Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - April 5, 2022) - District Copper Corp. (TSXV: DCOP) ("District Copper", "District", or the "Company") is pleased to provide shareholders an update on exploration plans for its Copper Keg porphyry copper project located approximately 55 kms west of Kamloops British Columbia. The property covers approximately 3,272 ha and is located at the north end of the Guichon Creek batholith. Highlights of the program are:
- The IP and Airborne surveys combined with the 2021 surface mapping program have identified two large target areas of porphyry style mineralization.
- The results of the above studies indicate that these targets are hosted in Guichon intrusives and Nicola Group volcanics. One of the targets exhibits a strong spatial association with the Barnes Creek fault, a regional scale structure that crosses the property.
- Interpretation of the above survey results strongly indicate that the structural geology of the property is significantly more complex than indicated on published regional scale maps.
- A full Magnetic Vector Inversion of the airborne magnetic data is nearing completion and will be used to assist in selection of areas for follow-up work.
- A surface mapping program is planned to "ground truth" the results of the above studies prior to selecting drilling targets.
Mr. Jevin Werbes President and Chief Executive officer of District Copper stated; "The exploration work completed to date has identified two high priority targets exhibiting advanced argillic alteration and sporadic primary and secondary copper mineralization. The results of our work located several circular magnetic features underlying the property, the source of which should be explained prior to planning a drilling program. The objective of our next program is to locate and map the geology of the area overlying these magnetic features to improve drilling efficiency and chance of success."
The mapping program is planned to cover the two target areas to better understand the structural geology of these areas and assess the potential of a buried porphyry system. The mapping will focus on lithology, alterations, and mineral associations. These features are expected to provide indications of location within the interpreted porphyry system. The mapping program is expected to commence when weather and ground conditions allow.
Chris M. Healey, P.Geo., Chief Geologist, and a Director of District Copper Corp., is the qualified person under NI 43-101 guidelines who is responsible for the technical content of this release, and consents to its release.
