Horden Lake Drilling Completed

Pivotal Metals Limited (ASX:PVT) (‘Pivotal’ or the ‘Company’) is pleased to provide an update on its exploration program at its 100% owned Horden Lake project in Quebec, Canada.


Highlights

  • 33 holes for 7,014 metres of diamond drilling completed at Horden Lake.
    • Program targeted grade and tonnage opportunities within the 412 kt CuEq (27.8mt at 1.5% CuEq) Indicated and Inferred Resource1.
  • Logging and assay in progress. First assay results are expected shortly, and will be released progressively during Q2 2024.
  • Extensive 21 hole downhole EM geophysical survey in final stages of completion.
    • Objective to show resource growth potential around the defined Resource, which was open along NE-SW strike and down-plunge directions.
Managing Director, Mr Fairhall said:

“We are proud to be wrapping up our successful drilling and downhole geophysics program on schedule at Horden Lake – the first since Pivotal’s acquisition of the property. Our strategy to target grade and tonnage increases on the project is firmly intact, and we look forward to sharing the results shortly.

This work program sets us up for a busy 2024 as we work towards a resource update, metallurgical testwork, and follow up drilling to continue to grow the already significant mineral endowment. I would like to thank our in-country team and contracting partners for a safe and well executed program”

Horden Lake Drill Program

The Company has completed 33 diamond drill holes at Horden Lake, for a combined program of 7,014 metres (Figure 1).

The program was designed to target improvements to both the quality and scale of the Horden Lake project and provide the foundation for advancing the asset from both a geological, and an engineering, perspective.

  • Exploit the potential for increase in grade by collecting Au, Ag, Pt and Co by-product assay data for parts of the deposit that were not assayed for these metals in the past.
  • Exploit the potential for increase in tonnage by drilling areas of limited density in or around the 27.8 mt Resource envelope. Downhole geophysics has been used to refine targets for further step-out drilling (see below).
  • Collect significant sample for metallurgical testwork for flowsheet optimisation to support more detailed engineering studies.

Drill core is being progressively logged by the geological team in Val d’Or and sent for multielement assay with ALS Global. The first assays were sent on 19 February, and results are expected shortly.

Top 3 ASX Nickel Stocks of 2024

With its diverse applications in both technology and industry, nickel is a metal that will never go out of style.

Nickel is commonly used in alloys to create stainless steel, but more recently has found a modern use: batteries. As the electric vehicle trend gains steam, the base metal is in high demand for its role in lithium-ion batteries.

Nickel has encountered much volatility in the past few years. Prices spiked abruptly to a record US$100,000 per tonne in March 2022, prompting the suspension of trading on the London Metal Exchange.

Nickel Price Update: Q1 2024 in Review

At the start of the year, experts predicted nickel supply to maintain a surplus and the price would stay rangebound through 2024. It opened the first quarter priced at US$16,600 per metric ton (MT) on January 2.

The price was stable during January and February, but March brought with it some volatility with strong gains pushing it to a quarterly high of US$18,165 per MT on March 13.

However, the rising price failed to hold and nickel once again dropped below the US$17,000 mark by the end of the month. Ultimately, the metal fell to US$16,565 on March 28, resulting in a slight loss for the quarter.

Ramp Metals CEO Shares 2024 Drill Plans for Rottenstone Project in Saskatchewan

Ramp Metals (TSXV:RAMP) CEO Jordan Black discussed the company's veteran team of geologists and advisors, and its plans for drilling at its Rottenstone SW nickel-copper-platinum project in Northern Saskatchewan, Canada, to better understand the property’s subsurface geology.

The project's Rottenstone Eye structure is believed to be a major feeder chamber with conductive targets showing striking similarities to the geophysical response of the Nova-Bollinger deposit in Western Australia, which was discovered by geologist Dr. Mark Bennett and his team and later sold for AU$1.8 billion.

After Ramp discovered the similarities between the Rottenstone Eye and the Nova Eye structure at Nova-Bollinger, the company contacted Bennett to get his thoughts about its project. Bennett joined the team as a strategic advisor.
