Braveheart Intersects 19.8% Copper over 0.6 Metres at Bull River Mine Project – Potential for expansion of mine life
June 7, 2021
Calgary, Alberta–(Newsfile Corp. – June 7, 2021) – Braveheart Resources Inc. (TSXV: BHT) (OTCQB:RIINF) (2ZR:FRA) (“Braveheart” or the “Company“) is pleased to report that it has intersected high grade copper mineralization at the Bull River Mine project.
H1 2021 Drill Program at Bull River Mine
- BRU-21-01intersected 19.79% copper and 98.6 g/t silver over 0.6 metres within a broader intersection of 5.12% copper, 28.6 g/t silver and 0.63 g/t gold over 3.4 metres. This intersection does not represent the true width of the structure.
- All four holes that have been drilled to-date as part of the 2021 drilling program have intersected mineralized structures below the current workings of the mine which are only 350 metres below the portal.
- The Company has now intersected mineralized structures approximately 550 metres below the portal. To-date assays have been received on only one of the four holes drilled.
The purpose of the H1 2021 drilling program and subsequent drilling in H2 2021will be to test the down dip extension of the vein systems under the current workings. Approximately 1,000 metres of drilling is planned for the second quarter of 2021. This program was originally initiated in March 2020 but suspended due to health and safety protocols resulting from the onset of COVID 19 after the completion of 831 metres of drilling.
The Company plans to follow-up on the results of the 2020 drilling program and on several historical diamond drill holes that are located below the current workings. One historical drill hole, BRU00-035, that is located below and to the east of the current resource model of the Main South Vein, yielded a composite average of 2.86% Cu over 9.9 metres including 4.27% Cu over 6.0 metres. A second historical drill hole, BRU09-10 yielded a composite average of 3.21% Cu, 21.29 g/t Ag and 1.18 g/t Au over 4.15 metres. These values do not represent true widths. All holes in the 2020 program were drilled from underground workings on 9 Level and collared in 9E4XC Ext Re-muck. All five holes from the spring 2020 program intersected mineralized structures in the central portion of the South Vein at depths of approximately 115 metres below 9 Level, which represented the deepest level of the mine about 350 metres below the elevation of the mine portal prior to the 2021 program.
Ian Berzins, President and CEO, commented “We are extremely pleased with the initial results from this year’s drill program. Not only have we intersected high-grade copper mineralization below our current workings, but the silver and gold values appear to be increasing at depth relative to our current NI 43-101 Mineral Resource which was completed in January 2019 by Sue Bird of Moose Mountain Minerals”.
