NorthWest Copper (NWST) has initiated the first drill program at the company’s East Niv property in central British Columbia.

An initial program of 11 holes for a total of 2,750 metres is planned.

In addition to diamond drilling, the company is continuing to explore the broader East Niv region and carrying out fieldwork to identify additional new targets for follow-up.

Peter Bell, President & CEO of NorthWest Copper commented on the drill program.

“This drill program marks the first real tests of the East Niv system. East Niv represents a unique opportunity for the discovery of a brand-new copper-gold porphyry, in central British Columbia. We are extremely excited to initiate this drill program. Strongly mineralized showings and a big geophysical signature outline the potential scale and grade of this new prospect, which is perfectly situated in a region renowned for large copper-gold deposits and decades of production. We look forward to keeping the market updated as we test the property further with drilling.”

Located approximately 40 kilometres south of the Kemess mine complex, the East Niv Property covers 43,297 hectares of highly prospective ground. Outcropping copper-gold mineralization and coincident induced polarization, magnetic and soil geochemical anomalies outline a compelling 3.5 square kilometre, multi-parameter porphyry copper-gold target.

NorthWest Copper is a new diversified copper-gold explorer and developer with an exciting pipeline of projects in British Columbia. With a portfolio in a tier-one jurisdiction, Northwest Copper is well-positioned to participate fully in a strengthening global copper market.

Northwest Copper Corp. (NWST) opened trading at C$0.74 per share.
