Analyst Insight – provided by Independent Investment Research

Doré Copper is a TSX-V-listed company that’s engaged in the acquisition, exploration and evaluation of mineral properties. The company completed a qualifying transaction on December 13, 2019, establishing itself as a copper-gold explorer and developer in the Chibougamau area of Québec, Canada.

Doré Copper, through its wholly-owned subsidiary CBAY Minerals Inc., holds a 100% interest in the exploration-stage Corner Bay project and the exploration-stage Cedar Bay project, both located in the vicinity of Chibougamau, Québec, as well as the 2,700-tpd Copper Rand mill.

Doré Copper also has an option agreement to acquire 100% of the Joe Mann property, whereby if certain payments and spending requirements are met over a three-year period, the company will become 100% owner of the 1,990-hectare Joe Mann property.

Doré recently announced initial intercepts from its 2020 drill program. The maiden 2020 drill program has successfully expanded mineralization at Corner Bay, including one of the highest-grade intercepts to date with hole CB-20-17 that returned 9.08% Cu over 7.0 metres (TW approx. 4.6 metres).  This intercept is located 100 metres to the south along strike of holes CB-18-07 (3.5 % Cu over 13.3 metres, including 5.22% Cu over 5.11 metres) and CB-18-06 (2.33% Cu over 12.3 metres including 3.98% Cu over 4.3 metres).

The results of the drilling program suggest that Dore will be able to expand the mineral resource at Corner Bay, one of the highest-grade copper deposits in the Americas. The deposit remains open in all directions and there are numerous targets that will be tested in the future. In addition, Dore has conducted a down-hole EM survey on a shear structure east of the main vein that will generate additional targets.

Drilling has commenced at Cedar Bay to test the high-grade gold mineralization of the parallel 10-20 zones, where previous drilling intercepted numerous high-grade intercepts including 2.4 metres of 19.5 g/t gold and 1.67% copper, as well as test the main vein at Cedar Bay at depth.

After the Cedar Bay program, drilling will commence at the high-grade gold Joe Mann mine to test the downdip potential where previous drilling intercepted 3.02 meters of 30.3 g/t gold.
