North American Nickel (TSXV:NAN) announced that it has started a 2018 exploration program at its Greenland-based Maniitsoq nickel-copper-cobalt-PGMs project.

As quoted in the press release:

The 2018 exploration program will comprise up to 12,500 metres of drilling including borehole electromagnetic (BHEM) surveys and will test melanorite portions of prioritized intrusions at Fossilik, P-030-P-032, P-053, and in the footprint of the Imiak Hill Complex where more continuous zones of high Ni tenor sulphide mineralization can be identified. A location map (Figure 1) may be viewed using the link provided at the end of the release.

The 2018 program is designed to identify disseminated and breccia styles of mineralization that are almost exclusively associated with the most-mafic-ultramafic portions of the noritic intrusions. Detailed surface geochemical data has been used to support a re-interpretation of Worldview 3 satellite data to help identify the surface signature of the melanorites. Petrological and geochemical data from drill core and known mineral zones have been used to constrain the 3D geometry of the melanorite, and search for intact keel and root zones to the intrusions where high tenor Ni-Cu-Co-PGM sulphide mineralization may be localized.

The 2018 surface work has commenced with a number of deep-penetrating EM surveys over some of the most prospective large bodies of melanorite. Drilling has commenced on targets associated with the Imiak Hill Complex to the south of Spotty Hill, and along the keel structure of the Fossilik Intrusion to the north of the P-058 mineral zone.

Simultaneously the Company will be continuing the systematic exploration of the district scale Maniitsoq property and advancing corporate social responsibility and infrastructure-related activities.
