VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Canada, July 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Allied Copper Corp. (TSX-V: CPR, OTCQB: CPRRF) (the “Company” or “Allied Copper”), is pleased to announce the completion of an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) magnetic survey at the Klondike Property (“Klondike”), located in southwestern Colorado, United States. A total of 213 line kilometres of surveying was completed at the property in order to help prioritize drill targets for future campaigns. The Klondike Property consists of 76 unpatented mining claims, a State of Colorado Exploration Permit, and an exclusive right to a State lease.
The recently completed survey was conducted using a drone-mounted magnetometer collecting data on 50 metre line spacings to provide a high-resolution data set to assist in targeting drilling at the Northeast Fault, West Graben Fault and East Graben Fault targets (Figure 1). The data from the current program is being evaluated to target potential structures and alteration associated with copper mineralization.
Warner Uhl, Chairman of Allied Copper commented, “The completion of the UAV magnetic survey enables our technical team to finalize the high priority targets for the July drilling campaign at Klondike and gives us a strong understanding of the potential for our asset. We are excited to complete this and are looking forward to seeing the drill bit turning in the coming weeks”.
About the Klondike Property
The Klondike Property is located within San Miguel County approximately 25 km (15.6 miles) South of Naturita, Colorado. It lies within the Paradox Copper Belt of Western Colorado, host to the operational Lisbon Valley Copper Mine approximately 50 km (31 miles) to the NW. The property consists of 76 unpatented lode claims and a State Mineral Lease totaling 874 hectares (2,216.63 acres). Historic rock-chip sampling from visible copper mineralization in outcrop across the Klondike Property has returned assay values as high as 6.3% copper in sandstones of the Cutler and Morrison formations along the east and west bounding faults of the Klondike Graben. The Klondike Property is accessible by an all-weather County Road that links to a network of unimproved dirt roads throughout the project area.
