Superior Copper Corp. has discovered a new zone of copper-silver-gold mineralization at its project near Sault Ste. Marie.
Recent drilling at the site intersected the new mineralized zone at 315 metres, which is deeper than any previous work done anywhere on the property. No previous drilling has occurred within 1.7 kilometres of this drill hole.
Drill hole SPC-14-01 intersected 1.26 per cent copper, 9.89 grams per tonne silver, and 0.10 grams per tonne gold.
The company is bringing a second drill to the property to develop this new mineralized zone, while the original diamond drill rig will continue on iron-oxide-copper-gold targets identified by Superior's geologists and geophysical surveys.
The Superior project, which covers 15,789 hectares, is situated at the old Coppercorp Mine about 85 kilometres north of the Sault and is 100 per cent owned by Superior Copper.
