The Mackenzie property is a 125-square-kilometre area where previous work by Carube Copper and its predecessor Miocene Metals identified three copper-bearing trends.
Carube’s current exploration on the project is focused on two of the areas, the Bornite and Breccia trend prospects. The company said on Wednesday that 40 samples have been submitted for assay.
The Breccia trend hosts wide zones of potential mineralization, with copper staining having been observed in a number of outcrops. At the Bornite trend, vein-style mineralization is defined along a 7.5 kilometre-long strike length.
The explorer collected 35 samples from Breccia and 5 from Bornite, it said..
Mackenzie, which is 100% owned by Carude, is located within the Cascade Magmatic Arc, which extends from northern California to the southern portion of the Alaska Panhandle. The area is home to some of North America’s significant mineral deposits including Quartz Hill in Alaska and Glacier Peak and Margaret in Washington State.
Shares of Carube were trading at C$0.04 in Toronto on Wednesday afternoon.
