Bell Copper (BCU) has discovered additional copper in porphyry at its Big Sandy Project.

Hole BS-3 encountered the chalcopyrite-pyrite-molybdenite mineralization. It tested an area of high electrical conductivity detected in an earlier magneto-telluric survey on the Arizona property.

Disseminated chalcocite mineralization began at an inclined depth of 1,302 m and extended beyond 1,589 m.

Geological logging, sawing and sampling of the chalcopyrite-bearing interval from 1,776-1,919 m is underway.

The company has submitted samples up to a depth of 1,776 m for assay.

Next steps include drilling BS-3A, a 500 m offset to BS-3 from the same pad.

BS-3 is gradually entering the chalcopyrite-molybdenite zone at the heart of this porphyry system,” stated Tim Marsh, Bell Copper’s President and CEO. “The homogeneity of sericite-pyrite alteration over hundreds of meters of core now in the box speaks to the strength and size of the Big Sandy system.”

“It is likely that we will be able to complete multiple 500 m step-out holes from this same drill pad, and also test the concept of a thick chalcocite blanket overlying the inferred heart of the porphyry system from a new drill pad 900 m south of the BS-3 pad,” he added.

Bell Copper is a mineral exploration company focused on large copper deposits in Arizona.

Bell Copper (BCU) is up by 33.33 per cent trading at $0.64 per share as of 12:58 pm EST.
