High-grade copper reported at United Downs


Cornish Metals has reported findings of high-grade copper from its ongoing test drilling at United Downs.

CEO Richard Williams said: “Management believes that these latest intersections clearly demonstrate the potential for United Downs to host a copper/tin/silver mineral resource to complement the identified tin mineral resource at South Crofty.

“Confirmation that high grade mineralisation continues beneath the historic United Mines validates the exploration potential we believe exists throughout Cornwall and within our mineral rights holdings.

“It is very interesting to see the tin grades starting to appear in the deeper intersections, which adds weight to our theory that the whole United Downs area is prospective for tin beneath the old copper mines, the same zonation that is clearly evident at South Crofty, just a few kilometres to the west.”
