True North Copper heading in right direction with Camp Gossans target works

True North Copper (ASX:TNC) talks to Mining.com.au about the strongly anomalous copper-cobalt zones from a systematic mapping and rock chip campaign at the Camp Gossans prospect.

One of the company’s 2024 priority exploration targets, Camp Gossans is 1.2km along strike from the Vero Resource at the Mt Oxide Project.

True North Copper completed sampling at Camp Gossans in December 2023. True North Copper’s Managing Director Marty Costello explains why Camp Gossans is a high priority 2024 exploration target. “We believe it holds exceptional discovery potential. Mapping and rock chip sampling identified highly anomalous copper and cobalt zones.

The footprint and geochemical results at Camp Gossans are also similar in size, mineralisation style and geochemical anomalism to the discovery outcrops at Esperanza and Esperanza South, which have produced significant copper at the Capricorn Copper Project that lies 25kms to the south.

Despite significant historical investment by previous Mt Oxide owners at the Vero Resource, multiple prospects including Camp Gossans, have never been systematically explored or drill tested. Camp Gossans is now a confirmed TNC priority for geophysics programs and drilling in 2024.”
