Drill program exceeds Rockcliff's expectations

Apr 27, 2020

Rockcliff Metals Corporation is pleased to announce the completion of a successful winter drill program on its 100% owned Tower Property.  Drilling has intersected high-grade copper extensions along strike to the south and at depth outside of the current limits of the high-grade Tower Deposit. The Tower Deposit mineralization strike length is now over 900 metres (“m”) and has been intersected to depths of over 600 m. It remains open along strike to the south and at depth.

Rockcliff’s President and CEO Alistair Ross commented: “We are extremely pleased to report that our 2020 winter drill program has exceeded expectations. The Tower Deposit is presently one of the highest grade unmined deposits in the prolific Flin Flon-Snow Lake greenstone belt and our 2020 drilling to-date has confirmed the exceptional  potential to extend the known mineralization of the deposit.  The drill program intersected high-grade  copper  mineralization south of the known Tower Deposit limits where hole TP20-080 intersected 4.88%  CuEq across a down hole width of 13.53 m including 12.42% CuEq across 2.66 m.  The deposit remains open to the south  and appears to be following the flanks of a geophysical conductive anomaly which has an additional strike length of over one kilometre. Additional mineralization was also identified at depth where several holes (TP20-065, 068 and 069) intersected high-grade copper mineralization associated with extensive geophysical conductive anomalies below the  existing Tower Deposit.  We look forward to this spring and summer when we will recommence drilling at Tower with a view of expanding the known mineralization.”

Twenty four drill holes totalling 10,176 m were completed in the 2020 winter drill program.
