Cordoba Minerals Updates Drilling, Earn-In at Bell Copper's Perseverance Porphyry Copper Project – Yahoo Finance

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – March 17, 2022) – Bell Copper Corporation (TSXV: BCU) (OTCQB: BCUFF) ("Bell Copper" or the "Company") reports that Cordoba Minerals Corp. (TSXV: CDB) (OTCQB: CDBMF) (Cordoba) has provided an update on drilling at the Perseverance Project and informed the Company that they have expended enough via exploration activities to earn 51% of the project. Bell's Perseverance Project is located in northwestern Arizona, USA and is under a Joint Venture – Earn-In.
Drillhole K-21, an angle hole which also targeted the northern of the two prominent magneto-telluric (MT) anomalies on the property, encountered caving ground that prevented its completion through covering gravel. Drillhole K-22 was drilled vertically early in 2022 from a site located directly above the center of the prominent north-trending 1 kilometer by 2 kilometer electrical conductor, located 1.3 kilometers north of K-20. The covering gravel, totaling 192 meters in thickness, was drilled and cased off by a dual rotary drill using a downhole hammer. A diamond core drill completed K-22 to a depth of 1262 meters, cutting clay-altered, sericitized, and propylitically altered Precambrian host rocks and Laramide-age porphyry dikes. Short intervals of the hole were characterized by potassic alteration, including both K-feldspar and shreddy biotite, accompanied by disseminated chalcopyrite (copper sulfide) mineralization. Assays of the hole are expected in about two months. The cause of the prominent MT anomaly is believed to be abundant clay alteration in strongly broken, water-rich basement rocks.
Before any drilling on the prominent eastern MT anomaly is done, Cordoba will run a radial version of the proprietary Typhoon IP survey, using an electrode set deep in K-22 as the current injection point. Surface receivers will extend 1.0 to 1.5 kilometers in several directions radially outward from K-22. This survey is expected to highlight volumes of rock containing more abundant disseminated sulfide minerals that might better indicate porphyry copper mineralization.
Perseverance Earn-in
Cordoba Minerals, through their recent drilling and geophysical survey programs on the Perseverance Project, have expended $3 million prior to the April 24, 2022 earn-in deadline for Phase II of the Joint Venture and Earn-In Agreement with Bell. Achievement of this Phase II milestone earns Cordoba control of 51% of the Project, with Bell's ownership reduced to 49%. With further expenditures on the Project of $3 million before April 24, 2024, Cordoba can earn a total 70% interest in the Project, and with yet another $10 million in expenditures before April 24, 2026, a total 80% interest.
Bell Copper President & CEO Dr. Tim Marsh stated, "K-22 was drilled 1300 meters north of K-20, the last Perseverance hole to peer beneath cover. Aside from the more pervasive clay alteration at K-22, both K-20 and K-22 cut multiple porphyry dikes, local polymetallic base metal veins (Zn-Cu-Pb), long intervals of propylitic alteration, and early chalcopyrite-bearing veinlets sporting K-feldspar jackets. Cordoba saw enough heat in K-22 to wrap up the Phase II earn in and plan future work. Cordoba's next step is running a radial version of their proprietary Typhoon IP survey which is expected to highlight volumes of rock more likely to carry copper sulfide minerals. Meanwhile, Bell Copper will keep advancing our porphyry copper discovery at Big Sandy."
