Wallbridge, which owns 78 per cent of the joint venture, said in a news release the occurrences are part of a one-km trend of copper-PGE mineralization that is along strike from Wallbridge’s Broken Hammer property.
Broken Hammer is a copper-PGE project in the pre-feasibility stage.
"These new copper-PGE occurrences along the same strike trend of our Broken Hammer deposit demonstrate the strong potential of Wallbridge's Wisner area property package, which extends over 10 kilometres of favourable geology,” said Marz Kord, president and CEO of Wallbridge, in a news release.”
Grab sample highlights from 2012 include 3.90 per cent copper with 6.62 g/t total precious metals, 2.84 per cent copper with 4.34 g/t total precious metals, and 2.81 per cent copper with 3.96 g/t total precious metals.
Channel sample highlights from 20123 include 1.28 metres containing 1.35 per cent copper with 3.90 g/t total precious metals, 1.99 metres containing 0.71 per cent copper with 2.40 g/t total precious metals, and 0.16 metres containing 5.59 per cent copper with 5.39 g/t total precious metals.
