Recent drilling at Sun Metals’ Stardust project in north-central British Columbia confirms the continuity and strength of mineralization at the project’s 421 zone, the company says.

The junior reported intervals as long as 58 metres grading 2.49% copper, 2.61 g/t gold and 44.3 g/t silver. That intercept was part of a 107-metre interval (starting at 546 metres depth) of 1.64% copper, 1.77 g/t gold, 28.6 g/t silver, and 0.03% zinc in hole 430D.

Hole 428D returned 142.35 metres (from 493.5 metres downhole) of 1.22% copper, 1.28 g/t gold, 21.8 g/t silver and 0.41% zinc.

All three stepout holes reported were drilled downdip and to the south of discovery hole 421, which returned 100 metres of 2.51% copper, 3.03 g/t gold and 52.5 g/t silver late last year.
