A big milestone was recently accomplished by the crew at the Ti Tree Copper Project in Australia: the completion of the maiden drilling program. The program was put in place to investigate the potential of the copper mineralization in the area.
The drill program, which began in late 2020, was designed to investigate the depth and character of the mineralized zones. The drilling targeted depth of up 30 meters and included 65 drill holes on the western flank of Ti Tree.
The outcome of the program showed strong indications of copper sulfide mineralization down to depths of 40m, with total widths of the utilization varying from 0.5m to 2.0m. It has been estimated that the metal content in the copper-bearing mineralization lies between 0.5 and 1.5% copper.
The excavation confirmed that the Ti Tree Copper Project is host to a series of large-scale mineralization bodies. Thanks to the maiden drilling program, the team was able to ascertain the size, geometry and mineralization dynamics of the deposit as well as the precise locations for further exploration.
This is great news for the peoples of the Ti Tree area, as it means there could soon be more jobs and income available for people living in the area when production starts.
The Ti Tree Copper Project is part of the Cadence Mineral portfolio, a group of strategic mineral assets in Australia, South America and Africa. The project is overseen by the Altius Minerals Corporation and is proactive in finding clean development initiatives for the local populations who are near the project.
The Ti Tree Copper Project is the latest addition to the Cadence minerals portfolio and promises to be a successful endeavor. The successful completion of the drilling program should provide the confidence needed for the further development of the project. Only time will tell if it will prove to be a successful endeavor.
