Bell Copper starts drilling at Kabba
ON DEC. 5, 2017, Bell Copper Corp. began coring on the second round of 2017 drilling at its Kabba porphyry copper project near Kingman, Ariz.
As previously announced on Sept. 26, the 2017 Kabba drilling budget allocated by the Optionee was utilized to complete five drill holes between July and September of 2017. All holes intercepted oxidized and leached capping in Laramide-age porphyritic intrusive rocks, several showing limited concentrations of chalcocite and chalcopyrite. Assays for these holes are still pending.
Continuing analysis of this drill program has led the optionee to return to Kabba for further drilling prior to the end of 2017. To that effect, two new drill sites were permitted in early November.
