Carube seeks to reignite Jamaica’s copper industry – by Richard Quarisa (Northern Miner – November 28, 2017)

Drilling at Carube Copper’s (TSXV: CUC) 100% owned copper-gold Bellas Gate property in Jamaica returned positive drill results this October.

Carube owns 11 properties across Jamaica covering 536 sq. km of mineral rights, but its focus is on Bellas Gate, which consists of two 100% owned prospecting licenses covering 84 sq. km. The licenses are located within highly deformed, altered and mineralized Cretaceous rocks within the central inlier of Jamaica.

From May to September, the company carried out a 1,900 metre drill program on Bellas Gate that targeted three main zones: Provost, Hendley, and Provost South East.

The company drilled six holes on Bellas Gate’s south alteration zone — a 5 km long trend between its Camel porphyry in the south and its Hendley prospect in the north. So far, it has returned results on three of them in the Provost zone.

Hole PVT-17-4 showed continuous copper mineralization over 340 metres from 46 metres downhole ending in mineralization with a 55.3 metre interval grading 0.51% copper equivalent including a higher grade section containing 14 metres of 1.04% copper equivalent.
