Nickel Creek Platinum (TSX:NCP) has released an update on the status of its Nickel Shäw project in the Yukon, Canada.

According to the release, following the conclusion of its phase II metallurgical program, the company embarked on further work toward completing a preliminary economic assessment.

As quoted in the press release:

During the course of the phase II metallurgical program, the company reported that it had identified a strong correlation between nickel recovery and total sulfide content. Specifically, it was determined that the presence of sulfides (namely sulphur in pyrrhotite) was an important marker of nickel recovery, meaning that the areas of higher sulphur yielded higher recoveries, and areas of lower sulphur yielded lower recoveries, irrespective of nickel head grade which remains relatively consistent throughout the deposit. The company has incorporated these findings into a nickel-sulphur recovery formula and tested it against numerous recent and historical metallurgical testwork results. This review has demonstrated a high correlation between the nickel-sulphur recovery model and actual nickel recovery results.
