Rockland Minerals Intercepts Strong Platinum-Palladium Values At Blue Lake in Quebec

Rockland Minerals Corp. (TSXV:RL) announced assay results from the first two drill holes at the Blue Lake Cu-Ni-PGM in Quebec: both holes are at the base of meters-thick massive sulfide bodies, occurring at the bottom of the “middle sill” (peridotite) hosting the Blue Lake deposits, and are intervals with multi gram-per-tonne precious metals values.

As quoted in the press release:

These platinum and palladium grades are demonstrably higher than surrounding holes drilled in the 1960s and 1980s. Technical reports from that period mention recovery problems in the loose, crumbly zones containing strong Pt-Pd values, which were often washed-away during earlier drilling campaigns. These thin, Pt-Pd zones were observed in the Blue #1 bulk sample adit. Grades of Pt, Pd, Cu and Ni were higher in the underground samples, than were predicted by surrounding diamond drill holes.

George F. Sanders, Rockland Director and Qualified Person for the technical content of this news release under National Instrument 43-101, states, “We expect similar results in the balance of the drilling, due to very good core recovery. This modern drilling, with better technology, and more careful core recovery, is helping recover the precious metals at Blue Lake, and we are expanding the potential of this mineralization.”
