Vancouver, BC, Canada, Sept 1, 2022 – First Tellurium Corp. (CSE: FTEL) (the “Company” or “First Tellurium”), reports that, further to the Company’s August 23 news release, work is now underway to investigate potential copper porphyry systems at the Company’s Deer Horn Project in west-central British Columbia.
The program, led by Dr. Lee Groat of the University of British Columbia, is following up on three copper showings first discovered at Deer Horn in 2012. The Company’s latest PEA noted that these showings were indicative of a copper porphyry system hidden from previous explorers due to glaciation.
“We’re very pleased to have Dr. Groat lead this work,” said First Tellurium CEO Tyrone Docherty. “He knows the property well, and he has long supported the premise that Deer Horn could host at least one copper porphyry system.”
Two of the showings are located about one kilometer west-northwest of the known Te-Ag-Au resource and are indicative of bulk tonnage, porphyry style copper-silver mineralization and associated alteration. Full extent of either showing is unknown and open.
A third copper target is situated northeast of the resource along ridge crests above Kenney Lake, spanning approximately four kilometers from the original showings. Prospecting includes the use of a portable spectrometer, which can greatly enhance identification and measurement of mineral systems.
“One of our objectives is to identify drill targets for our next round of work,” said Docherty. “While we’re focused on expanding the known tellurium-silver-gold resource at Deer Horn, a copper porphyry system could be a game-changer for First Tellurium.”
Docherty noted that the Deer Horn property covers more than 50 square kilometers, with large amounts of ground yet to be prospected. “Considering what we know to date,” he said, “we’re confident there are exciting new discoveries to come.”
