Tintina commences geotechnical testwork at the Black Butte Copper Project, Montana, USA

VANCOUVER, March 17, 2015 /CNW/ - Tintina Resources Inc. ("Tintina" or the "Company") (TSX-V: TAU) (OTCQX: TINTF) is pleased to announce commencement of a geotechnical drilling program at the Company's flagship Black Butte Copper Project, located in central Montana, USA.

The drilling of twenty shallow drill holes will provide a comprehensive data set for understanding the nature of the regolith (loose material above bedrock) and bedrock for construction footings and cut and fill calculations, as well as a more detailed understanding of the bedrock geology of the construction sites.

Jerry Zieg, Vice President Exploration, commented "The data collected from this drilling is critical for proper siting and construction of our mine facilities. Our goal is to ensure the highest safety standard possible; this information is important for properly designing facilities that will withstand geological hazards.  The data set will also help in identification of any site material suitable for construction purposes."  

Bruce Hooper, President & CEO, said "The drilling is part of developing a high quality project based on robust scientific data and 'doing it right from the start'."
