Cyprium Metals Limited (CYM.ASX, 19cps, m.cap A$8.5m with 44.7m SOI, Cash $3.6m, Copper Developer)

  • Cyprium have announced the completion of the Phase 1 Reverse Circulation extensional drilling programme totalling 4,038 metres at Hollandaire and Hollandaire West at the Cue Copper Project. 
  • The majority of the Phase 1 Hollandaire drilling programme has been focused on the Hollandaire West copper mineralisation to test for shallow extensions.
  • The locations of the drill hole collars at the Hollandaire and Hollandaire West copper mineralisation are shown in Figure 1. The red outline is the current mineralisation outline projected to the surface against drill-hole collars for extensional drilling.
  • Several drill holes in this initial programme are being used for down-hole geophysics, to further assist in the planning of the subsequent phases of extensional drilling to expand the copper mineralisation, which remains open to the south, west and at depth.
  • The samples obtained from the diamond drilling will be used for initial column test-work to determine the optimal extraction method for copper mineralisation at the project. The mineralised intersections and samples returned to date are consistent with the drill programme designs.
  • The diamond drill core in Images 2 and 3 show consecutive drill core trays in 19HOMET003 from 86.5m to 93.1m depth below the surface.
  • The drill core in image 2 contains quartz veins with massive chalcocite and garnets, occurring with bands of massive pyrite, chalcocite and chalcopyrite.
  • Image 3 shows drill core containing massive chalcocite in a quartz vein, garnets in foliated quartz and a section of massive pyrite, chalcocite and chalcopyrite.
  • Image 4 is a detail view of the drill core from 90.5m to 90.8m and 91.4m to 91.7m showing the garnet foliated quartz and massive pyrite, chalcocite and chalcopyrite.
