Exploration Update – Brunton Pass Copper Project, Nevada, USA
Wednesday, August 18th, 2021
Tertiary Minerals plc is pleased to provide the following exploration update on its 100% owned Brunton Pass Copper Project in Nevada, USA
➢ Rock samples from northern half of claim block contain up to 6.84% copper and 1.75 grammes/tonne (g/t) gold in separate samples.
➢ Project wide soil sampling, drone magnetic and photogrammetric surveys completed:
➢ Multiple copper soil anomalies defined associated with extensive skarn and hornfels alteration.
➢ Mercury soil anomalies and rock samples suggest additional potential for epithermal gold and silver.
➢ Interpretation of drone aeromagnetic data provides structural framework for mineralisation.
➢ Follow-up trenching programme planned.
Commenting today, Executive Chairman Patrick Cheetham said:
“Our systematic exploration at Brunton Pass has highlighted multiple zones of copper-skarn mineralisation with a possible overprint of mercury mineralisation which may represent the high levels of an epithermal system prospective for gold and silver. This is shaping up as a priority target and we look forward to reporting further exploration results from this exciting prospect alongside the follow up trenching underway at our Pyramid Gold-Silver Project in Nevada and the recently optioned copper projects in Zambia.”
