Rockcliff Copper Corporation has agreed to purchase the Morgan Lake, Woosey Lake and Cook Lake properties collectively called the Morgan property. They are located in the Snow Lake mining camp and are being purchased from Copper Reef Mining Corporation.
Rockcliff’s President and CEO Ken Lapierre says the Morgan property hosts high grade zinc and gold zones within trucking distance to operating milling operations centered in the Snow Lake mining camp. He says the acquisition is in line with their strategy of acquiring the highest grade unmined copper, zinc and gold properties available in the camp that have excellent growth potential. He says they look forward to advancing their understanding of the property’s potential through compilation of existing historical data followed by exploration programs in 2017. The Morgan property hosts the historical gold rich Morgan zinc deposit documented as having between a total of 272 thousand tonnes grading 15 percent zinc and 3.42 percent gold and 200 thousand tonnes grading 8 percent zinc.
