First Tellurium (CSE: FTEL) (OTCQB: FSTTF) is reporting that its property-wide mapping and sampling program at the Company’s Deer Horn property in west-central British Columbia has reinforced a key porphyry alteration model and provided drill targets for the mid-September drill program. The information was reported by Dr. Lee Groat, consulting geologist and qualified person (“QP”) for First Tellurium. This information follows the company’s report earlier this month that confirmed a crucial structural connection between the property’s Pond copper porphyry and gold-silver-tellurium systems. For the sampling program, a team of graduate students from the University of British Columbia and the University of St. Andrews gathered 130 rock samples from the property, with 119 designated for assays, four undergoing U-Pb zircon geochronology, 5 receiving thin-section petrographic analysis, and 10 undergoing X-ray powder diffraction analysis. The program is scheduled to continue in September with one drill pad in the Pond zone and two drill pads in the Saddle-New vein area.
“The location and orientation of both the Pond and Saddle porphyry zones align with well-established porphyry alteration zone models,” said First Tellurium consulting geologist and qualified person Dr. Lee Groat in the press release. “The alteration zones observed on surface indicate that a potassic zone lies in the subsurface at the Pond area. This is one of the key markers for a mineralized copper porphyry. All of this information reinforces the premise that Deer Horn supports a copper porphyry system in an area that has never been drilled. The initial drilling in September will give us further crucial information.”
