Rockcliff Resources reports that drilling at the Tower property within its Snow Lake project area in Manitoba has intersected high-grade copper mineralization at the T-1 copper deposit and identified a second potential sulphide source at the T-2 copper zone. The company’s winter drill program at the property completed five drill holes totaling almost 1,500 m.
At the T-1 deposit, two holes tested an area south of the deposit’s high-grade copper indicated resource. Both holes intersected high-grade copper mineralization. High-grade intersections included 6.8% copper, 1.6 g/mt gold, 1.8% zinc and 41.5 g/mt silver across 1.1 m in one hole, and 8.4% copper, 0.9 g/mt gold, 2.4% zinc and 44.6 g/mt silver across 2.7 m in another.
At the T-2 copper zone, three drill holes intersected a thick section of pervasive VMS alteration over a strike length of 150 m north the 2012 discovery hole, which intersected 4 m grading 2.44% copper, 0.7 g/mt gold, 18.2 g/mt silver, and 0.3% zinc. The holes intersected anomalous values from trace up to 6% copper over narrow widths within the alteration package.
