VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / January 22, 2019 / Tasca Resources Ltd. (“Tasca”, “TAC” or the “Company”) (TSX Venture: TAC) (Frankfurt: 3TA) is pleased to report the results of the winter 2018 diamond drilling program at its Poplar copper property, southwest of Houston, British Columbia. Key take aways:
- 18-PC-126 was mineralized from top of bedrock to full depth, averaging 0.365% Cu, 0.015% Mo, 0.145g/t Au and 2.31 g/t Ag over 380.97 metres. The last 30.17 metres contained the strongest mineralization: 0.554% Cu, 0.027% Mo, 0.104g/t Au and 4.44 g/t Ag; indicating the historic IP conclusion of mineralization continuing to depth appears valid.
- 18-PC-127 was mineralized from top of bedrock to full depth, averaging 0.421% Cu, 0.013% Mo, 0.105g/t Au and 2.63 g/t Ag over 264.86 metres, including a 27 metre interval averaging 0.643% Cu, 0.030% Mo, 0.146g/t Au and 2.62 g/t Ag.
- 18-PC-127 intersected 0.330% Cu, 0.002 % Mo, 0.118 g/t Au and 3.46 g/t Ag over 151.10 metres between 122.8 metres and 273.9 metres
- Mineralization consists of both dissemination pyrite and chalcopyrite and stockwork vein to veinlet pyrite, chalcopyrite and molybdenite.
The purpose of the 2018 program was to extend to depth and expand the known mineralization: 18-PC-126 extended PC-22 from 184.1 metres to 404.47 metres ending in mineralization; 18-PC-127 extended PC-24 from 214.6 metres to 270.36 metres ending in mineralization; 18-PC-127 extended PC-19 from 188.1 metres to 273.9 metres. These three widely spaced holes also provided material for future metallurgical sampling.
