We have been treated to two RNSs in two days from Xtract Resources (XTR), as the company continues is journey to the goal of 2m tonnes of contained copper. Xtract said that independent laboratory assays have been received from the third drill hole (BRDD-21-009) completed on the Phase 2 diamond drilling programme at the Racecourse Mineral Resource on the Bushranger copper-gold exploration project. Drill hole BRDD-21-009 returned a very wide intersection of 448m @ 0.30% CuEq from a depth of 272m. The company said that the results from drill hole BRDD-21-009 indicate that the mineralisation intersected in hole BRDD-21-007 increases in width at depth, while the higher-grade intervals correlate extremely well from hole BRDD-21-007 to hole BRDD-21-009, indicating good continuity of the higher-grade copper zones.
The ongoing updates from independent oil and gas company San Leon Energy (SLE) continue. It notes the announcement made today by Decklar Resources Inc. in Canada.
