Quebec Nickel Corp. Update - Ducros Nickel-Copper-PGE Project, Abitibi Quebec

Jan 13, 2022

Quebec Nickel Corp. is reporting on its exploration activities on its 100%-owned Ducros Group Nickel-Copper-PGE Project, located in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt, northwestern Quebec. 

20,000 Metre 2022 Drill Program:

The first phase of the 2022 drill program will commence field operations on January 18th, on the Fortin Ni-Cu-PGE Showing (East Sector of Property). Drill targets (see Company News Release of November 25, 2021 https://www.quebecnickel.com/quebec-nickel-corp-announces-upcoming-drill-program-at-the-ducros-group-project-quebec/ ) to be tested are based on results from the 2020 ground electromagnetic (ARMIT-TDEM) survey, the 2021 stripping and mapping program, and on-going property-scale compilation and 3D geological modelling. Further details of the first phase program will follow in separate press release in advance of the drill start-up.

1,717-line kilometre VTEMTM (Geotech) Airborne Geophysical System Survey

The crew is scheduled to mobilize to the property in the third week of January, contingent on weather conditions and/or any technical issues. Based on the results of the survey data interpretation, selective follow-up ground truthing geophysical surveying and prospecting/sampling will be conducted over high-priority electromagnetic conductors. The primary objective of this work is to identify new Ni-Cu-PGE drill targets associated with untested mafic-ultramafic intrusions over the large Ducros Group property holdings, within areas of limited exploration work and/or thick overburden cover.
