The company’s CEO, Richard Williams stated that this drill program allows the team to accelerate the South Crofty Feasibility Study in advance of dewatering the mine and will provide key information for the mineral processing flowsheet, especially the amenability of the mineralised zones to ore sorting which, if successful, will present an opportunity to deliver higher grade feed and reduce the size of a process plant.

The South Crofty project covers the former producing South Crofty tin mine located beneath the towns of Pool and Camborne, Cornwall. The South Crofty mine closed in 1998, following more than 400 years of continuous production.

South Crofty comprises metasediments that covers an intrusive granite body and typically hosts vein structures that containi polymetallic copper – tin – zinc mineralisation, whereas the underlying granite hosts structures that are predominantly tin.

Cornish Metals Inc. is focused on advancing its high-grade South Crofty underground tin project through to a feasibility study, as well as exploring its additional mineral rights located in Cornwall, SW England.

Cornish Metals Inc. is trading steady at $0.44 a share as of 12:15 p.m. ET.
