Happy Creek Minerals Ltd. (TSXV:HPY) announced results of additional drilling from its on-going exploration on the Rateria property, Highland Valley district, British Columbia, Canada.
As quoted in the press release:
New results from Zone 1 include drill hole R11-10 with 50.0 metres of 0.39% copper, 2.4 g/t silver within an overall mineralized interval of 280.3 metres containing 0.14% copper that starts at 190.0 metres. R11-10 is located approximately 65 metres south of R07-13 (189 metres of 0.22% copper including 84 metres of 0.30% copper) and approximately 50 metres north of R07-12/14 that are relatively shallow holes with positive alteration and geochemical levels of copper that are of exploration interest. R11-10 cut the zone beneath R07-12, 14 and has extended significant grades in Zone 1 to the south by 65 metres and it remains open in extent.
Happy Creek’s President and CEO, David Blann states:
“R11-10 is important as it has expanded Zone 1 and suggests increasing size and grade beneath previous shallow holes. In addition, many of our widespread exploration holes look similar to these shallow holes and reflect positively on the size of this mineral system and the potential within it. Zone 1 is continuously mineralized over 900 metres, remains open in extent and we are encouraged with the persistence of the structure. There is an excellent chance it continues and may lead us to the discovery of another deposit”.
