Foran Mining Corporation reports its latest infill drill hole has delivered one of the widest intercepts of continuous high grade copper mineralization to date during its ongoing 30 thousand meter drill program. They note this continues to define a band of copper rich mineralization in both the Massive Suphide lens and the underlying Copper Stockwork Zone at the McIlvenna Bay Deposit 65 kilometers west of Flin Flon. The hole encountered 40 meters of mineralization over 45 meters including 29 meters of continuous mineralization grading 2.05 percent copper equivalent.
Executive Chair of Foran Dan Myerson says it provides them with additional optimism in their ability to expand the indicated category resource and therefore further increase the mine life at McIlvenna Bay. He adds these strong results bode well for future mining costs and ultimate economics as they optimize the throughput of their envisioned mill within the Hanson Lake District and prove out the value of McIlvenna Bay and this multi-generational camp.
