- New AEM VTEM Plus survey with state of the art equipment and processing to be flown over Alexo-Dundonald.
- More detailed AEM /Mag surveys planned over 20km2 to confirm possible extents to existing mineralized zones and explore for new targets.
- Processing products will include B field profiles, B field tau and 3D RDI Models to assist in location of deeper high conductance targets.
Class 1 Nickel & Technologies Limited (“Class 1 Nickel” or the “Company”) (CSE:NICO), a Canadian company developing nickel-copper-cobalt sulphide Mineral Resources 45km northeast of Timmins, Ontario, is pleased to announce the appointment of highly regarded Geophysicist Mr. Alan King to the technical management team.
Class 1 Nickel is proud to appoint Mr. Alan King to lead our geophysical interpretation and advisory; he is well known and respected in the Mineral Resource industry with particular expertise in Nickel exploration and is looking forward to working with the other members of our expert technical management team on a joint geological/geophysical exploration program.
Mr. Alan King stated, “I am particularly interested in assisting exploration teams to discover new deposits of potential economic viability. There has been a general lack of exploration in the nickel industry over the past 15 years and existing sulphide mines are depleting their known Mineral Resources. I am excited to be part of the Alexo-Dundonald technical team and am eager to get to work on this project. I have done preliminary reviews on the most recent Technical Reports on the properties and they indicate there is potential to expand existing Mineral Resources and discover new zones as the known mineralized zones are open at depth and along strike. We will also apply modern 3D data integration tools and the best available BHEM technology to take full advantage of all new and historical data.”
Alan received a B.Sc. in geology from the University of Toronto in 1976 and an M.Sc. in geophysics from Macquarie University in 1989. From 1976 to 1990 he worked as a geophysicist in exploration and resource development in Canada and Australasia. From 1990 to 2012 he was employed by Inco /Vale as a senior geophysicist and then as Manager of Geophysics with responsibility for global exploration. As Chief Geophysicist for Vale Global Exploration Alan worked on geophysical applications for base metals, iron, manganese, coal and fertilizers (potash and phosphate) as well as target generation using regional and global data sets.
Class 1 Nickel looks forward to updating shareholders regarding planned geophysical campaigns in coming weeks.
