Rokmaster Data Review Reveals Copper Mineralization Proximal to the Duncan Lake Project

Rokmaster Data Review Reveals Copper Mineralization Proximal to the Duncan Lake Project

Canada NewsWire


VANCOUVER, June 6, 2017 /CNW/ - Rokmaster Resources Corp. ("Rokmaster" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that review of available data from historic exploration work conducted on newly acquired claims has commenced. In addition to noting several zinc-lead occurrences similar in nature to those at the Company's Duncan Lake Project (the "Project"), occurrences of basaltic copper-bearing talus-float rocks were discovered on a steep overburden-covered area 1km east of the Duncan Peninsula, 6km southeast of the central portion (Section B) of the Project, directly above the Duncan Forest Service haul road.

The immediate hillside is thought to be underlain in part by altered basic volcanic rocks of the Index Formation. The schistose copper bearing float contained disseminated chalcocite and magnetite, assaying up to 5.9% copper and 12.3 grams silver and 107 ppm zinc. These historic mineral occurrences and significant soil and geophysical anomalies were originally discovered and periodically explored from 1991 to 1997 by consulting geologist W. Don Sutherland, P. Eng., with assistance from INCO Exploration and Technical Services Ltd., Regional Resources Ltd. and Hudson Bay Exploration Ltd. Two diamond drill holes totaling 306 meters were drilled in 1993 and 1996. The 1993 hole tested a magnetic trend near the copper float occurrence coinciding with a moderate copper geochemical anomaly, with the 1996 hole testing a recently exposed 3.5 km long rusty caliche zone between the haul road and Duncan Lake. No mineralization of economic significance was encountered in either hole. Targets remaining open include a large zinc-copper soil anomaly and a coincident VLF Electro Magnetic anomaly that have not been trenched or drilled to date. Petrographic studies by INCO of 4 samples of the basaltic copper bearing float rock suggested the chalcocite mineralization is primary.

The Company's field crews have commenced work on the Project in preparation for drilling. Follow up work in and around the copper area will search for the source of the high grade float and additional evidence of a Besshi type copper-zinc deposit(s).

The geological and technical information contained in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Dr. Antonio M. ("Mel") De Quadros, PEng, a Director of the Company, who is a Qualified Person as per National Instrument 43-101.
