Tower Resources (TSXV:TWR) Completes Follow-Up Drilling at Rabbit North, Explores New Zones for Cu-Au-Mo and Gold

Tower Resources (TSXV:TWR) has completed its first follow-up diamond drilling program at the Rabbit North property in Kamloops, British Columbia. The program aimed to further explore the Rainbow porphyry copper-gold-molybdenum (Cu-Au-Mo) zone and the Thunder gold zone, which are newly discovered areas on the property.

The drilling program consisted of four holes, numbered RN23-046 to RN23-049, covering a total depth of 1052.2 meters. Holes RN23-046 and RN23-047 were drilled in the Thunder Zone, while RN23-048 and RN23-049 targeted the Rainbow Zone. These zones are covered by over 15 meters of glacial till and partly by up to 40 meters of Chilcotin basalt flows. Beneath the basalt, a weathering profile suggests potential for supergene enrichment of primary sulphide mineralization.

The Rainbow Zone, characterized by a magmatic-hydrothermal breccia, was the focus of holes RN23-048 and RN23-049. These holes aimed to confirm the presence of Cu-Au-Mo mineralization and assess its economic potential, following earlier discoveries in holes RN23-041 and RN23-042.

The Thunder Zone, investigated by holes RN23-046 and RN23-047, was initially explored through earlier holes RN23-039 and RN23-041. The objective was to determine the structure and extent of the gold mineralization in this area.

Hole RN23-048 was drilled to explore the western thickening of the Rainbow Zone, while RN23-049 aimed to ascertain the continuity of mineralization across a magnetic anomaly. Hole RN23-046 was drilled to intersect the Thunder Zone near a previous intersection, and RN23-047 was oriented to confirm or reject the hypothesis of a single gold zone. Tower Resources plans to announce the results of the drilling program after completing the analysis of all assays.
