Cyprium Metals Limited announced the results from the metallurgical diamond drilling programme at Hollandaire and Hollandaire West at the Cue Copper Project. Executive Director Mr Barry Cahill said that we are extremely pleased with the stunning highgrade drill results from our metallurgical drill programme at Hollandaire. The intercepts are all less than 100 metres vertical depth which are a reminder of the quality of the mineralised envelope at this project. We now await further assay results at Hollandaire West along with results from metallurgical test-work. Our geological team continues to increase its understanding of the controls of this high-grade copper mineralisation at the Cue Copper Project. The team are currently finalising the Phase 2 drilling at Hollandaire as well as completing regional soil sampling to refine our regional drill targets.

Drilling Highlights
- 10.4m @ 14.9% Cu in drill hole 19HOMET003 from 84.5m downhole including:
- 4.5m @ 21.9% Cu with 1.2 g/t Au and 46.4 g/t Ag from 90.4m;

- 19.1m @ 1.3% Cu in drill hole 19HOMET002 from 85.9m downhole including:
- 6.4m @ 2.1% Cu with 0.5 g/t Au and 10.5 g/t Ag from 98.6m;

- 27.9m @ 1.1% Cu in drill hole 19HOMET001 from 45.7m downhole including:
- 9.0m @ 1.6% Cu with 0.1 g/t Au and 2.3 g/t Ag from 63.2m.

The first hole in the programme 19HOMET001 was drilled into the Hollandaire West mineralisation and returned disseminated copper sulphide mineralisation, mainly containing chalcocite. The second and third holes in the programme, 19HOMET002 and 19HOMET003, targeted representative sections of the Hollandaire mineralisation and returned massive sulphide mineralisation, containing massive pyrite and copper sulphide mineralisation, as predominantly chalcocite with minor chalcopyrite and bornite. The intersection returned in 19HOMET003 is the highest-grade intersection encountered in the mineralised zone to date.
