Manning Ventures Copper Geochemical Zone at Copper Hill

Must Read

The company is currently planning a Phase 1 drilling program at Copper Hill.

Manning Ventures Inc. announced that it has received all geochemical analyses from ALS Global for the soil chemistry program conducted at the 896.3-hectare (2,215-acre) Copper Hill Project located 40 km northeast of Hawthorne, Nevada, USA.

The soil geochemistry program consisted of 216 samples collected along north-south lines 90 m (300 ft) apart, and samples collected at stations spaced 60 m (200 ft) apart.

In addition to the laboratory’s internal quality control procedures, a program was used to include Certified Reference Materials (CRM) into the sampling stream.

The program is designed to evaluate and expand the copper skarn mineralization occurring at Copper Hill.

This geochemical data was combined with recent historical gravity and magnetic data to assist the Company in identifying suitable targets for evaluation through diamond exploration.

The geochemical study results identified two anomalous geochemical trends. In the northern part of the grid, there is a prominent east-west trending zone of anomalous iron, copper and gold, and in the southwestern part of the grid, there is a prominent northwest trending zone of anomalous tungsten, molybdenum and arsenic. Together, these anomalous zones form a broad halo surrounding the mountain called Copper Hill.

The northern part of the grid shows a broad east-west trending area characterized by copper, iron, and gold anomalies. This east-west trend extends for 800 m and is up to 200 m wide. The area is parallel to a series of interpreted structural lines identified by previous magnetic studies.

The second anomalous trend occurs in the southwestern part of the grid, where tungsten, molybdenum and arsenic appear more concentrated in the northwest-trending area parallel to the interpreted structural lines.

The company is encouraged by the results of the geochemical study as this data improves its understanding of the skarn mineralization occurring there.
