Bam Bam Resources Corp. has discovered a granodiorite porphyry underlying areas where the Company has drilled significant copper. The discovery strongly supports the large scale copper deposit emerging from the historic mining and recent drilling.
- Core hole MHB-22 was drilled about 2 kilometers southeast of the outcropping copper oxide in the historic mine area and intersected over 1200 ft (365.8 m) of granodiorite with extensive porphyry-style alteration.
- The copper sulfide intersection in MHB-8 drilled in 2021:
- 65 ft (19.8 m) @ 0.35% Cu & 13.9 g/t Ag 865-930 ft (264-284 m)
- 0.49% Copper Equivalent (CuEq)
CuEq=Length-weighted silver converted to copper using US$17/oz Ag & US$2.50/lb. Cu
is just above what is now known to be the same granodiorite making this a good indicator for potential sulfide copper grades.
- Cross Cutting relationships between the Granodiorite and the Rhyolite Assemblage Rocks indicates a very robust, strongly mineralizing magma chamber.
- The Oxide Enriched Copper Mineralization Zone reported on by BBR (NR March 8, 2022) is outlined on Section 4502840N above and 4503040N below.
- Copper and molybdenum values were generally low however they showed a distinct increase around 930 ft (281.9 m) to the end of the hole at 1802.5 ft (549.4 m), where a strong increase in secondary biotite and quartz veining with magnetite was noted.
Oxide copper in the enriched oxide zone are shown below on Section 4503040N.
David Greenway, President and CEO, commented: “We are thrilled about the discovery of granodiorite porphyry underlying areas with drill results of significant copper. This discovery strongly supports that Majuba Hill is a District size copper deposit with a billion-ton potential.”
Bam Bam drilled 4,541.4 meters (14,900 ft) in 15 RC holes and 859.4 meters (2,820 ft) in 2 core holes during the 2021 drilling program. All intervals were assayed for total copper that was determined using a four-acid digestion process and analyzed by ALS Method ME-ICP61.
Core holes MHB-20 and MHB-22 discovered the widespread extent of the granodiorite intrusive. The core holes were located to drill into the Copper-Gold soils Target which is coincident with a large remanently magnetic zone that surrounds the Rhyolite Intrusive Assemblage Rocks at Majuba Hill. A deep, northeast-trending Induced Polarization (IP) high also crosses the Copper-Gold Target.
Multiple overlapping porphyry alteration events that were identified throughout the previous drilling and historical work were noted also noted throughout the granodiorite core. In addition to widespread propylitic and phyllic alteration their appears to be extensive potassic alteration and magnetite bearing quartz veining. A second type of tourmaline has also been noted.
These all indicate the granodiorite is probably related to the magma chamber that produced the copper at Majuba Hill. The cross-cutting relationship of the granodiorite and the rhyolite intrusive rocks combined with the magnetic anomalies and the widespread IP geophysics indicate very high potential for a large, copper porphyry at Majuba Hill.
Development and Infrastructure
Copper mineralization at Majuba is centered within a large contiguous land position. Bam Bam has 100% control of the emerging Majuba Hill Copper District by private surface and mineral ownership, patented mining claims, and Federal Lode Mining claims. The Company has engaged EM Strategies-A Westland Resources Inc. Company provide long-range environmental planning services.
The property is in Nevada, a Tier 1 mining district that is the most mining friendly place in North America and has well developed transportation, power, and workforce infrastructure. Majuba is easily reached by 23 miles of well-maintained roads leading from U.S. Interstate 80. The existing highways are sufficient for transportation of exploration-size heavy equipment. Development logistics would use the 4 lane Interstate 80 highway, Union Pacific railroad tracks and power, natural gas, and fiber optic transmission lines in the rail – highway corridor.
Quality Assurance/Quality Control (“QA/QC”) Measures, Chain of Custody
The Company has implemented a QA/QC program using best industry practices at the Majuba Hill Project. The samples are transported from the BBR secure warehouse or directly from the project to the ALS Sample Prep Facility in Reno or Elko, Nevada. ALS then transports the prepared pulps to their analytical lab in Reno, Nevada or Vancouver, B.C. Soil and rock chip samples are transported by the company directly to Elko or Reno, Nevada.
Drill core samples are sawn in half lengthwise and one half is placed in labeled cloth sample bags. All samples are analyzed for copper, gold, silver, and 33 other elements. Gold is determined by ALS method Au-AA23 which is a fire assay with an AAS finish on a 30 gram split. Copper, silver and the remaining 31 elements are determined by ALS method ME-ICP61 which is a four acid digestion and ICP-AES assay. Approximately 5% of the submitted samples are drill duplicates and copper-gold-porphyry commercial standard reference material pulps.

About Bam Bam Resources Corp.
Bam Bam Resources Corp. (CSE: BBR / OTC: NPEZF / FSE: 4NPB) is engaged in the identification, review and acquisition of latter stage copper and copper/silver/gold assets. This is in direct response to the growing worldwide demand and lack of supply for precious metals fueled by the Green New Deal in the US and most other developed nations with similar programs aimed at addressing climate change. Such programs are heavily reliant on silver, gold and especially copper to produce Electric Vehicles and other renewable power sources, as well as building infrastructure to provide clean and affordable electricity.
The flagship project is the Majuba Hill copper, silver and gold District located 156 miles outside Reno, Nevada, USA. Management has been mandated to focus on safe, mining friendly jurisdictions where government regulations are supportive of mining operations.
