Copper Reef Mining Corporation (CSE: CZC) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has acquired a high grade zinc property in the Sherridon area of Manitoba by staking. The Copper Reef 100% owned Kississing Property has no underlying royalties.
In 1928, Callinan Flin Flon Mines Limited optioned the ground and carried out a magnetic survey and 2795 ft. of drilling. In addition, two shafts, six trenches, and numerous test pits were completed, outlining a 1500 feet long zone of mineralization. Massive sphalerite with galena and chalcopyrite outcrop at surface in the trenches.
|Trenche2s yielded assays of||2.7% Cu, 0.20oz/ton Au over 6.7 feet
19.0% Zn, 0.8% Cu, 3.5oz/ton Au over 2.5 feet
4.7% Zn, 0.9% Cu over 12.5 feet
7.4% Zn, 1.3% Cu over 8.2 feet
|Best drill intercepts were||20% Zn, 4.5% Pb, 1.5% Cu, and 5.50z/ton Ag over 10 feet
4.5% Cu over 6.5 feet
Caution: Grades reported are from the assessment files (Manitoba Assess File 90671) and are not NI 43-101 compliant and cannot be relied upon without verification. Further, the true widths of the sulphide intercepts from the drill holes are unknown. Massive sphalerite, chalcopyrite, and galena was observed by the writer in outcrop exposed in the trenches.
The property has subsequently been explored by various parties most notably Cominco, Granges Inc and Aur Resources in the late 70's, 80's and 90's respectively. At present, there is no current NI 43-101 calculated resource on the property. The property is located in the Sherridon Area, which produced over 8,000,000 tonnes of 2% copper and 2% zinc with gold and silver credits.
