Bell Copper Corporation announced an update from the Perseverance porphyry copper project, located in northwestern Arizona, USA.


Assay results from drill hole K-20, drilled vertically to a depth of 1,319 metres, returned anomalous copper values averaging 415 ppm copper over 595 metres (using a 200 ppm copper cut-off grade), beginning at a depth of 683 metres. This long intercept of anomalous copper indicates that the hole intersected the peripheral part of a porphyry copper system.

K-20 drilling in conjunction with the Magneto-telluric data, collected by a previous Bell Copper joint venture partner, suggest that the centre of the porphyry copper system is located to the northeast of drill hole K-20, this is also verified by downhole acoustic televiewer measurements of fractures and vein-sets.

An MT survey will be performed to close off the existing deep conductive anomaly prior to further drilling. Diamond drilling is expected to recommence shortly thereafter.

Cordoba completes Phase 1 Earn In and has a 25% vested interest in the Perseverance project K-20 Diamond Drill Hole
