Coast Copper Doubles the Size of its Sully Property Adjacent to PJX Resources


VANCOUVER, BC, June 18, 2024 /CNW/ - Coast Copper Corp. ("Coast Copper" or the "Company"; (TSXV: COCO) is pleased to announce it has doubled the size of its 100% owned Sully property to 10,852 hectares by staking and entering into five arms-length purchase agreements. The Sully property in southeastern British Columbia ("BC"), Canada, has favorable geology, geophysical magnetic signatures and historical results and occurs to both the north and the east of PJX Resources Inc.'s ("PJX") Dewdney Trail property¹ where they have recently made a new discovery of Sullivan-style base metal mineralization. For more information, please see the Coast Copper news release of February 12, 2024.

The Sully Property is within the Vulcan Tectonic Zone which hosts the Sullivan, Republic, Rossland, Sheep Creek and Pend O'Reille Mining Districts. Highlights from the newly acquired ground include (see Figure 1) ²:

Adam Travis Coast Copper CEO comments: "We are pleased to have increased the size of our Sully Property in the historic Sullivan Mining Camp as it is prospective for both Sullivan-style massive sulphides and also copper, gold and molybdenum porphyries associated with Cretaceous aged monzonite and syenite intrusions. Before PJX made their discovery of Sullivan-style mineralization on claims adjacent to ours, they also noted significant, intrusion related gold, copper and silver mineralization with values up to 15.59 g/t Au, 1.11% Cu and 721 g/t Ag (see PJX news release dated November 15, 2022) ¹ ² ?. Consequently, Coast Copper has acquired similar syenite intrusions on the geological trend to PJX's property. While we remain focused on our Empire Mine property, we continue to complete strategic mineral property acquisitions in areas of interest. We look forward to completing our first field program at Sully in the coming weeks and following up on our new geological understanding of the area."
