VANCOUVER, B.C. Northisle Copper and Gold Inc. (“Northisle” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce a 75 km Induced Polarization, “IP” survey is underway on its Island Copper Gold Project located approximately 15 to 40 km southwest of Port Hardy British Columbia. The survey will initially focus on exploring for areas of potential porphyry copper mineralization immediately northwest of the Hushamu Deposit. This is a 4 by 2 km area of limited bed rock exposures containing a series of previously untested magnetic and copper-in-soil anomalies.
Drill Program Update
Drilling designed to test for southern and southeastern extensions of the Hushamu deposit is ongoing. Results from the drill holes on the southern and southeastern side of the deposit will be released once all assays have been received. Upon completion of the drilling on the southern side of the deposit, the drill will be moved to the northern side of the deposit to test for extensions of the mineralization in this area.
Northisle is a Vancouver based junior resource company committed to the exploration and development of the Island Copper-Gold Project on Northern Vancouver Island. The 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. A $1.5 million exploration program at the Island Copper-Gold Project was initiated in August 2011.
