HTM Acquires Historical Nickel Sulphide Project - Canada

High-Tech Metals Limited (ASX: HTM) (High-Tech, HTM or the Company) is pleased to announce it has entered into an agreement to acquire the Norpax Deposit (Norpax) and acquired an option to purchase the Reynar Lake Project (Reynar Lake) (Together, the Projects) which are both located in Ontario, Canada. The Projects are directly west and adjoin the Company’s existing project, Werner Lake Project (Werner Lake, or the Project), located in northwestern Ontario.


HIGHLIGHTS

The Company has significantly increased its exposure to nickel sulphides and copper through the following acquisition and option agreement:

Norpax Nickel Sulphide Deposit:

  • A historical non-JORC compliant resource of 1,010,000 tonnes 1.2% Ni and 0.5% Cu1.*
    *The historical estimates are not reported in accordance with the JORC codes. A competent person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimates as a mineral resource in accordance with JORC Code. It is uncertain that following further exploration work that the historical estimates will be able to be reported as mineral resources within the JORC Code.
  • The deposit lies ~1 km west of HTM’s existing project, Werner Lake, and along the Werner Lake Belt.
  • The Norpax nickel mineralisation sits on a known mineralised fault zone, the regional scale Werner-Gordon-Rex lake fault which extends from Rayner Lake in the west, passing under Almo Lake, east through the Werner Lake Co and Gordon Lake Cu-Ni deposits to Rex Lake.
  • Mineralised peridotite is known to host many significant nickel deposits such as companies Mincor Resources Ltd in Kambalda and also Azure Minerals Ltd (ASX:AZS) Andover project’s ultramafic zone, which is in part peridotite.**
  • The area has a rich history in nickel sulphide mines with the old Gordon Lake Mine located 3.5 km to the East of Werner Lake, which produced 1,370,285 tons averaging 0.92% Ni and 0.47% Cu and has existing reserves of 170,420 tonnes averaging 0.85% Ni and 0.35% Cu2.

Reynar Lake Ni-Cu-Co Project:

  • Reynar Lake project immediately adjoins HTM’s Werner Lake Project.
  • The ground is highly prospective for Ni, Cu and Co and should the option be exercised, it will provide HTM with additional landholding to potentially increase its cobalt resource and explore for additional nickel sulphide mineralisation.

The Company plans to build on the recent exploration success at Werner Lake by immediately begin planning exploration on the newly acquired Projects.

The acquisition of the Projects increases HTM’s landholding in the Werner Lake Area and the Company’s exposure to battery metals such as copper, cobalt, and nickel.

Sonu Cheema, Executive Director commented:

"We are excited by the acquisition of Norpax and the option over Reynar Lake with the potential for a nickel discovery in a historic nickel producing province of Canada. Not only do the acquisitions increase our exposure to nickel, but it also increases the Company’s land holding substantially making High-Tech one of the largest land holders in the area.

“As the Projects lay in the area of Werner Lake, the Company’s geological team are familiar with the geological setting. This has been recently proven by the Company’s discovery of high-grade samples of nickel sulphide (that exceeded assay detection limits) in the Werner Lake Project.

“The Company plans to utilise its expertise in the area by undertaking a review of all available geological data, performing a systematic geochemical sampling program of known mineral occurrences on the projects in conjunction with reconnaissance geological mapping and relog and assay all known and available core.”

5 Largest Cobalt Mines in the World (Updated 2024)

Interest in cobalt has increased in recent years due to its use in the lithium-ion batteries used to power electric cars.

Global cobalt mine production reached a record high of 230,000 metric tons (MT) in 2023, according to the US Geological Survey (USGS), with the help of increased output from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Indonesia.

The DRC is the world’s largest producer of cobalt by far, with its output reaching 170,000 MT last year — almost 74 percent of global supply. For comparison, the second largest cobalt producer Indonesia put out 17,000 MT of the battery metal.
