ORTAC Resources Ltd Tuesday said it has received the final results from the completed trenching programme on its Yacob Dewar deposit in Eritrea, which has confirmed the presence of near surface high-grade gold and copper mineralisation.
“The results have once again provided clear evidence that Yacob Dewar is showing encouraging signs of its potential to be a commercial mine. Once more, good gold grades were intersected over decent widths, and encouraging copper grades were intersected adjacent to the gold mineralisation distant from the high-grade copper zone targeted by the recently completed trenching and drilling programme,” said Chief Executive Vassilios Carellas in a statement.

“We are encouraged by the second batch of assay results which demonstrate that the copper mineralisation within the core of the deposit, continues to the south and remains strongly mineralised with excellent grades across broad intersections,” – CEO Vassilios Carellas
ORTAC Resources Ltd today said the second batch of assay results from drilling at its Yacob Dewar prospect in Eritrea has confirmed high-grade copper in the region and shows good gold results.
The natural resource development company said the second period of drilling, which was carried out by Andiamo Exploration Ltd, found a 1.11% copper region over a 31 metre space from the surface and a region of 0.8% copper over a 30 metre space from the surface.
