VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / January 10, 2022 / BCM Resources Corporation (TSX-V:B), the "Company," is pleased to announce that Diamond Drilling has resumed at the Thompson Knolls ("TK") porphyry copper-gold-molybdenum project in southwestern Utah.
The Company's new drilling contractor Falcon Drilling, the "Contractor" has started drilling TK3a in the proximity of the previously drilled TK3, which reached copper-molybdenum mineralization in the interval between 452 m and 558 m. The drill was stopped in mineralization due to complications experienced by the previous drillers. The mineralization intercepted in this drill hole has a distinctive porphyry style with dominant copper mineralization within the marbleized host rock dolomites and mineralized stockwork hosted by underlying quartz-monzonite porphyry. The northwestern flank of the TK project has coincident AMT and IP anomaly which will be tested by drillhole TK3a to the currently permitted depth of 3,600 feet (1,097 meters).
In December, the Contractor completed drilling of hole TK4 in the southern flank of the Thompson Knolls magnetic anomaly. The drillhole went to a depth of 1,421 feet (433 meters) intercepting a quartz-monzonite porphyry intrusion at depth of 633 feet (193 meters). The intrusive rock contains quartz veinlets within intervals of argillic, quartz-sericitic, and potassic alteration. The hydrothermal alteration in the quartz-monzonite porphyry confirms the presence of conductive rocks previously outlined by the AMT survey.
TK is located approximately 200 km southwest of Rio Tinto's giant Bingham Canyon porphyry copper-molybdenum-gold mine and smelter complex near Salt Lake City, Utah.
The Company's Director, Mr. Richard R. Redfern, M.Sc., and Certified Professional Geologist, a 'qualified person' for the purposes of National Instrument 43-101, has verified and approved the information contained in this news release.
