"We've been very pleased with the rate of production from our single drill and now expect to double this rate that our second drill has arrived," said Charles Beaudry, vice-president of exploration at QC Copper and Gold and a director.

"Once all the assay results are received, we will communicate with shareholders and input these results into our mineral resource estimate being managed by our independent qualified persons. The company is fully funded for this work, and we look forward to delivering positive news for our shareholders," he added.

This 20,000m drill program includes 75 drill holes distributed between the Opemiska project's Springer and Perry mines to delineate a near-surface, in-pit mineral resource, said QC Copper.

Many of the planned holes are twins of old surface collared mine holes to confirm historical mine assays and provide infill sampling because there is limited historical sampling due to the mine's focus on high-grade veins.

The Opemiska property covers 12,782 hectares and includes the past-producing Springer, Perry, Robitaille and Cooke mines, owned and operated by Falconbridge.
