North American Nickel completed 14,287.6 metres of drilling this season, which includes 1,305m at the Qeqertaasaq carbonatite complex.
North American Nickel (TSXV:NAN) has completed its 2018 exploration and drilling program at the company’s Maniitsoq nickel-copper-cobalt-PGM project in Southwest Greenland.
According to the Wednesday (September 19) release, NAN completed 14,287.6 metres of drilling this season, which includes 1,305m at the Qeqertaasaq carbonatite complex. This represents an increase of 5,520.6m from our previous program in 2017. This year’s program was achieved over a 15 week period and surpassed the initial planned program of 12,500m.
NAN CEO, Keith Morrison said:
“The Greenland Norite Belt, when compared on a global basis to other nickel sulfide exploration projects, is unusually well endowed with numerous zones of high-quality nickel-copper-cobalt-precious metal mineralization. The bulk of the known occurrences within the belt, have elevated nickel grades with high nickel tenors. Outside of the Maniitsoq project, there are very few opportunities for exploration assets, located in a supportive jurisdiction, that offers the combination of exploration potential and metal value that if successful, will supply the long term market demand for strategic base metals.”
