A0DQKK; OTC-BB: NOMFF; ISIN: CA6565291045) is pleased to announce
the arrival of a third diamond drill rig at the company's flagship
Recent drilling at the Constancia Project has shown that the
mineralization remains open on all sides of the deposit. Strongly
enriched chalcocite and high grade skarn copper mineralization are
being encountered over significant widths especially on the western
and southern margins of the deposit.
"We are particularly pleased with the success of the drilling
program this year and continue to see strong copper mineralization
over significant , generally greater than 100 metre, thicknesses in
recent drilling, which has encouraged us to bring on a third drill
rig to the property" , said Chief Geologist, Thomas Henricksen. "The
Constancia Zone now has dimensions of 1,000 by 900 meters", he
The ongoing program will continue with step-out holes on 100 metre
centres on the San Jose and Constancia Zones, with Constancia being
the immediate priority. Some specific exploration targets beyond the
100 metre stepouts are also being planned for immediate drilling.
The company has completed over 6,100 metres out of a planned, second
phase 20,000 metre drill program.
"We are now planning to report an interim resource estimate in
September this year. We are clearly pleased with the results so far.
When we have defined the limits to the mineralization we are
planning to initiate a scoping study on the Constancia deposit which
will involve metallurgical testing, preliminary engineering and
process design," said President Bob Baxter.
The drilling program and geological studies at the Constancia
project are being supervised by Chief Geologist Dr. Thomas A.
