Highland Copper Company Inc. (TSXV:HI) announced results from 18 additional diamond drill holes at the Keweenaw project in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

As quoted in the press release:

In addition to high grade copper zones in holes CEN382, CEN337, and CEN339 elevated silver grades were also intersected. Considerable lengths of 0.20 – 0.75% Cu mineralization continue to occur as lower grade envelopes next to the higher grade zones and as separate zones as in CEN 320. Mineralization containing less than 0.75% Cu was not included in the historic resource estimate of the 543S deposit, although these lower grade intersections could provide additional upside for the deposit at current copper prices.

Highland’s Vice President – Exploration,  Dr. Ross R. Grunwald, said:

The internal continuity of high grade assay intersections in individual drill holes continues to be notable.
