April 2 2024 – TheNewswire – Zonte Metals (TSXV:ZON) (XOTC:EREPF)

Zonte Metals is pleased to announce the discovery of a large copper-in-soil anomaly at the K9 target, on its Cross Hills Copper Project in Newfoundland and Labrador.


  • Cu-in-soil anomaly measures 1500m in length and up to 1100m in width

  • Soil anomaly is coincident with magnetic and gravity anomalies, and

  • recent prospecting has discovered several new copper showings within the soil target.

The K9 target is defined by coincident magnetic and gravity anomalies sitting in a structural zone. Previous exploration discovered grades up to 1.76% Cu and 12 g/t Ag with trace gold in outcrop. A previously partially defined soil anomaly was also discovered at the K9 target, wherein many of the soil samples were amongst the highest through the project (see April 12, 2021 and September 20, 2021 press releases).

The expanded soil sampling program has identified a copper-in-soil anomaly measuring 1500m in length and up to 1100m in width and sits on top of the coincident magnetic and gravity anomalies. The newly discovered soil anomaly extends beyond the limits of the open-ended gravity anomaly to the south, where it is coincident with the magnetic trend. Recent prospecting within the soil anomaly has identified a mix of sulphides including chalcopyrite in several new locations (see Fig 1 below). The copper mineral type appears to show a gradation from chalcocite and bornite, with pyrite, in the central portions of the target to chalcopyrite and pyrite at the ends.

Additional exploration, including expanding the gravity grid and additional mapping and prospecting, is required on the southern sector of the soil anomaly. For more information on the K9 target and the Cross Hills Copper Project please visit
