Canada Nickel has Extension of Main Zone by 1.5 kilometres and East Zone by 400 metres at Crawford

May 28, 2020

Canada Nickel Company Inc. has released dramatic results from the latest drill holes at its Crawford Nickel-Cobalt Sulphide project. Those results include a third hole, CR20-33, into the newly discovered East Zone, which extends nickel mineralization a farther 400 metres east, and the nickel assays from the previously reported hole CR20-32, which extend Main Zone nickel mineralization by 1.5 kilometres to the north. 

The new East Zone discovery has been tested for 2.1 km of its overall 2.8 km interpreted strike length and the original Main Zone remains open for several kilometres to the west.

"We are very pleased with the latest significant nickel mineralization step-outs – extending our Main Zone by 1.5 kilometres and our East Zone discovery by 400 metres. Importantly, this is the second of three holes on the East Zone with a higher grade interval (0.37% nickel over 38 metres) that also contained elevated palladium and platinum grades," said Mark Selby, Chair and CEO of Canada Nickel.  

"Our latest drilling results further reinforce our belief that Crawford is one of the leading next generation nickel-cobalt sulphide and palladium projects. " 

The Crawford Nickel-Cobalt Sulphide Project is located in the heart of the prolific Timmins-Cochrane mining camp in Ontario, Canada, and is adjacent to well-established, major infrastructure associated with over 100 years of regional mining activity.
