Copper Ridge Explorations Inc. – Drilling commences at Duke Island, Alaska
The planned drill holes will target high grade massive to semi-massive Cu-Ni-PGE sulphide mineralization within the Marquis Zone of this ultramafic intrusive complex. The drill targets have been defined by interpretations based on geological mapping, historical drill results and three-dimensional modeling of a variety of geophysical surveys including magnetics, electromagnetics, induced polarization, magnetotellurics and gravity. The historical drilling did not extend to the basal contacts or the feeder/conduit area of the intrusive complex, where highest grades of sulphide mineralization are expected to occur.
Cu-Ni-PGE sulphide mineralization was discovered on Duke Island by Quaterra in 2001. Between 2001 and 2006, Quaterra completed geological mapping, soil and rock sampling, ground and airborne geophysical surveys and 1,820 m of core drilling in 11 holes. The discovery includes copper, nickel and PGE enriched sulphide mineralization within an
