BUNKER HILL ANNOUNCES COMMENCEMENT OF DRILLING AND SAMPLING PROGRAMS AT THE BUNKER HILL MINE
Bunker Hill Mining Corp. has commenced diamond drilling and sampling programs designed to provide confirmation data on mineral resources in the UTZ, Newgard and Quill ore zones.
The total program consists of an initial 15,000 feet of diamond drilling from a series of underground drill stations, and approximately 4,000 feet of channel sampling. Drilling has already started in the UTZ zone and will conclude there by the middle of May, 2020. Concurrent and complementary to this, channel sampling has also started in the some of the open stopes cut into that ore zone.
Following work in the UTZ zone, which is located on the five and six levels of the mine, the drill program will shift down to the nine level of the mine with a focus on the Quill mineral zone -- the largest known orebody within the mine. This will consist of at least 10,000 feet of diamond drilling from four to five drill stations.
After completing the sampling in the UTZ zone, the sample crews will also shift down to nine level where they will undertake a sample program focused on the Newgard mineral zone -- second-largest known orebody in the mine. This sampling is to occur between the seventh and the 11th levels.
This work and the subsequent assays are expected to be completed by July of this year. Details of the sample and drill results will be forthcoming in further news releases as they are received by the company.
Resource Development Associates of Highland Ranch, Colo., has been retained to complete a resource estimate in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 utilizing this new data and confirmed historic resource information.
Michael McGinnis, CPG, supervising project geologist and a qualified person under National Instrument 43-101, has approved the technical information in this news release.
