Angkor Resources Expands Copper Anomaly at Andong Meas
GRANDE PRAIRIE, AB, (June 9th, 2021): Angkor Resources Corp. (TSXV: ANK and OTC: ANKOF) (“Angkor” or “the Company”) announces that recent exploration has expanded the copper anomaly to 1.5 by 1.2 kilometres with up to 443 ppm (g/t) copper on the 100%-owned Andong Meas license.
Further exploration and analysis confirm the Canada Wall prospect as a large zone of copper-molybdenum (Cu-Mo) mineralization hosted within the western side of the Andong Meas tenement. The copper-in-soil anomaly is 1.5 by 1.2 kilometres and contains a 500 by 500 metre zone of 150 ppm to 443 ppm copper. An anomaly of 30 ppm up to 299 ppm molybdenum is contained within the larger copper anomaly (see map below).
- Copper-in-soil values up to 443 ppm which trend conformably, and occur within broader copper-anomalous zones.
- 11,376 soil samples collected and analyzed for Copper and Molybdenum over an area of two kilometers by three kilometers.
- Activities are under way to trench and complete a detailed grid on both anomalies and expand the soil geochemical program on both prospects to establish drill targets.
Consulting Australian geologist, John Menzies, further assessed the Andong Meas prospects and comments, “I was genuinely surprised to find a convincingly interesting porphyry Cu-Mo prospect of likely Cretaceous age at Canada Wall. Diamond drilling has intersected wide intervals of vein stockwork and breccia with pyrite, chalcopyrite and locally molybdenite. It is recommended that the soil geochemical program be extended.” John C. Menzies, BSc., Fellow of the Society of Economic Geologists and the Australian Institute of Geoscientists., Chairman of Cmi Capital Ltd.
VP Exploration Dennis Ouellette comments, “In tropical environments with heavy rains, mobile elements like copper are leached and carried lower in the soil profile when the rains recede and the water table drops. The expected diminishment of copper in the upper soil environments means that encountering soil results of 200 ppm Cu or higher makes the anomaly at Canada Wall very intriguing.“
Previous exploration work included soil geochemistry from termite mounds and shallow holes, ground magnetics, and an IP/Resistivity survey. The latter identified two large conductors, Canada Wall to the north and South Creek/JD2 to the south (a new area of exploration). The two geophysical features indicate mineralization hosted by quartz veins and breccias containing pyrite, chalcopyrite, molybdenite and pyrrhotite. Canada Wall copper prospect is 3 km west of the Wild Boar gold prospect.
