ROADCUT DISCOVERY: Chalcanthite Breccia pipes

As drill pads were laid out Teck intersected chalcanthite-rich exposures of newly recognized breccia pipes. High grade copper was found on one side of the concession associated with quartz diorite/tonalite dikes (Fig 5). The breccia pipes are exposed for hundreds of meters in drillroads. Drill pads are ready. Videos and photos available on YouTube at “Milena Mining” and at the MilenaMining.com webpage show areas identified, mapped and sampled by Teck Lta. as a mineralized breccia pipe (fig 6).

Teck had planned to do more drilling and set up pads to test the outcropping breccia pipes (Fig 6).
