Bell Copper’s Perseverance Copper Porphyry Project – K-20 drill hole

On 21 May 2019, Bell Copper issued a brief note detailing progress at their Perseverance project, situated on 13,000 acres near the Hualapai Mountains about 19 miles southeast of Kingman, Arizona.

The news release focuses on assay results from their K-20 drill hole; drilled vertically to a depth of 1,319 meters. They report copper values averaging 415 ppm copper over 595 m.  They interpret this long intercept to represent the peripheral part of a buried porphyry copper system. Drilling encountered copper mineralization involving chalcopyrite, bornite, and chalcocite, along with some molybdenite.

The K-20 drilling also encountered a thin (30-cm wide) carbonatite dike with calcite, apatite, biotite, and primary magnetite.
