Kumo Resources has recently signed an agreement with the drill contractor, Norse Drilling AS, for the fully permitted 1,200 metre program on the Frostmoen copper project, expected to commence mid-September.
The maiden drill program will test the depth continuity of high-grade copper identified at surface in trenching and saw-cut channel sampling. Surface trench results and channel samples include:
Trench TN02 ended in strong mineralization to the NW where the mineralization dips underneath a bog. With the two highest grading individual half metre samples (7.2% and 7.6% Cu) located within 10 metres of the bog. A subsequent Induced Polarisation (IP) survey identified a significant chargeability anomaly directly below surface mineralization and the bog, the chargeability anomaly continues at depth.. The goal of the drill program is four-fold:
Test for the continuity of the copper mineralization at depth;
Test the presence of the basal contact at depth. Most often this is the area with the strongest accumulation of mineralization in sediment-hosted copper systems. The basal contact has thus far not been observed at surface on the Frostmoen project;
Improve our understanding of the (complex) structural setting, and;
Test the viability of using IP as a direct targeting tool to detect Cu mineralization.
Sam Walding, managing director of Kumo Resources, commented: “We are excited to commence the upcoming drill program at the previously unexplored Frostmoen project. The aim of the program will be to test the notable Cu mineralization identified in surface trenching and channel sampling campaigns, along with a coincident strong chargeability anomaly. We believe the Frostmoen sediment-hosted Cu project offers significant exploration potential and we look forward to updating stakeholders with the results as the drilling progresses in the months ahead.”
