Kodiak Copper suspends B.C. drilling amidst flooding threat

Kodiak Copper Corp.[KDK-TSXV] stated work has actually been momentarily suspended at its 100%- owned MPD copper-gold porphyry job in southern British Columbia due to flooding and roadway closures.

The business stated the relocation follows an evacuation order for the town of Merritt as an outcome of flooding. Worker has actually been securely demobilized and there is no danger to the task facilities, the business stated.

Earlier this year, Kodiak reported the discovery of a considerable state-of-the-art copper-gold extension of the just recently found Gate Zone at the MPD task.

The business stated a considerable top-quality copper-gold discovery was made on a 75- metre action out, south of eviction Zone discovery which was initially drilled in late 2019 and revealed in January, 2020.

It stated the discovery is a higher-grade extension of eviction Zone that is most likely near a porphyry centre based upon mineralization and change strength.

A 282- metre area of highly mineralized and changed core from drill hole MPD-20-004(drilled to 785 metres and partly reported in an April, 2021 press release) was focused on and hurried through assay. It returned 0.70%copper, 0.49 g/t gold, and 2.64 g/t silver (1.16%copper equivalent) over 282 metres from 263 to 545 metres.

The MPD job covers a 97.3 square kilometre land bundle in south-central British Columbia and represents the debt consolidation of 3 residential or commercial properties (Man, Prime, Dillard) which had actually never ever been checked out as a single job with contemporary methods.

It lies in the Quesnel Trough, B.C.’s main copper-producing belt, the one that hosts Teck Resources Ltd.’s( TECK.B– TSX, TECK.A– TSX, TECK-NYSE) Highland Valley mine, Imperial Metals Corp.’s (III-TSX) Mount Polley mine, and Centerra Gold Inc.’s [CG-TSX, CAGDF-OTC] Mount Milligan mine.

Kodiak has stated the MPD job’s Nicola Belt geology has numerous comparable qualities to the neighbouring alkalic porphyry systems at the Copper Mountain mine to the south and New Gold Inc.’s( NGD– TSX, NYSE American) New Afton mine to the north.

MPD is surrounding to the highway and is normally available year-round through service roadways.
