Rockfire Resources said that initial soil sampling, rock sampling and geological mapping had been completed at the Copper Dome porphyry copper project in Australia's Queensland state. Rockfire had an option to acquire Copper Dome, which expires on 23 May. A total of 176 soil samples and 34 rock samples had been submitted to the laboratory for analysis.

Chief executive David Price said that 'This initial program of work at Copper Dome has provided our field crews with a good understanding of the specific issues relevant to a new project including access, terrain, geomorphology, outcrop distribution, geology and surface mineralization. The soil and rock samples will provide a great snapshot of the overall potential of the prospect to deliver a project of scale. Results obtained from the soil and rock sampling will assist Rockfire's pending decision whether to exercise the option to acquire Copper Dome, a decision which is required by May 2019.'
