North American Nickel (TSX VENTURE:NAN) (OTCBB:WSCRF) (CUSIP:65704T 108) (the “Company”) is pleased to report that first assays have been received from the 2017 drilling program at the Company’s 100% owned Maniitsoq nickel-copper-cobalt-PGM project in Southwest Greenland.
Drill hole MQ-17-135 was completed to test the down-dip extent of the new nickel-copper sulphide zone intersected at Mikissoq in the Imiak Hill Complex area in 2016. This new hole has returned significant results including:
- 75.75 metres @ 1.10% Ni and 0.43% Cu including:
- 10.25 metres @ 2.29% Ni and 1.33% Cu and
- 19.25 metres @ 1.89% Ni and 0.26% Cu
NAN CEO, Keith Morrison, commented:
“The primary objectives of the Company’s 2017 drilling are to demonstrate continuity and size potential of mineralized zones and to prioritize drill targets for 2018. The results from MQ-17-135 exceed the best results obtained at Mikissoq in 2016 and have extended the mineralization by 60 metres in a down-dip direction.
This new intersection is also instrumental in advancing our understanding of targeting the Maniitsoq style mineralization at depth.”
