More high-grade drill intercepts for Canada Nickel at Crawford

Sep 10, 2020

Drilling continues to look better and better as Canada Nickel releases yet another set of drill results that further outline a promising nickel-cobalt property nin Crawford Township just north of Timmins.

Canada Nickel has announced additional encouraging results from infill drilling on the Main Zone at its Crawford Nickel-Cobalt Sulphide project in north Timmins.

“Excellent results continue from our infill drilling program.  These most recent drilling results continue to expand the widths and vertical extent of the higher-grade mineralization in the western end of the Main Zone and further confirm and extend the higher grade mineralization in the eastern end of the Main Zone. These higher-grade resource areas will be the initial focus of the mine plan in the Preliminary Economic Assessment currently underway and expected to be completed by year-end,” said Mark Selby, Chair and CEO of Canada Nickel.

“With the drilling necessary for the updated resource to be released later this month now complete, we will turn our attention to the other exciting exploration opportunities identified at Crawford.  Three follow-up holes on the previously reported encouraging PGM results from hole CR20-32 (which yielded three separate intersections including 2.6 g/t PGM over 7.5 metres) have been completed and intersected the anticipated structures. Drilling began this week of the several other prospective geophysical nickel targets on the several kilometres of the Crawford structure which remain untested.  Exploration results from these holes are expected before the end of September.”

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.

Main Zone Infill Results

Infill drilling on the Main Zone continued to focus on more clearly defining and upgrading the Higher-Grade Core resource, which was previously defined as part of the resource estimate and dips steeply within the ultramafic unit and having a previously reported true thickness that varies from 40 m to 160 m.
