North American Nickel Inc. (TSXV:NAN,OTCBB:WSCRF) announced its surveys detected 25 conductive target zones on the Maniitsoq project.

As quoted in the press release:

Seven are ranked high priority and include an 850 metre-long untested conductor situated near exposures of norite, a type of rock associated with high grade nickel-copper mineralization in the Maniitsoq region. Another eleven targets are ranked as moderate priority. Details on the surveys are given in the sections below. The surveyed area amounts to 8% of the total area of the 100% owned Maniitsoq exploration licence.

NAN’s Cheif Geologist, John Pattison said:

Previous prospecting at Maniitsoq was successful in discovering high grade nickel sulphide mineralization on surface, but subsurface exploration was stymied by a lack of EM targets. Our 2011 SkyTEM results are a major step forward because they demonstrate that modern, helicopter TEM surveys are capable of locating significant EM anomalies that were not detected by previous geophysical surveys.
