VANCOUVER, BC, May 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Surge Copper Corp. (TSXV: SURG) (Frankfurt: G6D2) ("Surge" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an outline of its 2021 planned exploration programs and strategy across its 121,800 hectare contiguous mineral claims located in the Huckleberry district in central British Columbia.
- First-ever Z-axis Tipper Electromagnetic ("ZTEM") geophysical survey to be flown across entire district in collaboration with Imperial Metals Corporation
- Minimum 5,000 metre drill program at the West Seel deposit area, targeting further resource expansion and definition, in anticipation of a resource toward the end of the year
- Minimum 5,000 metre drill program at the Berg deposit targeting improved definition and expansion of the near-surface high-grade zones
- Reconnaissance exploration activity at the advanced-stage Bergette exploration target to move previously un-drilled areas of this target into a drill-ready state, with the potential for a few scout drilling holes
- Large regional reconnaissance exploration, prospecting, rock-chip and soil sampling, and geological mapping including preliminary follow-up on high priority targets resulting from ZTEM survey as well as historical precious metals targets including the Captain Mine, Troitsa Peak, and Hope prospects (see Figure 1)
- Minimum 3,000 metre trenching and scout drill program on multiple new targets
Leif Nilsson, CEO, commented: "In the last five months, through multiple transactions and direct staking, Surge has consolidated a strategically significant land position in what we believe is one of the most prospective areas of British Columbia for porphyry copper exploration, and which also boasts excellent regional infrastructure. During the recent winter program, we completed 20,028 metres of resource expansion and exploration drilling at the Seel deposits, representing approximately one-fifth of the total historical drilling investment at those deposits. Our objective with the next program is threefold: first to materially finish the job of determining the size and extents of the Seel deposits, second to improve the definition of and possibly expand the high-grade, near-surface zones at Berg, and third to begin to systematically advance many of the regional exploration opportunities in the district including new targets that may come out of the ZTEM survey and historical gold showings."
