Vancouver, British Columbia – TheNewswire – November 10, 2021 – Vizsla Copper Corp. (TSXV:VCU) (OTC:VCUFF) (“Vizsla Copper” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the start of an airborne geophysical survey at the Blueberry copper project in central British Columbia.  The Blueberry Project (the “Project”) is 100% owned by the Company and is located southwest of Houston, BC (Figure 1).

The Survey

Expert Geophysics Ltd. has been contracted to fly a 742 line-km Mobile Magnetotelluric (MobileMT) and magnetic helicopter borne geophysical survey over the most prospective portions of the Blueberry Project (Figure 2) with flight lines spaced 300m apart.  The survey is now underway and will help to characterize the geology of the area and attempt to locate intrusive rock types and alteration zones associated with porphyry copper mineralization.  Surveying is expected to be complete within one to two weeks time and data processing and interpretation of the results will follow immediately afterward.  

The Project

The Blueberry Project is a copper exploration property located in central BC, 30km southwest of the town of Houston.  The Project is comprised of 23 contiguous mineral claims totalling 20,265ha immediately adjacent to the Stars copper discovery belonging to M3 Metals Corp. and Aurwest Resources Corp.  Blueberry is located along an underexplored and till covered portion of the Babine porphyry belt that stretches from north of Babine Lake to south of the Huckleberry mine, 40km south of the Project.  Regional aeromagnetic surveys indicate the presence of several large magnetic high anomalies within the Project boundary that may represent covered intrusions that are prospective for porphyry copper mineralization.
