North American Nickel Announces Results from Post Creek Drill Program

- February 13th, 2019

The company said both drill holes encountered a thick sequence of mafic volcanic rocks, but no intervals of quartz diorite or partially melted country rocks were encountered.

North American Nickel (TSXV:NAN) has reported that assays have been received from two drill holes completed at its Post Creek nickel-copper-PGE sulphide project in Sudbury Ontario.

The company said both drill holes encountered a thick sequence of mafic volcanic rocks, but no intervals of quartz diorite or partially melted country rocks were encountered. Footwall style mineralization which typically carries elevated abundances of copper, nickel, and precious metals was also absent.
As quoted in the press release:
However hole PC-18-21 did intersect an unusually thick interval of sphalerite mineralization which is a new discovery of volcanogenic massive sulphide-type mineralization. The mineralized intervals include: 7.50m at 3.55 percent zinc and 0.82ppm silver including 3.70m at 4.66 percent zinc and 0.58ppm silver and 0.8m at 10.96 percent zinc and 3.05ppm silver.
