CopAur To Host Virtual Conference On Kinsley Mountain Developments
News Release – Vancouver, British Columbia – May 15, 2023: CopAur Minerals Inc. (“CopAur” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: CPAU) (OTCQB:COPAF) is pleased to announce it has finalized plans for an upcoming 3,000 metre (m) combined reverse circulation (RC) and diamond core drilling program at the Company’s flagship Kinsley Mountain Gold Project (the “Kinsley Mountain Project” or “Kinsley Mountain”) in Elko County, Nevada.
CEO Jeremy Yaseniuk stated, “The last drill program completed in 2020 yielded new surface oxide gold discoveries at Secret Spot and some of the highest grade near surface oxide gold ever intersected on the Project at Main Pit North, located only 75 metres outside our current resource pit shell. These have never been followed up on until now. Through execution of our planned 2023 drilling, we see a path forward to the expansion of near surface oxide gold resources, the potential for new near-mine discoveries through the testing of IP-geophysical anomalies, and continued demonstration of the quality of our high-grade gold Western Flank Zone gold resource via targeted infill drilling.”
Kinsley Project hosts current mineral resources comprising the high-grade sulphide Western Flank Zone and near surface oxide of 418,000 indicated ounces gold at 2.63 grams-per-tonne (g/t) gold, and 117,000 inferred ounces gold at 1.51 g/t gold. Indicated resources are inclusive of 302,000 ounces averaging 6.11 g/t gold hosted within the Secret Canyon Shale at the Western Flank Zone. The Kinsley Project was an historical past producer that yielded 138,000 ounces of near surface open pit oxide gold between 1995-1999 (Figure 1).
 Technical Report on the Kinsley Project, Elko County, Nevada, U.S.A., dated June 21, 2021, with an effective date of May 5, 2021, and prepared by Michael M. Gustin and Gary L. Simmons, and filed under New Placer Dome Gold Corp.’s issuer profile on SEDAR (www.sedar.com).
The 2023 Kinsley Mountain drill program will comprise up to 2,300 metres of RC and 1,200 m of diamond drilling comprising resource infill drilling of the high-grade gold Western Flank Zone (2 core holes for 700 m), near surface oxide-gold resource expansion and delineation (19 RC holes for 2,300 m) at the Main Pit North Oxide and Secret Spot targets, in addition to testing of new IP/chargeability anomaly located between the WFZ and Upper Ridge Pit area (1 core hole for 500 m, Figure 2).
The planned 2023 drilling is designed to follow up on the highly successful 49 hole, 18,000 metre 2020 drill campaign the results of which underscored the resource expansion potential that remains at Western Flank Zone, Main Pit North Oxide, and the Secret Spot targets with highlights including:
Western Flank resource expansion drilling
- 10.22 g/t gold over 6.1 metres within a broader zone grading 2.63 g/t gold (sulphide) over 38.10 metres in KMR20-017
- 15.1 g/t gold (sulphide) over 7.6 metres, including 24.1 g/t gold (sulphide) over 4.6 metres lower zone, 9.08 g/t gold (sulphide) over 6.1 metres upper zone in KMR20-026
Main Pit North Oxide Target yields high-grade intercepts 75 m outside the current pit shell
- 9.83 g/t gold over 7.6 metres high-grade shallow oxide
New surface oxide Discovery at the Secret Spot, including
- 1.77 g/t gold over 25.3 metres in new surface oxide discovery in KMD20-007B
