TORONTO, June 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Copper Lake Resources Ltd. (TSX-V:CPL) (Frankfurt:W0I) ("Copper Lake" or the "Company") today announced that it has increased its land position by staking an additional 192 claim cells on its eastern and western boundaries. The staking consolidates known extensions of the Marshall Lake felsic volcanic complex and overlying iron formation. Encouraging results from the recently completed 14-hole winter drilling program highlight potential of this underexplored greenstone belt to host precious metals enriched Cu-Zn-Ag-Au volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) deposits (see press release dated May 23, 2018).

Staking to the west covers projected strike extensions of the favourable horizon hosting known deposits and showings. This area has seen little historic exploration work due to limited outcrop exposure and was not flown by recent VTEM surveys.
Staking to the east covers strong, untested VTEM conductors associated with tuffs immediately overlying coarse felsic fragmental rocks interpreted as vent facies cryptodomes situated along a synvolcanic fault by the Ontario Geological Survey. These conductors have never been drilled.
The new staking comprises an additional 4,224 hectares bringing the contiguous Marshall Lake land position to 14,700 hectares (147 square km). The Marshall Lake property is road-accessible, located 250 kilometres northeast of Thunder Bay, Ontario and covers a prominent calc-alkaline felsic volcanic centre and synvolcanic intrusion within the eastern portion of the Archean-age Wabigoon Subprovince.
The Company is currently conducting fieldwork to ground truth these two promising conductors and assess access routes to mobilize drilling equipment to test these targets as soon as possible.
