Nuinsco Reports Initial Drilling Results Further Demonstrate Scale of Berta Copper Anomaly in Turkey
Nuinsco Resources Limited (NWI.TO) today announced the initial results from the diamond drilling program conducted on the Berta Project in Turkey during the autumn of 2012. The work program was operated by the Company's joint venture partner Xstrata Copper. The Berta Project is a copper porphyry target which is reputed to be the largest copper anomaly in the Turkish Pontides metals belt - as such it is an attractive and prospective exploration target.
A total of six diamond drill holes were completed in a work program that follows-up on the widespread and very anomalous copper mineralization identified in previous work programs.
Drill hole SD-12-12 of the 2012 program was drilled to a depth of 733.2m on the western side of the anomalous copper-in-soil anomaly where it intersected altered and copper-mineralized dacite throughout that included 280.8m (from 312m down-hole) grading 0.09% copper. On the central-eastern margin of the anomalous copper-in-soil anomaly, collared approximately 1.8km east of SD-12-12, DDH SD-12-13 was drilled to a depth of 926m and intersected 354.6m (starting from 571.4m down-hole) which averaged 0.14% copper.
