Redbank Copper has broad copper sulphide hits in the Northern Territory

(MENAFN - ProactiveInvestors)

Redbank Copper (ASX:RCP) has intersected broad copper sulphide mineralisation within breccia pipe structures at its flagship Redbank Project in the McArthur Basin Northern Territory.

High grade sulphide copper mineralisation has been shown to be continuous between drill sections.

Drilling also tested broad and deep copper mineralisation within the oxide zone.

Significant intercepts are:

- 68 metres at 1.21% copper from 92 metres including 21 metres at 2.24% copper from 97 metres;
- 12 metres at 1.39% copper from 108 metres;
- 56 metres at 1.21% copper from 0 metres including 25 metres at 2.12% copper from 15 metres; and
- 9.5 metres at 3.6% copper from 162 metres.

Copper mineralisation at Redbank is hosted by moderate to steeply dipping altered and partially brecciated zones generally in the shape of cylindrical ‘pipes’.

Within these pipes grades of over 30% copper have occurred in the oxide zone and historic open cut mining has focused on mining this high grade copper oxide ore at Sandy Flat as well as smaller excavations at the Redbank Azurite and Prince prospects

The drilling was designed to test the interpreted geological model which can be used to guide further work.

Results to date have confirmed geological interpretations and the robustness of the mineralisation.
