Rockcliff Copper reports its recently completed surface geophysical survey has identified a large untested conducive plate below the historical Pen Zinc Deposit partially located on their Penex Zinc property near Snow Lake. The property is located approximately 4.5 kilometers southwest of Hudbay’s Lalor Mine and less than 200 meters from Hudbay’s up-dip near surface portion of the historic high grade unmined Pen zinc deposit.
Rockcliff President Ken Lapierre says their Penex Zinc property covers the down dip continuation of the Pen Zinc deposit where it crosses onto their property at approximately 300 meters vertical. He says with their geophysical survey identifying a strong untested conductive plate immediately below the known deposit and continuing to at depth of at least 800 meters vertical bodes well for high grade zinc mineralization to continue on the property. He adds they will continue to explore and prepare the property for a planned drill program later this year.
