Rockcliff Metals has completed its phase four drill program at the Bur property in central Manitoba. The program was successful in identifying additional shallow, near-surface, high-grade zinc-copper mineralization along strike of the historical Bur zinc-copper deposit.
Rockcliff is earning a 100% interest from Hudbay by spending C$3 million over a four-year period on the Bur property.
Rockcliff President and CEO Alistair Ross commented, “Our phase four drill program has shown great promise in extending the known mineralization of the historical Bur zinc-copper deposit. The drilling has identified shallow, high-grade mineralization above 150 m vertical over a distance of more than 500 m in an under-explored area south of the high-grade deposit.
“We look forward to continuing to advance the property as we near our 100% earn-in requirement of C$3 million. Given our current copper focus, we are particularly interested in the number of copper assays over 2% in this area.”
