Canada Nickel Company Announces Assay Results and Confirms Discovery at Deloro Property

(PresseBox) (Toronto, )
 
  • Second significant discovery from newly acquired regional properties – Reid and Deloro.
  • Assay results at Deloro confirmed expected grades over entire core length of 487 metres of 0.25% nickel including 91 metres of 0.28% nickel.
  • Mineralization successfully defined over 1.1 kilometres of strike length by 100 – 400 metres wide to a depth of 420 metres.
Canada Nickel Company Inc. ("Canada Nickel" or the "Company") (TSXV: CNC) (OTCQX: CNIKF - https://www.commodity-tv.com/ondemand/companies/profil/canada-nickel-company-inc/) today announced assay results at its Deloro property, which confirm the second significant discovery from the Company’s newly acquired properties.

Mark Selby, Chair and Chief Executive Officer said, “We are very pleased with the results from Deloro where we successfully delineated our target mineralization and grades throughout the intended geophysical target.  Deloro now joins Reid as another significant, sizeable nickel discovery and we look forward to continued success as we continue exploration around our regional properties, developing what we believe has the potential to be one of the world’s leading nickel districts.  We will provide further updates on drilling and our regional plans in September.”

Drilling was highlighted by hole DEL22-01 which intersected 487 metres of 0.25% nickel with a higher-grade section near the bottom of the hole intersecting 0.28% nickel over 91 metres and hole DEL 22-09 which intersected 393 metres of 0.26% nickel. Complete assays from 5 of the 11 holes are available for release (see Table 1).

Deloro Nickel Property

The Deloro property is located 9 kilometres southeast of Timmins and contains an ultramafic target that measures 1.4 kilometres north-south by 450 metres east-west based on the total magnetic intensity (TMI) (see Figure 1). Ultramafic lithologies and nickel mineralization has been found throughout the target anomaly.

Hole DEL22-01 collared in dunite on the northern half of the target and was drilled to the southwest. The hole remained largely in dunite for a total length of 487 metres grading 0.25% nickel, with a higher-grade section near the bottom of the hole intersecting 0.28% nickel over 91 metres.

DEL22-09 collared in dunite and the hole intersected 393 metres of 0.26% nickel, including 51 metres of 0.28% nickel. The hole finished in peridotite.

DEL22-06 collared in peridotite and transitioned in composition from dunite to peridotite and intersected a total of 227 metres of mineralization – 74 metres grading 0.20% nickel starting at 54 metres and 141 metres grading 0.21% nickel starting at 140 metres including a 12-metre core length of 0.33% nickel and 0.15 g/t Pt+Pd from 248 to 260 metres. This higher-grade Pt+Pd in dunite has similar characteristics to the high-grade core in Crawford’s East Zone.

DEL22-07 collared in dunite, on section with DEL22-01, 100 metres to the west. DEL22-10 collared in dunite and remained in dunite for the majority of the hole except for minor pyroxenite and mafic dykes. The hole intersected 79 metres of 0.25% nickel 124 metres downhole, and 87 metres of 0.25% nickel at 235 metres, before intersecting intermediate volcanics at the contact.

Assays, Quality Assurance/Quality Control and Drilling and Assay Edwin Escarraga, MSc, P.Geo., a "qualified person" as defined by National Instrument 43-101, is responsible for the on-going drilling and sampling program, including quality assurance (QA) and quality control (QC). The core is collected from the drill in sealed core trays and transported to the core logging facility. The core is marked and sampled at 1.5 metre lengths and cut with a diamond blade saw. One set of samples is transported in secure bags directly from the Canada Nickel core shack to Actlabs Timmins, while a second set of samples is securely shipped to SGS Lakefield for preparation, with analysis performed at SGS Burnaby or SGS Callao (Peru). All are ISO/IEC 17025 accredited labs. Analysis for precious metals (gold, platinum and palladium) are completed by Fire Assay while analysis for nickel, cobalt, sulphur and 17 other elements are performed using a peroxide fusion and ICP-OES analysis. Certified standards and blanks are inserted at a rate of 3 QA/QC samples per 20 core samples making a batch of 60 samples that are submitted for analysis.

Qualified Person and Data Verification
