High-Grade Nickel Sulphide Intersected Outside Mineral Resource

Up to 2.4% nickel intersected in addition to multiple disseminated nickel sulphide intersections of up to 195m

Nickel sulphide explorer Nordic Nickel Limited (ASX: NNL; Nordic, or the Company) is pleased to report further significant assay results received from drilling completed at its 100%-owned flagship Pulju project, situated in Northern Finland (Pulju, or the Project) within the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt (CLGB). The Company completed 28 diamond drill holes for 15,432m as part of its maiden drilling program at the Project.


HIGHLIGHTS

  • Assays from nine (9) diamond drill holes continue to return extensive zones of nickel sulphide mineralisation, including zones of higher-grade massive stringer sulphides.
  • Assay highlights include:
    • HOT026
      • 41.1m @ 0.25% Ni from 296.9m (incl. 0.45m @ 2.4% Ni, 0.11% Co); and
      • 100m @ 0.21% Ni from 353m (incl. 0.55m @ 1.17% Ni, 0.05% Co)
    • HOT021
      • 195m @ 0.21% Ni from 10m; and
      • 107.9m @ 0.17% Ni from 330m
    • HOT018
      • 184m @ 0.21% Ni from 34m
    • HOT023
      • 141.75m @ 0.22% Ni from 35.85m (incl. 2m @ 0.80% Ni, 0.04% Co)
    • HOT020
      • 122m @ 0.21% Ni from 92m; and
      • 132.3m @ 0.22% Ni from 347m
    • HOT014
      • 102.37m @ 0.20% Ni from 137.63m

(See Table 1 and Appendix 1 for details)

  • Results reinforce the potential for high-grade, semi-massive and massive nickel sulphides within the extensive areas of disseminated nickel sulphide mineralisation at Hotinvaara.
  • Partial leach assaying confirms the predominance of nickel sulphide in the assays received to date.
  • Hotinvaara Prospect represents just 2% of the total prospective mineralised belt within the broader Pulju Project.
  • Assay results pending for an additional five drill holes from the Phase 1 drilling program at Hotinvaara.
  • Updated MRE scheduled for completion by the end of 2023.
New assays have been received for a further nine drill holes, which were designed to expand the limits of the current resource and target a series of modelled geophysical anomalies (electromagnetic (EM) and magnetic).

Principally, these results have confirmed and expanded the footprint of the extensive zones of disseminated nickel sulphide mineralisation at the Hotinvaara Prospect. Additionally, step-out drilling to the south (HOT026) has demonstrated a large extension of the mineralised system and that the targeting of geophysical anomalies is an effective (Figure 1, Table 1 & Appendix 1).

Composite assay intersections highlighted (cut-off:>1,500ppm Ni-total; max. 6m internal dilution). Cross-sections A – A’, B – B’, C – C’, D – D’, E – E’ and F – F’ see Figs. 2 – 7.

Management Comment

Nordic Nickel Managing Director, Todd Ross, said: “We are very encouraged to see zones of high- grade nickel sulphide in these latest assays associated with the extensive zones of disseminated mineralisation which we have been consistently intersecting.

“The Phase 1 drilling program has been extremely successful in confirming and expanding the known mineralised footprint at Hotinvaara, laying the foundations for a resource upgrade due by the end of this year. In particular, the strong correlation of magnetic anomalism with nickel sulphide mineralisation is extremely encouraging as we look to both expand the existing resource and discover larger accumulations of massive sulphides.

“As our understanding of the mineralised system advances, we will be in a strong position to build on the results of the Phase 1 drilling and target new discoveries, both within, and external to, the Hotinvaara licence area. In the meantime, shareholders can look forward to consistent further news-flow as we await final assays from the drilling, an updated MRE and metallurgical testwork results.”

3 Top Weekly TSXV Stocks: Power Nickel Leads with 70 Percent Gain

The S&P/TSX Venture Composite Index (INDEXTSI:JX) gained 14.25 points last week to close at 595.95.

One of the biggest news items this past week was Panama's presidential election, held on Sunday (May 5). Jose Raul Mulino secured 34 percent of the vote against five other candidates to become the country’s president.

Mulino was a last-minute replacement after former President Ricardo Martinelli was barred from running due to a money laundering conviction. Mulino was minister of public security during Martinelli's presidency, which ended in 2014.

Ramp Metals (TSXV:RAMP)

Ramp Metals Announces Proposed Debt Settlements

Ramp Metals Inc. (TSXV:RAMP) ("Ramp Metals" or the "Company") announces that the Company intends to settle outstanding accounts payable in the aggregate amount of $131,476.90 (collectively, the "Debt") owing to certain creditors through the issuance of 730,424 common shares in the capital of Ramp (collectively, the "Settlement Shares") at a deemed price of $0.18 per Settlement Share (the "Transaction").

No new Control Person (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV")) will be created pursuant to the Transaction; however, two non-arm's length parties are expected to receive a total of 62,500 Settlement Shares upon the settlement of $11,250 worth of the Debt. The issuance of those Settlement Shares constitutes a "related party transaction" as that term is defined in Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The Company is relying on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority approval requirements under MI 61-101, and in particular, Sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, as neither the fair market value of the subject matter of, nor the fair market value of the consideration for, the transaction, insofar as it involves those parties, exceeds 25% of the Company's market capitalization.
