Doré Copper Mining Corp Obtains More High-Grade Copper from its Corner Bay Property in Quebec

Results included 6.2 meters (m) of 5.8% copper, 0.5 grams per tonne (g/t) gold and 32.2 g/t silver

Doré Copper Mining Corp announced additional high-grade copper results from the remaining holes of the 2021 drilling campaign at its flagship Corner Bay property in Quebec, which included 6.2 meters (m) of 5.8% copper, 0.5 grams per tonne (g/t) of gold and 32.2 g/t of silver.

The company said the 2021 drill program continued to successfully extend copper-gold mineralization at Corner Bay in three areas of the deposit, bringing the total length to over 1,100m.

“We now have seven holes at the southern end of the upper Main Vein with impressive high-grade copper intercepts that exceed the average copper grade of the deposit by approximately 3%, with four of the seven holes grading more than 8% copper,” Ernest Mast, CEO of Doré Copper Mining, said in a statement.

“The addition of this zone and the recently announced zone connecting the main vein below the dyke to the deep lower lens is expected to add at least 1 million tonnes to the current high-grade mineral resources,” added Mast.

Doré Copper noted that the latest results will be included in an updated Mineral Resource estimate for Corner Bay for the Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) scheduled for the end of the first quarter of 2022.

It added that its 2022 45,000m infill drilling program at Corner Bay is underway, focusing on upgrading the inferred resource to the Indicated category for the feasibility study which will begin following the completion of the EEP.

Doré Copper Mining owns an extensive land package in the prolific Lac Doré/Chibougamau and Joe Mann mining camps which produced 1.6 billion pounds of copper and 4.4 million ounces of gold. The package includes 13 former producing mines, deposits and resource target areas within a 60 kilometer radius of the company’s Copper Rand plant.
