QC Copper intersects 0.72% CuEq over 27M at Cooke-Robitaille

Apr 2, 2024

QC Copper and Gold Inc. is pleased to announce drill results from its 2024 winter drilling program on the past producing Cooke and Robitaille mines trend. This drill program represents QC Copper's pivot towards resource expansion beyond what was published in Mineral Resource Estimate of January 8, 2024 when is defined Canada's Highest Grade Open Pit Copper Deposit.

This drill program tested the extension between Cooke and Robitaille and identified mineralization continuity between the two past-producing mines. The results from the four holes indicate that Cooke and Robitaille may be connected, and they show similar high-grade and long intersections to those seen at the Springer and Perry zones. These results suggest that there is potential for significant growth outside of the current Opemiska pit that could be contemplated for future economic studies. 

"The most recent drilling on the Cooke-Robitaille trend confirms expectations that this mineralized trend, which extends nearly two kilometres, is likely to provide additional pit-delineated mineral resources on the edges and lateral extensions of the Robitaille and Cooke mines. Moreover, results from hole COR-24-18, collared just north of Elsie Lake in an area of previously exposed surface mineralization, shows good mineralization within the Beaver Lake Fault, said Charles Beaudry, VP Exploration and Director of QC Copper and Qualified Person as defined in NI43-101." He added that "there is an expectation that an extension at depth of the Robitaille mine could be found on the west side of the Beaver Lake Fault which is something that will be tested in the next phase of drilling."
