Cooper Metals Ltd (ASX:CPM) MD Ian Warland speaks with Proactive soon after announcing the company has received its strongest assay result to date from Brumby Ridge prospect at the Mt Isa East Copper-Gold Project in northwest Queensland with further strong results also in from Raven prospect. An initial RC drill hole intercepted 50 metres grading 1.32% copper from 80 metres including two metres at 6.1% copper and 0.23 g/t gold at Brumby Ridge — the best (assayed) drill intercept to date by Cooper Metals at Mt Isa East.
Warland said: “To say we are pleased with the results of the initial scout drilling on five copper-gold prospects is an understatement.
“The Brumby Ridge drill intercept is the single strongest mineralised intercept drilled by Cooper Metals in the last two years.
“Raven continues to expand with another great intercept into a home-grown conceptual target. These two prospects are now the company’s main focus and are being followed up as we speak, as Cooper continues to test its pipeline of quality copper-gold prospects in the region.
“This cluster of prospects, including Mafic Sweats South, are only around 30 kilometres to the southeast of Mt Isa, close to infrastructure and worthy of further priority investigation and exploration by Cooper.”
