Cranbrook, British Columbia, (Newsfile Corp. – March 03, 2022) DLP Resources Inc. (“DLP” or the “Company”) (TSXV:DLP) (OTCQB:DLPRF) is pleased to announce an exploration update.
Moby Dick and NZOU Projects (Sullivan-type Zn-Pb-Ag Targets)
With weather conditions improving it is expected that access to the first drill platform on the Moby Dick project will be cleared for drill rig mobilization to commence in mid March and drilling to start in late March-early April.
A three-to-four-hole drill program of approximately 5400m is planned for the Sullivan-type Zn-Pb-Ag targets on the Moby Dick and NZOU projects (Figure 1). As highlighted in the DLP press release of November 9, 2021 the extension of the well-developed MT (magnetotelluric) geophysical anomalies to the NE of hole DD21-02 indicate well developed conductive bodies extending over 5000m x 500m. These conductive zones are proposed to be associated with pyrrhotite (iron sulphide) associated with the extension of the Sullivan Horizon intersected in DD21-02 (Figures 2 and 3). Both geophysical and geological data support the fact that sufficient “smoke” exists to suggest that a significant mineralized Sullivan-type Zn-Pb-Ag system may be encountered in this phase of drilling.
Hungry Creek Project and Copper Creek (Sediment Hosted – Stratiform Copper-Silver-Cobalt Targets)
Permitting for drilling six drill holes (1800m) on both Hungry Creek and five drill holes on Copper Creek (2000m) has commenced. It is expected that permits for both projects should be approved for a summer drill program.
Both Hungry Creek and Copper Creek drilling will target sediment hosted – stratiform copper-silver-cobalt mineralization within the middle Creston Formation. Target 711 at Hungry Creek will be the focus of the first six holes where very encouraging copper mineralization was reported from seven grab and two float samples (see DLP press release dated November 30, 2021). Copper up to 1.15% and anomalous silver of up to 3.51ppm together with anomalous cobalt (up to 117.6ppm) and barium (up to 4,274 ppm) were also reported.
Aurora Project (Porphyry Cu-Mo Target)
Aurora is a porphyry copper-molybdenum project in Southern Peru with the potential to host a significant copper-molybdenum mineralized system. (Figures 4 and 5).
The community agreement with the Parobamba community has been finalized and permitting for drilling initiated. Drilling is expected to commence by June 2022.
When the property was under option with Focus Ventures Ltd. In 2013 they reported that thirteen historic holes drilled in 1999 and 2005 cut significant intervals of copper and molybdenum mineralization, including 244m @ 0.48% Cu, 0.007% Mo in DDA-1, 142m @ 0.5% Cu, 0.004% Mo in DDA-3, and 71.7m @ 0.7% Cu, 0.007% Mo in DDA-3A (see Focus news release July 11, 2012). No additional drilling has been done since Bear Creek and Vena Resources drilled those six and seven historic holes respectively. From a review of the historic data, majority of the holes were drilled within the leached cap of the mineralized system which extends to approximately 200m depth. Ten of the thirteen holes never fully tested the oxide and secondary enrichment zone and/or the primary copper zone at depth encountered in DDA-01.
Once permitting for drilling is approved a 3000m phase 1 drill program will be initiated to confirm the historic copper-molybdenum results reported and expand the known secondary copper mineralization intersected previously in historic Hole DDA-01 (see news release of DLP Resources Inc. dated May 18, 2001).
Ian Gendall, CEO & President of DLP commented: “We are excited about initiating the planned drilling on the Sullivan-type Zn-Pb-Ag targets on the Moby Dick and NZOU projects within the next month. In addition, drilling of the 711-copper target on the Hungry Creek Project in SE BC this summer is expected to give us a good indication of the mineralized thickness and copper grades at depth along this stratiform horizon which has now being mapped over 11km. With permitting underway on the Aurora porphyry copper project in Peru we look forward to having drilling commence in June 2022”.
Proposed Extension of June 2021 Warrants
The Company is pleased to announce that it has applied to the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”) for a one-year extension of the term of 4,333,967 common share purchase warrants (the “Warrants”) issued as part of the Company’s private placement that closed on June 23, 2021. The Warrants are exercisable at a price of $0.40 and currently expire on June 23, 2022.
Subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange, the term of the Warrants will be extended to June 23, 2023 for a total term of two years.
The Warrants are exercisable at a price of $0.40 and currently expire on June 23, 2022, subject to acceleration in the event that the trading price of the common shares of the Company equals or exceeds $0.50 for 10 consecutive days.”
