Zonte Metals discovers large copper-in-soil anomalies at the K1 gravity anomaly.

February 23, 2024                                                                                     TSXV: ZON

Zonte Metals (ZON-TSXV) is pleased to announce the discovery copper-in-soil anomalies at the K1 gravity anomaly on its Cross Hills Copper project in Newfoundland and Labrador.

The K1 anomaly was discovered during a gravity survey carried out in the spring of 2023. The anomaly is large and measures 2 km in length and up to 600m in width, and is open along strike in one direction. Soil sampling carried out over the target has identified several large copper-in-soil anomalies spatially associated with the gravity target. Limited prospecting over the target area has also discovered copper mineralization in several locations within the target area.

The soil program over the K1 target was completed on wide spaced lines at 300m with sample sites at 100m as a first pass, followed by infill lines in one area. This initial soil program identified a significant copper-in-soil anomaly on the western side of the target and extending beyond the limits of the gravity surveyed area. This soil anomaly is large at about 1.4km in strike length and up to 700m in width, and is open along strike and width.  A second copper-in-soil anomaly was discovered within the gravity anomaly area, measuring about 1km in length and up to 600m in width. Both anomalies require additional sampling to define their dimensions.  

The copper-in-soil anomalies at the K1 target are spatially related to the gravity anomaly as well as with iron oxide, calcic and sodic alteration, copper indications in bedrock and faults. The target will be further advanced with additional soils and a magnetic survey to assess its potential.  See image below and for more information on the target and the Cross Hills Copper Project please visit https://www.zontemetals.com/projects/cross-hills-copper-property
