Kip Keen at Mineweb has a new interview with Dave Lowell, Chairman & CEO of Lowell Copper (TSXV:JDL), discussing the Ricardo property in Chile.

Finding an ore body at Ricardo will be challenging, Lowell says. “We're looking for vertical tabular slabs of ore with no alteration halo on either side and it probably will be deep, which makes the holes more expensive.”

Lowell again slagged geophysics. “One of my strategies is not to worry too much about earlier analysis, especially geophysical surveys that have poor track records."
