Northisle Copper and Gold Inc. (TSXV: NCX) has received an additional assay result from its 2023 drill programme at its Northwest Expo target on the North Island project.  This result represents the highest grade and thickness result ever drilled on the target site.

“We once again have drilled one of the best ever holes drilled on the property at NW23-13.  The 2023 drill programme continues to yield gold grades that are much higher than what is typically found in copper porphyries globally,” Sam Lee, President & CEO of Northisle stated.

“The potential implications of this programme are enormous for our project as we continue to intercept exceptionally high gold grades, near surface, within this extensive porphyry system…The area remains open, and we have multiple additional holes to be released from the current drilling programmes in the coming weeks.”

The highest grade and thickness result drilled on the Northwest Expo target was drilled within 65m from surface. Multiple assay results remain pending from 2023 drilling programmes.

Highlights included:

  • Hole NW23-13: 130m grading 1.65g/t Au and 0.33% Cu (2.13g/t Au Eq. or 1.58% Cu Eq)
    • including 72m grading 2.22g/t Au and 0.413% Cu (2.79g/t Au Eq. or 2.07% Cu Eq)
    • including 15m grading 3.42 g/t Au and 1.15% Cu (5.01g/t Au Eq. or 3.71% Cu Eq)

The 2023 phase two drill programme at Northwest Expo commenced on 8 September 2023 with two additional holes completed in zone one and a third in progress south of zone one.

Northisle owns the North Island Project, which is located near Port Hardy, British Columbia on a 33,149ha block of mineral titles 100% owned by Northisle stretching 50km northwest from the now closed Island Copper Mine operated by BHP Billiton.
