Idaho Copper Corp. will use Veracio’s TruScan to measure grade for thousands of feet of drill core from the CuMo project. The miner said it will use the resulting data to confirm previous lab analyses, to determine potential ore-sorting parameters for a preliminary economic assessment, and to guide further studies.

“The ultimate goal of this exercise is to reduce the overall mill size and significantly increase mill feed grades, which the company expects will translate into lower capital costs and higher profitability for the project,” Idaho Copper Corp. said.

TruScan, a mobile scanning unit, uses X-ray fluorescence to analyze drill core on as small as 1.5 cm intervals.
