Cascadero Copper – Taron cesium drill permit issued, program ready to start

Cascadero Copper {TSX.V: CCD} announced the drill permit required for their next drill program has been issued, and they are ready to commence the program.

This work is for the Taron Cesium showing, and should commence 26th February 2017.




Cascadero Copper {TSX.V: CCD} – The Company has received notice that work can start on the Taron cesium showing. The advance payment to the drill Contractor is in process and the Contractor will mobilise the required equipment to rehabilitate the access roads to the property to the drill hole collar locations. The camp for 18 workers should be on site within 7 days and the drill is expected to be on site February 26.


The Company is planning to drill 29 vertical HQ3 core holes to a depth of 75 metres for a total of 2,175 metres in a grid style pattern that will test an area of about 1.30 square kilometers in the southwest portion of the property. This is an area that has three previous drill holes (2009) and several hundred metres of hand and excavator trenches (2005 to 2007). Additionally, the area has variable outcrops that all assayed cesium.


The Program is expected to take 50 days to complete. The Company has retained GeoSim Services Inc who will act as the Qualified Person (QP) for the program.


About Cesium

Cesium (chemical symbol Cs) is a rare metal best known for its extreme chemical reactivity. Cesium hydroxide forms the start point of myriad end uses, including Cesium Formate (CsCHO2), the industries premium drilling and completion fluid. Cesium Formate is an environmentally benign solution with a high-density and low-viscosity used to control formation pressures and temperatures in drilling of deep oil wells (HPHT).

As a dense medium, cesium formate is used to separate DNA and in metallurgical testing and is also well known for artificially produced radioactive isotopes used to treat various types of cancer. Cesium compounds and chemicals are used in photo-emissive devices, experimental magneto-hydrodynamic electricity generation, atomic clocks for telecommunications and GPS navigation systems, catalysts in plastic manufacturing, specialty glasses, ion propulsion rocket motors, high-density alkaline batteries, coatings for solar cells, and petroleum refining. Research continues to generate new applications for cesium compounds.
