Emphasis to be placed on strongest anomalies identified at centre of Berta porphyry
TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 26, 2012) - Nuinsco Resources Limited ("Nuinsco" or "the Company") (TSX:NWI) (www.nuinsco.ca) today announced that the Company and its joint venture partner Xstrata Copper Canada (Xstrata) will undertake a 7,500 metre diamond drilling program this year at the Berta copper project in northeastern Turkey.
Two diamond drills will be used to conduct the drill program which will comprise up to nine holes ranging from 800m to 1000m in length focussed on high-priority copper in soil anomalies, overlying the central part of the Berta porphyry system. This program will expand drill coverage on the project to areas not previously drilled. Drilling is expected to begin by early June. Previous drill results demonstrate the extensive nature of anomalous copper mineralization in the rocks at Berta, highlighted by the results of DDH SD-07-08 which intersected 710.9m grading 0.28% copper and 0.07g/t gold between 3.80m and 714.7m (see press release dated Apr. 25, 2007) and DDH SD-08-10 which returned 164.0m grading 0.20% copper and 0.06g/t gold between 250.5m and 414.5m (see press release dated Oct. 20, 2008).
"Berta is a very exciting project with exceptional exploration potential from which we've seen outstanding results," said Paul Jones, President. "We're very pleased that Xstrata is committing to test the bedrock geology underlying the strongest domain of copper enrichment in soils identified in what is reputed to be the largest copper anomaly in the Turkish Pontides."
The Berta copper project is undertaken pursuant to a joint venture, of which Xstrata is the operator. The Berta Property is located approximately 50 kilometres south of the Black Sea in northeastern Turkey, within the prolifically mineralized Tethyan-Eurasian Metalogenic Belt which hosts numerous ore deposits in several countries including Iran's Sarcheshmeh Mine, one of the world's largest copper mines at 1.2 billion tonnes grading about 1% copper.
