Cantex Mine Development Corp. [TSXV-CD; OTCQB-CTXDF] reported that it has intersected copper mineralization in its first three holes drilled at its North Rackla project, Yukon.

Since drilling first commenced on June 3, 2024 three diamond drill holes have now been completed at the Copper Project on the western side of the company’s North Rackla property.  Previous drilling on this project intersected 2.5 metres of 3.93% copper including 1 metre of 7.32% copper.

Hole YKDD24-287 was drilled at a -45 degree dip and 13 degree azimuth. It intersected 1.8 metres of an estimated 8% chalcopyrite contained within a quartz carbonate breccia from 7.1 metres depth.  Hole YKDD24-288 was drilled from the same pad at a -45 degree dip at an azimuth of 35 degrees.  This hole intersected 17 metres of an estimated 2% chalcopyrite from 9.5 metres depth.  Hole YKDD24-289 intersected 5.05 metres of an estimated 2% chalcopyrite from 3.3 metres depth.  The hole was from the same pad, at a dip of -45 degrees and an azimuth of 305 degrees.

Following logging the mineralized portions of the holes are split.  One half of the split core is in the process of being submitted to laboratories for sample preparation and analysis for copper, gold and associated elements.  Results will be reported as soon as available.

Cantex is focused on its 100%-owned, 20,000-hectare North Rackla Project located 150 km northeast of Mayo, Yukon Territory, Canada where high-grade massive sulphide mineralization has been discovered.

Over 60,000 metres of drilling has defined high-grade silver-lead-zinc-germanium mineralization over 2.3 km of strike length and 700 metres depth.  The mineralization remains open along strike and to depth.  The company is led by Dr. Charles Fipke, C.M., the founder of Ekati, Canada’s first diamond mine, NWT.
