VR Resources Ltd. announced that the drill is turning on its maiden drill program on its New Boston polymetallic copper-moly-silver porphyry system in west-central Nevada. The program is planned around 2 - 4 drill holes, for between 1,500 and 2,000 metres in total, projected to take approximately one month to complete, with assays expected through May and June. Water supply, heavy equipment services, and camp are all located just six kilometres from the drill, with access off state highway I95.

Strategy: The drill program is the result of two years of field-based mapping and sampling by VR, and the utilization of four, geophysical surveys completed in succession, and utilizing technologies not available during the main period of exploration at New Boston from the mid-1960s through the late 1970s. For example, this drill program will focus on the new, East Zone conductor as delineated by the 3D array, DCIP survey completed in 2023. Historic drill holes located to both the east and the south of the west-plunging East Zone conductor are peripheral in nature, based on: conductivity anomaly; potassic alteration; hyperspectral mineralogy, and; surface copper and trace element geochemistry.

Yet, they produced intersections including 279 ft @ 0.24% Cu, including 59 ft @ 0.38% Cu, starting at surface. Look at the cross-section. The large volume DCIP conductor at East Zone is the inferred source of the copper intersected in the historic peripheral drill holes, copper that migrated up-dip to the south in the host limestone stratigraphy.

As such, goal is to drill-test the East Zone conductor itself for the strongest concentrations of conductive copper sulfide in multi-phase quartz vein stockworks. The long-section demonstrates the potential for hole NB24-001: The drill hole is literally starting in quartz vein rubble with copper sulfide and copper oxide at surface, grading up to 1.7% copper in hand samples, and; Planned drill holes at East Zone stay within the structural, stratigraphic and 3D conductivity models for copper mineralization for their entirety.
