Tartisan Nickel Corp. (CSE:TN, FSE:A2DPCM) (“Tartisan”, or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company has expanded its land package around its existing patented claims centered on its Kenbridge Nickel-Copper-Cobalt deposit. The land package of patented and unpatented claims now encompasses 1,762 hectares.
As part of the ongoing review of the data associated with the acquisition of the Kenbridge orebody in February 2018 an additional twenty seven (27) claims were staked including six (6) claims over patented areas where the new mapstaking system MLAS indicated land availability for staking. A number of the new claims cover potential extensions to the strong magnetic feature with a 2-km strike length with a prominent deep-seated 200m long conductive anomaly located along the flank of the magnetic anomaly. The prospective target is located some 2.5km to the northeast of the Kenbridge deposit, situated along the same structural trend of the Kenbridge intrusion.
Tartisan Nickel CEO Mr. Mark Appleby noted, “ We are pleased to have increased our land position and are encouraged by the improving technical fundamentals of the nickel market. We continue to seek out opportunities to enhance shareholder value”.
The Kenbridge Deposit hosts measured and indicated resources of 7.139 million tonnes of 0.62% nickel; 0.33% copper; and 0.016% cobalt; with inferred resources of 0.118 million tonnes of 1.38% nickel; 0.88% copper; and 0.003% cobalt. In total a contained nickel resource of 97.8 million pounds of nickel and 47 million pounds of copper has been defined by previous operators to date. The Kenbridge deposit is equipped with a 623m shaft and two levels and has never been mined. Mineralization is open at depth and along strike.
