Vancouver, BC – Coast Copper Corp. (“Coast Copper” or the “Company”; TSX-V: COCO; formerly Roughrider Exploration Limited) announces an update on its 100% owned 520-hectare Home Brew property (the “Property”) located in southern B.C. The Property, which is located adjacent to Gold Mountain Mining Corp.’s Elk Gold project¹ 60 kilometers (“km”) east of Merritt, lies along Highway 97c (Okanagan Connector; see Figure 1). The Property covers two undrilled minfile gold occurrences; the Brew and Annie Oakley zones, which cover narrow quartz veins hosting gold and silver values from historical rock samples that assayed up to 2.23 grams per tonne (“g/t”) gold and 1,046 g/t silver, respectively².
During the 2021 field season, Peter E. Walcott & Associates completed a 100-line km airborne magnetic survey of the Property. that highlighted several magnetic highs that correlate well with both known and possibly unknown intrusions into the dominantly volcanic package. Magnetics also display linear west-south westerly trends that roughly parallel the vein trends on the immediately adjacent Elk Gold project (see Figure 1).
Coast Copper has recently purchased a 100% ownership interest in one small internal claim from an arms-length individual.
Adam Travis, the Company’s CEO comments: “Congratulations to our neighbors at Gold Mountain on receiving their final approval to start mining at the historic Elk Mine and updating their resource. We recognized exploration potential in the surrounding area in early 2020 and staked our Home Brew property located adjacent to the Elk Gold project and within 2 km of the past gold-producing Elk open pit. The compilation of historical data combined with our new, detailed airborne magnetic survey shows that historical occurrences are lining up with the margins of magnetic highs (intrusive bodies) and linear structures not unlike the vein trends noted on the adjacent Gold Mountain property. We wish Gold Mountain continued success with the commencement of commercial production as we continue to advance exploration on our adjacent ground.”
