Stockwatch Daily - - MINES & METALS - Dr. Ti­mothy Marsh re­ports

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.

Kabba por­phyry cop­per project

A pri­mary fo­cus for Bell Cop­per is the con­tin­u­ing ex­plo­ration and de­vel­op­ment at the Kabba cop­per por­phyry project near King­man, Ariz., where, along with project op­tionee Ken­necott Ex­plo­ration Com­pany, the com­pany is pur­su­ing the faulted-off top of a po­ten­tial ma­jor por­phyry cop­per sys­tem, the bot­tom of which is ex­posed in the foothills over eight kilo­me­tres west of the com­pany’s prop­erty.

Qual­i­fied per­son

The tech­ni­cal con­tent of this re­lease has been re­viewed and ap­proved by Dr. Ti­mothy Marsh, PhD, PEng, the com­pany’s chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer and pres­i­dent. No min­eral re­source has yet been iden­ti­fied on the Kabba project. There is no cer­tainty that the present ex­plo­ration ef­fort will re­sult in the iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of a min­eral re­source or that any min­eral re­source that might be dis­cov­ered will prove to be eco­nom­i­cally re­cov­er­able.
