VANCOUVER, BC, Sept. 8, 2022 /CNW/ - Capella Minerals Ltd. (TSXV: CMIL) (OTCQB: CMILF) (FRA: N7D2) ("Capella" or the "Company") is pleased to advise that it has filed an independent National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101") technical report on the Company's high-grade Hessjøgruva copper-zinc-cobalt massive sulfide ("VMS") project in central Norway. This report represents the first NI 43-101 compliant technical report to be completed on the Hessjøgruva project and provides a detailed review of all exploration activities undertaken to date (including the historical diamond drill programs that were undertaken during the 1970's).
Eric Roth, Capella's President and CEO, commented: "The Hessjøgruva technical report provides Capella with an extremely solid base from which to plan and execute further work programs. We currently view Hessjøgruva as being a cornerstone asset in a broader copper-zinc-cobalt VMS district which includes two other 100% Capella-owned projects – the adjacent Kongensgruve concessions, which host the former mines at Rødalen and Kongensgruve plus a former copper concentrating facility and tailings dam, and the nearby Kjøli project, where 4 priority target areas have been delineated for drill testing. I look forward to keeping the market updated as we advanced our projects in the Hessjøgruva district".
The independent NI 43-101 technical report for the Hessjøgruva project has been completed by GeoVista Aktiebolag ("GeoVista"). All other technical information in this news release relating to the Kongensgruve and Kjøli projects has been prepared in accordance with Canadian regulatory requirements set out in NI 43-101, and approved by Eric Roth, the Company's President & CEO, a Director, and a Qualified Person under NI 43-101. Mr. Roth holds a Ph.D. in Economic Geology from the University of Western Australia, is a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (AusIMM) and is a Fellow of the Society of Economic Geologists (SEG). Mr. Roth has 30 years of experience in international minerals exploration and mining project evaluation.
