Published 21 September 2018

Copperstone Resources AB (“Copperstone” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce significant copper assay results from drillhole COS18364 in the Granliden Hill area.


103m of semi-continuous chalcopyrite mineralisation intercepted from 315-418m returning 0.42% Cu and 3.24g/t Ag and containing an 11m zone from 343-354m returning 2.62% Cu, 17.5g/t Ag and 0.2g/t Au.

Drill hole COS18364

COS18364 was collared east of Granliden Hill approximately 200m north of COS18360 and was drilled due west at -60 degrees dip to a length of 663.80m. From 35.9m the drill hole intercepted a thick package of mafic amygdaloidal lava overlying banded siltstone / arenite (with pyrrhotite) and underlying quartz porphyritic rhyolite. Within the lower part of the drillhole there are also intercalated zones of micro-diorite, minor hydrothermal breccia and younger post-mineral intermediate dykes. Mineralisation consists exclusively of chalcopyrite with subordinate pyrrhotite, pyrite, arsenopyrite and minor bornite. Mineralisation styles are either irregular stockwork-like veining over continuous zones, or discreet narrow veins. A single thick intercept of continuous chalcopyrite was intercepted from 347-348.15m (1.15m) and returned 16.15% Cu, >100g/t Ag and 0.58g/t Au. This intercept is contained in a high grade zone from 343-354m (11m) grading 2.62% Cu, 17.46g/t Ag and 0.2g/t Au. In some places veins are associated with micro-brecciation textures, associated with quartz and in general with little to no visual wall-rock alteration effect.

Note that all lengths quoted above are drilled intercept lengths only and the true width of mineralisation is not known. Composite grades are weighted averages with no capping applied. Choice of composite zone is based purely on the visual recognition of mineralisation pattern.

Ongoing laboratory testing

At the moment laboratory testing is still ongoing for drill holes COS18360, COS18362 and COS18363.  A further 11 drill holes from the NANR campaign (2004-2007) and the earlier Copperstone campaign 2015 have also been sampled. The main objective of the latter is to close the gaps within the sample string so that composite grades can be determined.


Chalcopyrite mineralisation found in COS18364 is similar in style and patterns to that found in all drill holes from the Granliden Hill area. In many drill holes, the style of mineralisation is composed of thicker high grade (>1% Cu) veins, surrounded by areas of narrower veinlets forming broader zones of low grade (<1% Cu) mineralisation. In some instances high grade veins are more isolated, or intercepts of lower grade envelopes do not intercept any high grade veins. This pattern is repeatable and gives an insight into the macro patterns along the length of the mineralised zone. At this stage the true widths and lengths of individual zones and veins are not known but it is clear that these features are widely distributed across the Granliden Hill area with an estimated trend ranging from north-south to northeast-southwest.

Chalcopyrite mineralisation does appear to cross-cut the host geology package and suggests strong structural control. In the 2018 campaign three drill holes have also found a felsic granitoid rock (stock) that also appears to have a north-east trend. This southern igneous body could potentially be syn-mineral and possibly causative to the mineralisation. The bias of individual intercepts and widths of uncapped weighted average composited grade are largely dependent on the drillhole azimuth and dip relative to the overall trend of the mineralised zone.

Core Assays and Quality Assurance / Quality Control

All drill core boxes were delivered by the Drill Contractor to the secure Copperstone Site Office 1km from the drill site. Before transport to Malå, preliminary inspection and logging is carried out by Copperstone personnel. Core is then logged in detail at the Copperstone Facility in Malå before zones for sampling are selected. Once sample zones are identified and ticketed core boxes are then collected for laboratory analysis.

Sample preparation including half-core sawing, crushing, splitting and pulverizing has been carried out at ALS Minerals Laboratories, an accredited laboratory based in Malå. Prepared 50g aliquot pulps are then couriered to their Analytical Laboratory in Ireland. Sample analysis is then 4-acid digestion followed by ICP finish (ME-MS61) for 49 elements, including Ag, Cu and Zn. All samples with greater than 10,000ppm (1%) Cu and / or Zn are re-run with 4-acid digestion and then ICP-AES finish (Cu-OG62 and Zn-OG62) with results reported in percentage. Gold values are determined with a 30g fire assay fusion with AAS finish (Au-AA23).

