Columbus Copper's Kavaklitepe Project is situated 120 kilometres south-southeast of Istanbul in western Turkey, immediately north of a fertile zone demonstrating copper, molybdenum and gold porphyry systems. Palaeozoic to Triassic sediments and schist and Mesozoic marble are the main geological units within the project area. A set of dominantly dextral strike-slip and cross sinistral faults have been interpreted to form extensional strain anomalies and pre-mineral shear zones and folds in the area. The dextral faults are also parallel to the Eskishehir Fault that is regionally important and is considered to penetrate deeply into the Earth's crust and probably controls the emplacement of the Gurculer and Muratdere porphyry systems.

Columbus Copper plans to further expand the soil sampling grids in the directions of the open anomalies, open up trenches in the forest where the soil anomalies are defined and conduct orientation IP geophysics. A shallow drill hole campaign is also intended once the follow-up has been completed.
Quality Assurance/Quality Control
All sampling was carried out according to procedures described in the Bursa CPR and comprise 'B' horizon soils sent under chain of custody to ALS Chemex in Vancouver after preparation in ALS' preparation facilities in Izmir, Turkey. In addition to the 345 samples, 15 standard reference materials and 14 duplicates were included in the sample batch. All standard reference material samples reported within their respective certified ranges.
In addition, ALS Chemex performed internal check assaying on about 5% of the samples, and also included analyses of internal standards inserted into the sample string.
