Quebec Nickel Corp. - Exploration Update

Oct 15, 2021

Quebec Nickel Corp. has announced an update of its ongoing exploration program over it's 100%-owned Ducros Ni-Cu-PGE Property Group. The property is located in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt in northwestern Quebec and is accessible by paved highways from the city of Val-d'Or, which is approximately 85 kilometres to the southeast. 

This first phase exploration program is budgeted at $375,000. The program is to include property scale till sampling, stripping, mapping and sampling (Fortin Ni-Cu-PGE and Au Showings), Geotech 1,717-line kilometre VTEMTM Airborne Geophysical System survey, and a Property Compilation / 3D Geological Modeling.

New Claim Staking: 

A total of forty-one (41) claims, totaling 2,328.45 hectares were staked based on the results from the spring 2021 till sampling program (for details, the reader is referred to the company's September 23, 2021, press release) and the on-going property data compilation. The property is now comprised of 280 contiguous mining claims covering 15,179.72 hectares. (Figure 1 and 2)

Stripping Program: Fortin Ni-Cu-PGE and Au Showings:

The stripping and washing program have been completed over the Ni-Cu-PGE and Au Showings. Mapping and selective sampling will commence when the local hunting season comes to a close on October 17th.

The objective of the work is to improve our understanding and characterization of the geological, mineralogical, and structural controls on the mineralization. For details, the reader is referred to the company's September 23, 2021, press release.

Till Sampling Program

A follow-up, helicopter-supported Phase II till sampling program is planned to commence in November, weather depending, to focus on other prospective target areas on the property. In conjunction with this work, a prospecting and sampling program will be completed over the Ni, Cu, Co anomaly areas defined from the Phase I program.
