The copper porphyry core has a 1-kilometre diameter and is part of a mineralised system that extends across 8 kilometres including the Aucu gold resource of 484,000 ounces grading 5 g/t gold.
White Cliff believes the central copper porphyry is responsible for both the outlying high-grade gold mineralisation and the core copper mineralisation.
Other new copper and gold zones also identified
The survey has also assisted in the identification of new gold and copper anomalies to the North and East of the porphyry system.
Notably, this may indicate additional potential mineralised porphyries and additional structurally controlled gold mineralisation.
The company has conducted detailed mapping and sampling which will be released when assays are available.

White Cliff has conducted further sampling and mapping which has resulted in the identification of new gold and copper zones.
The company will release a formal exploration update once this sampling and assaying is completed.
