Columbus Copper Corp. (TSXV:CCU) provided the results of the 2013 drilling program at its Karapinar copper-moly project, located in Turkey, noting that drill hole KDH028 includes 31.2 meters of 0.45-percent copper and 0.08 grams per tonne (g/t) gold from 269 meters, 9 meters of 0.48-percent copper and 0.06 g/t gold from 312.5 meters and 68 meters of 0.36-percent copper and 0.08 g/t gold from 379 meters.
As quoted in the press release:
Drill-hole KDH028 was the last from the Phase I drilling program and targeted sulfide mineralization where recent drilling demonstrated an increase in primary copper at depth, as exemplified by drill-hole KDH026 that intersected 19.6 meters of 0.50% copper, 0.15 g/t gold and 0.0103% molybdenum from 181.10 meters depth and drill-hole KDH027 that intersected 153.7 meters of 0.48% copper, 0.10 g/t gold and 0.0142% molybdenum from 91.3 meters depth and 49.35 meters of 0.47% copper, 0.12 g/t gold and 0.0087% molybdenum from 408 meters depth respectively. The above intervals represent primary copper grade intercepts and can all be attributed to intervals in potassic (K-Feldspar) alteration and quartz-chalcopyrite-magnetite mineralization (see news release of May 30th, 2013).
A similar mineralization style to KDH027 has now been intersected in drill-hole KDH028, collared 230 meters to the west, suggesting continuity of the higher primary grade zone to the west and northwest. Drill-hole KDH028 intersected 31.2 meters of 0.45% copper, 0.08 g/t gold and 0.0075% molybdenum from 269 meters depth,9 meters of 0.48% copper, 0.06 g/t gold and 0.0065% molybdenum from 312.5 meters depth, and 68 meters of 0.36% copper, 0.08 g/t gold and 0.0085% molybdenum from 379 meters depth. The drill-hole also intersected a skarn interval of 10.8 meters at 0.57% copper and 0.08 g/t gold from 573 meters depth.
