(MENAFN - ProactiveInvestors - Australia) Silver City Minerals (ASX: SCI) has started rotary airblast drilling at the Yalcowinna Creek and
Parnell projects in New South Wales.

The Yalcowinna Creek drilling will assess the extent of copper anomalism identified by historic drilling under soil and alluvial cover to the southeast and south of the outcropping lodes.

Reverse circulation drilling to test any newly defined targets could commence in the first quarter of 2013.

Drilling at Parnell is expected to start before the end of this year.

Geophysical surveys will also be carried out at Allendale and Razorback to locate sulphide
targets for follow-up drilling in 2013.

Yalcowinna Creek is located about 40 kilometres northeast of Broken Hill. Historic geological mapping, rock chip sampling and RAB geochemical surveys have identified a strong copper zone associated with north striking gossanous lode rocks over an area of 600 by 150 metres.

Silver City believes there is potential for discovery of higher grade, stratigraphically controlled copper deposits similar in style to the lead-zinc-silver deposits which occur in Broken Hill.

The historic Parnell Mine is a BHT style occurrence located 15 kilometres north of Broken Hill.

Known mineralisation is hosted in three lodes within the hinge of a south plunging fold structure. Geological assessments suggests that extensions to mineralisation extend southward beneath a large area of alluvial cover.
