World Copper confirms targets at Escalones project

World Copper has announced exploration results from the northern targets at the Escalones project located southeast of Santiago, Chile.

Over a one-month period, the Canadian resource company collected 440 samples from three targets north of the main deposit at Escalones as part of a rock sampling and mapping program, and the results outline two significant copper-porphyry targets and one skarn target. The northern targets have significant potential, noted World Copper, with surface alteration zones on the same scale as that of the main deposit. 

“Data from the sampling program will be used in the near future to plan out the next phases of our exploration at Escalones on the Mancha Amarilla and Northern Targets,” said CEO Nolan Peterson.

The primary target – Rio Negro – produced five samples grading over 1% Cu and multiple samples returning over 0.5% Cu. It is considered a priority copper-porphyry target for future drill programs.

World Copper also owns the Cristal copper project in northern Chile.