In total 73 samples each with a drill length of 2.0m were submitted for assay from COS18364.  This represents approximately 23% of the NQ core in this drillhole. The certificated copper-gold standard reference samples used are OREAS 501C and OREAS 502C, as well as blanks and duplicate samples inserted at regular intervals in the sampling sequence in order to maintain Quality Control (accuracy and precision).  A total of 12 qaqc samples (4 blanks, 4 standards and 4 duplicates) were submitted at a 1:20 frequency. All qaqc results reported by ALS are within acceptable limits for the two batches submitted for COS18364.

“This is our best intercept since we began exploration in the Granliden area. In fact this drillhole is top in both the single assay result and cumulative length of copper mineralisation categories, and that is very exciting. Again we have found another significant long intercept of copper mineralisation, and this has strengthened the potential for extending the area of known mineralisation significantly beyond the historical limits of Granliden Hill. It’s now obvious that the system is large and spread out across at least 1.0km north-south up to a few old holes north of Granliden Hill. We can’t say anything now about the possibility for an economic outcome but I’m very excited about the possibilities. Nowhere else in Sweden is there such a possibility I believe. Now that drilling is complete we are working on the modelling of this data and building a picture of the potential mineral resources. This work is changing the future of this company” comments Chris McKnight CEO of Copperstone.

Maiden Mineral Resource Statement at Kamativi Tailings Lithium Project Shows: Indicated Resource 26,320,000 tonnes at 0.58% Li2O

VANCOUVER, B.C., Sept. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Canadian strategic metals company Chimata Gold Corp. (CSE – CAT) (“Chimata” or the “Company”) announces completion of a maiden Mineral Resource Statement for the Kamativi Tailings Lithium Project (the “Kamativi Project”):

On behalf of Chimata in association with its local Zimbabwean partner Jimbata (Pvt) ltd (“Jimbata”), The MSA Group (Pty) Ltd (“MSA”) has completed a Mineral Resource Statement for the Kamativi Project. The Kamativi Project is located outside Kamativi Village in the Matabeleland North Province of Zimbabwe, approximately 185 kilometres east-southeast of Victoria Falls and approximately 310 km northwest of Bulawayo. The Kamativi Project is associated with the historical Kamativi Tin Mine, which ceased operation in 1994.

The Kamativi tailings storage facility is a man-made deposit that was created from tailings produced from processing of tin mineralisation at the Kamativi Tin Mine. The Kamativi tailings were deposited over the period 1936 to 1994 and are derived from the mining and processing of the tin-bearing (spodumene-bearing lithium-caesium-tantalum (“LCT”) pegmatites. At Kamativi, spodumene is the predominant lithium mineral present, with minor amounts of cookeite, zinnwaldite, petalite and amblygonite.

The Mineral Resource Statement was based on geochemical analyses and density measurements, attained from drilling and pitting respectively, undertaken by Jimbata between March 2018 and June 2018. A total of 115 vertical holes were drilled at Kamativi at a nominal 100 m grid spacing. Initially, drilling was by coring, and later an auger method was employed. Blank samples, certified reference materials and duplicates were included with the drill hole samples. As an additional check, 6% of the drill hole samples assayed by the primary laboratory were re-assayed by a second laboratory. The QP is satisfied that the assays are of sufficient quality for use in Mineral Resource estimation.

Itronics President Dr. John Whitney Guest Speaker at Prestigious Resource Recovery Conference; Discusses Itronics’ Breakthrough “Zero Waste” Technologies

RENO, Nev., Sept. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Itronics Inc. (OTC:ITRO), a diversified producer of GOLD’n GRO zinc fertilizers and silver products and a green “Zero Waste” technology development Company, is pleased to announce that Dr. John Whitney, its founder and Chairman, participated as a speaker Wednesday at the prestigious resource recovery and waste management conference sponsored by the Envirobiz Group ( at the Marriott Coronado Island, San Diego.

The conference annually works to stimulate creative thinking on strategies for waste management and resource recovery, facilitates the exchange of information between key executives in these sectors and allows executives to renew or establish new business relationships.

Dr. Whitney was a speaker on the “Specialty Recycling, Treatment & Disposal Companies Panel” at the conference. He told conference participants about Itronics’ “Zero Waste” technologies and reported on Itronics' development successes over the past year.   Included was a short summary of non-photo chemical processes that are being developed with an emphasis on the Company’s breakthrough E-Scrap Refining Technology that completely recovers the energy and metals contained in the e-scrap (discarded computer circuit boards) while producing “green energy” for a refining power cost savings of 50 percent. 

