Northisle Copper and Gold Inc. (TSXV: NCX) has announced the first batch of drill results from its 2023 Phase 3 programme at Northwest Expo in British Columbia, Canada, which demonstrated continuity of the gold rich Zone 1 within Northwest Expo.
“We are nearing completion of delivering final drill results, metallurgical testing, and an initial resource at Northwest Expo Zone 1; in addition to initiating our fully financed 2024 Phase 1 drill programme during the first quarter (of) this year,” commented Sam Lee, president & CEO of Northisle.
“This is a strong start to what we believe will be a transformational year at Northisle as we progress our district-scale opportunity for critical metals.”
Northisle Copper and Gold Inc. is a Vancouver-based company whose mission is to become Canada’s leading sustainable mineral resource company for the future. Northisle, through its wholly-owned subsidiary North Island Mining Corp., owns the North Island Project, which is one of the most promising copper and gold porphyry projects in Canada.
Northwest Expo, a property within the North Island project, intercepted wide intervals of gold-enriched mineralization adjacent to the high-grade interval in hole NW23-13. Hole NW23-20 included 87m grading 1.46g/t Au Eq and 37m grading 1.14g/t Au Eq, along with hole NW23-21 which included 96m grading 1.42g/t Au Eq.
Intercepts were targeted near hole NW23-13 in order to demonstrate continuity of the higher grade in this area and are among the best intervals on a length times grade basis within Northwest Expo Zone 1.
The North Island Project is located near Port Hardy, BC on a more than 34,000ha block of mineral titles 100% owned by Northisle stretching 50km northwest from the now closed Island Copper Mine operated by BHP Billiton.
Northisle completed an updated preliminary economic assessment for the North Island Project in 2021 and is now focused on advancement of the project through a prefeasibility study while continuing exploration within this highly prospective land package.
