Nuinsco Receives Final Assays from Recent Drilling at Berta Project in Turkey
Published : February 27, 2013

2012 program continues to highlight potential of one of the region's largest copper anomalies


- Enormous copper anomaly, very attractive exploration target.

- 17 widely-spaced holes drilled to date, considerable scope to improve results.

- All holes drilled to date have returned copper mineralization.

- Drilling indicates greater than 8 KM2 copper-mineralized area.

- Drilling demonstrates strongest mineralization is in the eastern part of the Berta porphyry.

- Sixth hole of 2012 program returns intercepts up to 12.65m grading 1.59% Cu and grades up to 22.7% Cu over 0.6m.

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 27, 2013) - Nuinsco Resources Limited ("Nuinsco" or "the Company") (News - Market indicators) ( today reported analytical results from DDHs SD-12-16 and SD-12-17, the fifth and sixth drill holes of a six-hole program on the Berta porphyry copper project in northeast Turkey. The results, in common with all other drilling conducted on the project, are consistently copper mineralized and define an enormous volume of mineralized rock with the east side of the Berta Complex regularly returning stronger results with intercepts including 1.59% Cu over 12.65m and 0.42% Cu over 36.4m and grades up to 22.7% Cu over 0.6m.

"All of the holes drilled to date at Berta have returned copper mineralization," said Nuinsco's President Paul Jones. "The drilling indicates the huge scale and continuity of the anomaly in the Berta porphyry system. The wide spacing of the drill holes and the long anomalous and altered intercepts obtained continue to demonstrate the scope of the copper mineralization at Berta. The property remains a very large and very prospective exploration opportunity." 

Berta is reputed to be the largest copper anomaly in the Turkish Pontides metals belt. Total area covered by the 17 widely-spaced drill holes completed to date is about 8 km2. The current program was conducted during the autumn of 2012 to test bedrock beneath a large copper-in-soil anomaly. 

Drill hole SD-12-16 of the 4,720-metre 2012 program returned 397.55m grading 0.097% Cu (from 475.45m) including 36.4m grading 0.40% Cu (from 532.1m). This hole was collared on the east side of the copper-in-soil anomaly where it intersected phyllic altered and sulphide mineralized dacite. Approximately 800m to the south and near the eastern periphery of the Berta Complex DDH SD-12-17 returned 554.2m grading 0.13% Cu (from 296.8m) or 0.10% Cu when copper grades are cut to 5% Cu, including 121.35m grading 0.34% Cu (from 346.2m) or 0.24% Cu when copper grades are cut. Narrower intervals return exceptional copper grades, for example 22.70% Cu over 0.6m (from 452.1m) that also grades 90.50g/t Ag and 1.6g/t Au. This hole intersected similarly mineralized dacite underlying the north-eastern part of the copper-in-soil anomaly. 

Although primarily a copper target, significantly anomalous gold and silver also occur and molybdenum has also been recognized at depth in some drill holes. When combined with the results of previous drill programs it is becoming clear that, although the entire Berta domain is anomalous with respect to copper, the eastern part of the Berta Complex returns the strongest mineralization. For instance, in addition to strong mineralization observed in current DDHs SD-12-13 and 17, DDH SD-07-08 intersected 710.9m grading 0.28% copper and 0.07g/t gold (see press release dated Apr. 25, 2007) and DDH SD-08-10 returned 164.0m grading 0.20% copper and 0.06g/t gold see press release dated Oct. 20, 2008). The eastern domain of the Complex alone, as outlined by Diamond drilling, defines an extremely large volume of rock and is an attractive and prospective exploration target.

The work program was operated by the Company's joint venture partner Xstrata Copper. Analytical results are tabulated below; all analyses were produced by ALS Laboratories Vancouver, BC facility.
