September 8, 2010 Imperial Metals reported the first diamond drill hole of the 2010 Catface exploration program in BC, Canada, CF-10-56, intersected 275.5m at 0.60% copper and 0.014% molybdenum within a 755.0m mineralized section at 0.46% copper and 0.006% molybdenum. The exploration program is scheduled for six drill holes, expected to be completed by the end of September. Subsequent holes will test the Irishman Creek zone (located north of the Cliff zone), the area between Irishman Creek zone and the Cliff zone, and the southern extent of the Cliff zone.
October 15, 2009 Selkirk Metals reported to have confirmed that the Permit approving operations for the proposed 2009 exploration program on the Catface Copper Project, British Columbia has been issued. The approved program includes 22 drill holes totaling approximately 11,000 meters from 11 sites. Drilling will focus on continued expansion and definition of the Cliff Zone, which contains all the resource outlined to date; evaluation of the higher grade mineralization within the Irishman Creek Zone; and drill testing of the Hecate Bay Zone, which was previously identified by surface geochemistry, prospecting, IP geophysics and geological mapping.
