Tintina Resources Incorporated (TSX-V: TAU) (OTCQX: TINTF), a growth company focused on the exploration, development and mining of its Black Butte Copper Project in Montana, United States, has started a geotechnical drilling programme at its flagship Black Butte Copper Project, located in central Montana, USA.

The drilling of twenty shallow drill holes will offer 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, and a more detailed understanding of the bedrock geology of the construction sites.

Jerry Zieg, vice president Exploration, said '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.'
