Copper King Mining Corporation Provides Mining Updates
Copper King Mining Corporation (Pink Sheets: CPRK), an ore mining, processing and exploration company located in southern Utah, today provided the updates concerning its mining operations at the Hidden Treasure open pit near Milford, Utah.
Copper King commenced stripping the waste rock from its "Hidden Treasure Copper Skarn Ore Body" in June of 2007, removing approximately 2.2 million tons of such waste rock by drilling, blasting and excavation. Removal of the waste rock revealed the presence of some extreme unexpected and unknown high grade copper and silver ores, such as the important copper ore mineral bornite, the beautiful crystal covellite, and the high yielding copper ore cuprite. For example, two samples from the ore zone showed the following:
Sample #1 44.6% copper Ag 19.26 oz. Sample #2 51% copper Ag 28.00 oz
Sample #1 represents 892 pounds of copper per ton of ore, compared to the expected grade of 1.8% copper or 36 pounds of copper per ton of ore. Sample #2 represents 1,020 pounds of copper per ton. The company believes that these samples may represent shoots or veins that occur between the drill holes on 50 foot centers. It is presently unknown how many tons of ore are available. However, even a small tonnage of these materials may substantially increase the pounds of available copper, the ounces of silver and the grade of the concentrate, all of which augment the value of the company's mining holdings and increase shareholder value.
