North American Nickel (TSXV:NAN)(OTCBB:WSCRF)(CUSIP: 65704T 108) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has received a report on the results of mineralogical studies performed by SGS Canada Inc. (“SGS”) on four drill core samples of nickel-copper sulphides from the 2016 exploration program at the Maniitsoq Ni-Cu-Co-PGE sulphide project in southwest Greenland. The representative samples were obtained from the Mikissoq and P-058 mineralized norite intrusions at the Imiak Hill Complex and Fossilik area, respectively.
As quoted in the press release:
North American Nickel CEO, Keith Morrison, states: “The results from the 2016 samples, which include the new sulphide lens at Mikissoq, continue to demonstrate the consistent nature of sulphide mineralogy, nickel deportment and potential pentlandite recovery of the Maniitsoq sulphide zones. Next steps in the evaluation of selected sulphide zones are expected to include initial bench scale flotation tests which will provide a first look at actual versus estimated nickel recoveries.”
