QC Copper intersects 'Opemiska-Style' mineralization at Cooke-Robitaille property

Feb 14, 2024

QC Copper and Gold Inc. is pleased to announce that it has completed an initial four-hole drill program on the Cooke and Robitaille mines corridor, adjacent the Opemiska Open Pit, which was defined as deposit Canada's Highest Grade Open Pit Copper Deposit, as per its Mineral Resource Estimate published on January 8, 2024.

The visual results from this drill program confirm significant widths of mineralization. Although assays are pending, the Company's experience in the district defining open-pit type material these results are encouraging. This drill program targeted step-out areas of interest that could contain new resources with sufficient widths for open-pit mining. Very little drilling into the Gwillim Fault Complex has been done, and the structure extends over 15 kilometres within the greater Opemiska Project Property.

"QC Copper is just starting to evaluate and define near-surface resources beyond what is currently in our open pit. Over the past few years, our focus has been almost exclusively on delineating the current open pit. Now, we can pivot towards new growth as we have always seen significant resource expansion possibilities beyond our open pit. This includes the well-understood Cooke and Robitaille Mines and many other targets along the 15-kilometre stretch of the Gwillim Fault on our 25,000-hectare property. The Chapais-Chibgouamau district has traditionally been mined underground, however, QC Copper's results on our open pit demonstrate the opportunity for further reinterpretation, growth, and discovery," said Charles Beaudry, P.Geo and géo., Director and Vice President Exploration for QC Copper & Gold, a Qualified Person, as defined in National Instrument 43-101, Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects
