Copper Lake Resources Ltd. (TSX-V:CPL) (Frankfurt:W0I) ("Copper Lake" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that drilling has commenced on its Marshall Lake property located 250 kilometres north East of Thunder Bay, Ontario.

The purpose of the program is to test three VTEM conductors identified in a comprehensive compilation of previous work on the property conducted in 2014-2017. Each target is related to previously detected, shallow Cu-Zn-Ag-Au massive sulphide occurrences that remain open at depth. 

Terry MacDonald, CEO comments, “We are excited to get underway. This minimum 2,000 metre drilling program will test primary targets derived from detailed compilation and reinterpretation of a significant volume of historic work on the property dating back to 1954. Despite its long history, numerous showings and historic resource estimates, the previous fragmented land position has only recently been consolidated. Results of the compilation effort allow us to look at the bigger picture and establish priorities based on a new geological model.”

The Marshall Lake property covers 10,430 hectares of an Archean felsic volcanic centre overlying a synvolcanic pluton located in the eastern portion of the Wabigoon sub province. It is deemed favourable to host Cu-Zn-Ag-Au VMS (Volcanic Massive Sulphide) deposits of potential economic merit. A comprehensive discussion of the scope and details of historic work on the property and development of the new targets and geological model is available in a NI 43-101 Technical Report dated June 7, 2016 and authored by Thomas Hart, PGeo, (see www.sedar.com or www.copperlakeresources.com)
