TORONTO ON / ACCESSWIRE / September 10, 2019 / Rockcliff Metals Corporation ("Rockcliff" or the "Company") (CSE: RCLF) (FRANKFURT: RO0, WKN: A2H60G) is pleased to announce that a 100,000 metre, 2 phase drill program has commenced on its Snow Lake Project. In Phase 1 of the drill program, a total of 5 drills have been mobilized on three separate properties with an additional 3 drills planned to be mobilized by the end of the month. The 16-month drill program will initially focus on enhancing several advance-staged deposits. The Phase 2 drill program will attempt to expand the Company's historical resources and drill test for significant new grass roots discoveries on the Company's very prospective land position. Rockcliff is well-funded, and is now the largest development and exploration junior landholder in the Flin Flon-Snow Lake greenstone belt, the largest Paleoproterozoic VMS ("Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide") district (copper, gold, zinc, silver) in the world.
Rockcliff's President and CEO Alistair Ross commented: "This marks the first step in implementing our strategy of finalizing sufficient knowledge of several resources that will allow the next steps of choosing the optimal project to take into production at the earliest opportunity. Our aim is to begin treating material through our leased mill as soon as possible. "
Phase 1 Drill Program
Drilling has begun on the Talbot, Rail and Bur deposits. The Tower deposit will also be drill tested in the Phase 1 drill program when its work permit is finalized. Approximately 50,000 metres in approximately 85 drill holes is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2019 on the 4 deposits. The purpose of the initial drill phase is to enhance and expand the present advance staged resources on each property which will assist in fast tracking several of these properties to the pre-feasibility phase.
Phase 2 Drill Program
The Phase 2 drill program is scheduled to commence in the coming months and continue to the end of 2020. The purpose of this phase of drilling will be to attempt to advance and grow historical resource within the property portfolio (Copperman, Penex, Lon and Morgan deposits), to expand known zones of mineralization and to discover additional new grass roots copper discoveries.
