Rockland Minerals Corp. (TSXV:RL) reports it completed its 1,500 meter diamond drilling program on the Retty Lake Cu-Ni-Pt-Pd property in Quebec.
The press release is quoted as saying,
Initial logging of the core has revealed widespread disseminated sulfide mineralization with visible chalcopyrite (copper mineral) within the lower portion of the middle peridotite sill. In several instances, favourable “net-texture” sulfides were observed to be crystallized within cumulate-texture peridotite. Two drill holes found an unexpected rock type in place of the middle peridotite horizon. Instead of the ultramafic peridotite, there was a melanocratic gabbro, which indicates assimilation of the wall rock by the peridotite intrusion.
A Rockland Director, George F. Sanders says,
We see highly encouraging disseminated sulfide textures in hand samples of the drill core from the Retty Lake Project, and we’re only in the beginning stages of unlocking the copper-nickel-platinum-palladium potential of this district.
