Doré Copper (DCMC) has released results from the 2021 drilling program completed at its flagship Corner Bay property in Québec.

The report included results from 11 of the 17 drill holes completed, which totaled 13,250 metres of drilling.

The company announced the discovery of high grades of copper and gold in the main vein of the property, which extends the Corner Bay deposit along strike by 200 metres.

Results from the main vein included

  • 05 per cent copper, 0.15 g/t gold and 11.3 g/t silver over 3.7 metres;
  • 47 per cent copper, 0.87 g/t gold and 9.3 g/t silver over 3.7 metres; and
  • 46 per cent copper, 0.25 g/t gold and 8.4 g/t silver over 5.5 metres.

The drilling program also tested the extension of the west vein, located 400 meters west of the main vein, with four shallow holes.

The best intercepts from the west vein included

  • 31 per cent copper, 0.11 g/t gold, and 7.0 g/t silver over 4 metres and
  • 84 per cent copper, 0.32 g/t gold, and 6.25 g/t silver over 3.2 metres.

With these positive results, Doré Copper has expanded the 2021 drilling program to approximately 16,500 meters to test the mineralization further along strike.

Ernest Mast, president and CEO of Doré Copper, commented,

“We have expanded our drilling program to the south (along strike) to continue delineating the mineralization. We are planning to have an updated mineral resource estimate in early Q3 to support an eventual hub-and-spoke restart of the camp using our existing 2,700 tpd (tonnes per day) mill, with Corner Bay as the main feed to the mill.”

Results to date from the 2021 drilling program have successfully continued to expand the copper-gold mineralization at Corner Bay, bringing the total strike of the mineralization to over 900 meters.

Doré Copper is a copper-gold explorer and developer in the Chibougamau area of Québec.

Doré Copper Mining Corp. (DCMC) is up 4.85 per cent on the day, closing trading at $1.08 per share.
