VANCOUVER, BC, — (January 20, 2022) Alpha Copper Corp. (CSE: ALCU) (“Alpha,” Alpha Copper,” or the “Company”) a resource sector organization founded to create value through mineral exploration, technical development, and asset acquisition, is pleased to provide a brief introductory overview of its Indata Copper-Gold project located in a highly prospective region of British Columbia.
The Indata property, totaling 3,189 hectares (7,880 acres) is located 230 kilometers northwest of the City of Prince George, BC and is immediately south of the Stardust-Kwanika Project owned by Northwest Copper Corp. Two types of mineralization have historically been explored for at Indata: gold-silver veins and porphyry style copper mineralization. The property includes three porphyry copper targets with the largest, the Lake Zone, measuring 500 to 1,000 meters in width along-strike for at least 1,500 meters.
The project is situated in a complex geological setting adjacent to the Pinchi Fault, a major structure separating the oceanic-derived Cache Creek Terrane to the west and volcanic island arc-derived Quesnel Terrane to the east. Previous drill intercepts in the northern portion include DDH98-4 with 0.20% copper over 148 m including 0.37% copper over 24 meters at the bottom of the hole and a trench excavated during road construction averaged 0.37% copper over 75 meters (the southern half of the target has had no drilling completed).
Gold vein drill intercepts have included 47.26 g/t gold over 4.0 meters. In 2019 a new vein measuring 5.1 meters in width was discovered 600 meters south of any previously known vein and a new area of copper gold mineralization exposed by logging road construction was discovered a further 2,900 meters south that included a select grab sample that returned 3.64% copper and 5.95 g/t gold.
Alpha Copper CEO, Mr. Darryl Jones notes, “As has been identified so many times in the past, location, location, location, can prove decisive to the eventual outcome of any resource sector opportunity. Recent positive announcements regarding the adjacent Stardust-Kwanika Project as well as regional historic records provide us with heightened confidence that we are in the ‘right place’ – and market forces principally driven by the burgeoning clean tech revolution position us at ‘the right time.’ We look forward to developing an aggressive campaign to develop a clear asset picture aimed at advancing our strategic business goals, development prospects and shareholder value to help serve the growing demand for copper around the globe.”
Alpha Copper Corp. has an option to earn a 60% interest In the Indata Project from Eastfield Resources Ltd. by paying $400,000 (cash and/or shares) and completing $2,000,000 in exploration before June 20, 2023. An initial budget of $750,000 has been set.
