District Intersects 8.65 m at 2.9% Copper, 0.4 g/t Gold and 3.0 m at 2.8% Copper, 1.2 g/t Au on the Tomtebo Property
Vancouver, British Columbia--(June 28, 2021) - District Metals Corp. (TSXV: DMX) (FSE: DFPP) ("District" or the "Company") is pleased to report assay results on four drill holes (TOM21-013 to -016) from the maiden drilling program at the high grade polymetallic Tomtebo Property located in the Bergslagen Mining District in south-central Sweden. Drill holes TOM21-004 to -012 were completed at the Steffenburgs and Oscarsgruvan zones where drill core samples from these eight holes were batched together resulting in a longer turnaround time, and the Company expects these assay results will be released within the next two weeks.
Holes TOM21-013 to -016 were drilled below open pits where copper sulphides were historically extracted at the Gårdsgruvans zone in the southwest portion of the historic Tomtebo Mine. Of particular interest, holes TOM21-013 and -016 successfully intersected vein networks of copper-rich sulphides within strongly altered felsic volcanic rocks. These vein networks occur over intervals of approximately 50 m in both drill holes with sub-sections of higher grade copper mineralization highlighted below:
TOM21-013 intersected 8.65 m at 2.92% Cu and 0.43 g/t Au (76.65 to 85.30 m) including 7.05 m at 3.47% Cu and 0.52 g/t Au (77.45 to 84.50 m), and 5.15 m at 1.56% Cu and 0.32 g/t Au (191.30 to 196.45 m).
TOM21-016 intersected 17.2 m at 0.94% Cu and 0.28 g/t Au (191.6 to 208.8 m) including 3.0 m at 2.80% Cu and 1.21 g/t Au (201.1 to 204.1 m).
