Vancouver, B.C. – Northisle Copper and Gold Inc. (“Northisle” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on the fall drilling program at the Company’s 100% owned North Island Copper-Gold Project on Vancouver Island in British Columbia.
2014 Drill Program
A drill program consisting of four to five holes totalling approximately 1,800 metres was initiated at the Company’s North Island Copper-Gold Project on August 15, 2014. The program includes the drilling of an untested Induced Polarization (“IP”) anomaly extending for 1.5km from the deposit to the northwest. Grade contours and faulting in core suggests the northern half of the deposit displaced to the north-west in the area of the IP anomaly, although there is no assurance that such mineralization will be found.
The first hole testing the IP anomaly NW of the Hushamu deposit has been completed with the core logged and shipped to the ALSGlobal’s Vancouver laboratory for analysis. The drill is now at the site of the second hole.
The North Island Copper-Gold Project
The North Island Copper-Gold Project is situated approximately 15-40 kilometres southwest of Port Hardy and contains the Hushamu Deposit and five other partially explored copper-gold porphyry occurrences. The Company has a current resource estimate of the Hushamu Deposit which has been filed on Sedar (see also May 21, 20014 news release). The project is 100% owned by Northisle.
For more information on Northisle and the Hushamu Deposit please visit the Company’s website atwww.Northisle.ca.
