Tower Resources Commences Drilling on Prime Porphyry Cu-Au Target Between New Afton and Highland Valley Mines
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - December 2, 2021) - Tower Resources Ltd. (TSXV: TWR) ("Tower" or the "Company") is pleased to report that diamond drilling has commenced on the exciting new porphyry Cu-Au target (see press release dated November 12, 2021) on the Company's Rabbit North porphyry Cu-Au property near Kamloops, B.C. (see figure 1).
The Rabbit North property is strategically located between the two producing porphyry deposits of the Kamloops district, New Gold's New Afton underground Cu-Au mine to the east and Teck's Highland Valley open pit Cu-Mo mine to the west (see figure 1). Importantly, the property contains a fertile intrusion, the Durand Stock, similar to the one at New Afton. The exposed core of this stock, at high elevations, has been explored for 50 years, resulting in the discovery of numerous Cu-Au showings.
The lower slopes, around the more prospective rim of the stock, are thickly covered by glacial till and thus essentially unexplored. This summer, Tower sampled the till and identified a classic gold grain dispersal train (see figure 2) that is stronger than any known trains associated with glaciated porphyry Cu-Au deposits, including the giant Pebble deposit in Alaska. The objective of the present drilling program is to locate and probe the near-surface mineral deposit that produced this unparalleled dispersal train.
Seven potential drill sites have been selected near the head of the dispersal train, and the Company has received a permit to drill holes at all seven sites. It is hoped that up to three holes can be completed before the Christmas break. The drill area is accessible year-round and drilling is expected to resume as soon as the results from the initial holes have been assessed.
