Kutcho Copper Corp. (TSXV:KC) (OTC:KCCFF) (“Kutcho Copper” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that drilling has started at its 100% owned Kutcho high grade copper-zinc project located in British Columbia.

The drilling program at Kutcho will be conducted with two drill rigs and consists of a combination of geotechnical, metallurgical and resource expansion drilling efforts. The focus of resource expansion drilling will be on the Main lens, where the highest grade and thickest portions of the inferred category of resources exists. Approximately 12,000 metres of drilling are planned for the 2018 field season, which is expected to be completed by mid-October.

“We are pleased that drilling is underway, a key component of our Feasibility Study work program,” stated Vince Sorace, President and CEO of Kutcho Copper Corp. “We look forward to the results as we move through the drilling season.”

To date, Kutcho Copper has successfully assembled an optimized team of engineering firms, led by Ausenco, to complete the Feasibility Study, while ERM/RTEC is leading ongoing environmental and permitting efforts for the project.

In addition, a recent exploration targeting effort has strengthened the Company’s belief that there is potential for multiple new near mine and greenfields discoveries in the district.
