Toronto, ON / ACCESSWIRE/ August 26, 2014 / Moag Copper Gold Resources Inc. ("Moag")(CSE:MOG) announced today the first diamond drillhole (14-934-01) of Moag's drilling campaign on its Mace property in the west of Ireland was completed at a depth of 206.5M on August 8, 2014. The drill core, which intersected pyrite, chalcopyrite and molybdenite linked to quartz veining in altered granite, is currently being logged geologically and prepared for analysis. The water returns and fine sediments (<75 micron 'sludge') were sampled at 3m intervals to 83.5m down hole (when water return was lost) and submitted to ALS Global Laboratories in Loughrea, Ireland for analysis.

Geochemical analyses of the sludge samples have returned anomalous results for coincident molybdenum (Mo) and copper (Cu) in the fine fraction, with maxima of 0.57% Mo, 0.223% Cu for the 3m returns from 49-52m down hole. Elevated Cu-Mo levels were reported throughout the 10m-83.5m interval. It must be stated that the sludge sampling is a relatively crude methodology, but was carried out to indicate the levels of Cu-Mo reporting in the finer sample fractions. The results of the drill core analysis for 14-934-01 will be reported in due course. Diamond hole 14-934-02 is currently being drilled in continuation of the planned program.