Dr. Whitney also told the group that Itronics laboratory testing over the past 12 months has successfully demonstrated that its KAM-Thio liquid is able to neutralize residual cyanide in leached silver/gold mine tailings and to recover some of the residual silver and gold left in the tailings.  It also recovers other metals including zinc left in the tailings by the cyanide leaching process.  The successful test results indicate that Itronics may be on the threshold of developing another revolutionary breakthrough technology, this time for the silver/gold mining industry.

Conference participants told Dr. Whitney that there may also be some significant applications for the KAM-Thio technology in other industries.  Itronics plans to investigate these possibilities as it moves the KAM-Thio development forward.

“This was a wonderful opportunity for Itronics to meet top executives from all different types of commercial resource recovery and hazardous waste management service companies.  Itronics has now pioneered the development of two green 'Zero Waste' recycling technologies,” said Dr. Whitney.  “Itronics is now pioneering and has developed proof of concept at a laboratory scale for its third 'Zero Waste' technology, the breakthrough KAM-Thio cyanide neutralization and metal recovery technology.  These achievements are generating significant hazardous waste management industry interest.”

Dajin Delivers Lithium Brine Samples From San José – Navidad Property to Lab

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dajin Resources Corp. (“Dajin”) (TSX-V: DJI) (OTC: DJIFF) (Germany: C2U1) is pleased to report that the Phase two near-surface exploration program on the San José – Navidad minas located on the Salinas Grandes salar in the province of Jujuy, Argentina, has been completed.  This Phase consisted of drilling and sampling seven  holes.  The Lithium brine samples taken have been forwarded to Alex Stewart Argentina (ASA) laboratories in Jujuy, Argentina.  In addition to the brine samples, seven core samples for relative brine release measurements were taken and have been sent to Daniel B Stephens & Associates laboratories in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. The highly prospective San José  – Navidad minas are part of a 93,000 hectares (230,000 acres) land package controlled by Dajin and being explored by LSC Lithium Corporation (“LSC”).  To fulfill the terms of an earn-in agreement (51%) LSC must complete CDN$2,000,000 in exploration expenditures.  LSC is the operator of the project.

Dajin’s Phase one surface exploration program consisted of 25 shallow brine auger samples covering an area of 550 hectares (5.5 km2) in the northwestern corner of the 4,300 hectare (43 km2) San Jose/Navidad mina.  Brine concentrations ranged from 281 mg/l to 1,353 mg/l, averaging 591 mg/l Lithium.   Click here to see Geochemical Map

Dajin Resources S.A. and LSC Lithium Corporation control most of the Salinas Grandes salar. 

The San José – Navidad minas have not been explored previously for Lithium bearing brines, but results from earlier exploration programs in adjacent parts of the salar reported Lithium brine sampling from 1 meter-deep pits.  The seven closest pit samples, taken between 0 to 200 meters from both the north and west sides of the mina yielded Lithium concentrations that ranged from 279 mg/l to 987 mg/l, averaging 551 mg/l.  Pit samples taken within 1 km of the property boundary assayed up to 1,122 mg/l Lithium.  The highest reported assay value in Salinas Grandes salar exceeded 3,000 mg/l Lithium.

Exploration Methodology Used

The seven sample points were pre-planned on a 1,000m grid, located in the field with a hand-held GPS unit.  At each sample site a Vibracore drill machine was used to extract HQ diameter cores to an average depth of 7.8 m.  Thereafter, a bailer was used to extract brines from the lithological units.  The bailed brine was then decanted into three sterilized plastic litre size bottles and sealed without any air being trapped in the bottle.  Thereafter, the samples were delivered to the laboratory for analyses.

Sampling and QA/QC

Brine sampling involved collection of brines from the drill holes by a bailer and decanted into an approximately 13.5 litre bucket, which was flushed with fresh brine several times prior to collection of the sample.  Brine was poured into 1-litre sample bottles which had been previously flushed with fresh brine from the bucket several times.  Sample bottles were filled to the top to eliminate the inclusion of air and sealed with a leak-proof lid.  Samples were labelled and labels covered with clear tape to prevent erasure of sample information.  All samples remained in the possession of the site geologist until delivery to Alex Stewart Laboratory (ASA) in Jujuy, Argentina.

The technical information in this press release has been prepared in accordance with the Canadian regulatory requirements of National Instrument 43-101 and has been reviewed and approved on behalf of Dajin Resources Corp. by Dajin Directors, Dr. Catherine Hickson, P. Geo and Dr. Mark Coolbaugh, CPG, the Qualified Persons.

About Dajin: (
