Vulcan Minerals Inc. – Completes Drilling Program at the Colchester Copper-Gold Project in Newfoundland

St. John’s Newfoundland and Labrador - Vulcan Minerals Inc. (“the Company” - “Vulcan” TSX-V: VUL) announces that it has completed its preliminary round of drilling on the Old English zone of the Colchester property in north-central Newfoundland. Four holes totalling 824 metres were drilled to explore the possible extensions of historic drill intersections of copper and gold mineralization. As well the holes will assist in calibrating the results from a recent high resolution Induced Polarization geophysical survey carried out on the property. Several zones of mineralization were encountered and are being assayed with results expected in January, 2017. Based on the variety of mineralization identified from historic information and observed in the field, the Company believes the property will require systematic evaluation utilizing state of the art geophysical technology and several rounds of drilling to evaluate all the known areas of mineralization and new geophysical targets.
