Consolidated Woodjam Copper Corp. said Aug. 14 that it discovered a new zone of copper mineralization at its Woodjam copper-gold property in British Columbia.
The new zone, called Canyon, is about 9 kilometers northwest of the Three Firs zone, and a composite grab sample of one vein returned 7.51% copper, 356.0 parts per million of silver and 589 parts per billion of gold.
Two samples of malachite-stained basalt outcropping 35 meters and 185 meters distant from the vein assayed 1,989 ppm of copper and 2,168 ppm of copper. Five rock samples were collected.
A 2017 exploration program using induced polarization is planned for later in the season following the cessation of the forest fire risk.
