAV magnetic survey has defined an important lithological contact between interpreted magnetic low response lithology in the west and a relatively strong magnetic response lithology in the east.
The Cu-Au mineralisation appears to be focused along this lithological contact defined in the magnetic data.
Cooper Metals Managing Director Ian Warland says 1,000m of diamond drilling and up to 2,000m of RC drilling at Brumby Ridge will help ascertain the size and grade potential of the mineralisation.
“The detailed UAV-supported aeromagnetic survey has been extremely useful to map the lithological contact at Brumby Ridge, which we believe is important for focusing the Cu-Au mineralisation,” Mr Warland said
“This contact appears to continue along strike from the current drilling and along with new rock chip samples, has expanded our exploration search area at Brumby Ridge.
“Brumby Ridge represents an important near-term exploration opportunity for Cooper Metals, and we look forward to providing updates as we make progress on this prospect and others that make up the Mt Isa East Cu-Au Project.”
Drilling is expected to commence in late February 2024, with preparations underway to commence drilling after the wet season. The company is also planning to conduct an induced polarisation survey in late January/February at Brumby Ridge to optimise the drill planning.
