Inomin Intersects Large Intervals of Prospective Mineralization in Drill Holes at Beaver-Lynx Nickel-Cobalt Property

Nickel to be Added to US List of 50 Critical Minerals

Inomin Mines Inc. (TSXV: MINE) ("Inomin", "MINE" or the "Company") reports it has completed a five hole drill program totaling 715 metres at the Company's Beaver-Lynx Nickel-Cobalt property located in the Cariboo region of British Columbia. Drill holes - testing a strike length of 5.7 km - intersected long intervals of favourable mineralization ranging up to 190 metres in thickness. The diamond drilling program successfully tested the Spur and North Lobe zones, large 5 - 6 kilometre-long areas defined by the preceding ground magnetics survey, believed prospective for nickel and cobalt mineralization (Figure 1). Samples have been shipped to SGS Canada for analyses and results are pending.

Inomin's 100% owned Beaver-Lynx project, approximately 20,000 hectares in size, is located 15 - 25 kilometres east and southeast respectively of Taseko Mines Ltd.'s Gibraltar Mine in British Columbia's Cariboo Region. Initial exploration and metallurgical studies at Beaver in 2013 - 2014, including geophysical surveys and diamond drilling programs, demonstrated the property's potential to host large volumes of near-surface, Class 1 sulphide nickel and cobalt, amenable to conventional extraction methods.

At Beaver, airborne and ground magnetic surveys have identified five magnetite-serpentinite zones in ultramafics with a cumulative strike length of approximately 10 kilometres. Historic drilling at these zones intersected strongly magnetic shallow-dipping serpentinites hosting nickel mineralization in sulphide form.

Given the positive drill results related to areas of significant magnetite-rich serpentinite rocks, Beaver displays potential to host multiple zones of large, disseminated, Class 1 sulphide nickel. Cobalt occurs with nickel mineralization historically ranging from 0.009% to 0.012% cobalt.

The Lynx area is geologically similar to Beaver with even larger prospective targets area. RGS (regional stream sediment) data collected by the Province of British Columbia illustrates the existence of a large 10 x 5 kilometre nickel anomaly at Lynx. An airborne magnetics survey delineated an 8 kilometre-wide ring-like magnetic anomaly and several strong magnetic anomalies - all greater than 2 kilometres in length. The Lynx property shows potential for multiple, large, bulk-tonnage nickel deposits.

The Beaver-Lynx project is situated in relatively flat terrain and easily accessible via all-season roads, as well as a network of forestry roads providing access to most of the property. Other important nearby infrastructure includes electricity (hydro-power) and railroad. Skilled workers, contractors, and supplies are available locally from the city of Williams Lake situated about 20 kilometres south of Lynx.

Nickel Added to Proposed US List of 50 Critical Minerals

The US Geological Survey (USGS) has recently added nickel (and zinc) to its proposed list of 50 critical minerals defined as those essential to economic or national security and with a supply chain vulnerable to disruption.

The US government's 100-day review of supply chains has identified investment in nickel refining capacity, in coordination with allies, as a priority.

According to the review, there could be a large shortage of high-purity Class 1 nickel, needed by battery materials manufacturers, in the next three to seven years.

"If there are opportunities for the US to target one part of the battery supply chain, this would likely be the most critical to provide short and medium-term supply chain stability," the document states, noting that there is an "urgency" to developing a strategy around Class 1 nickel.

VIDEO — Lynette Zang: A Tectonic Shift is Brewing, Get Outside the System Now

A "tectonic shift" is coming as the US moves from one interest rate benchmark to another.

That's according to Lynette Zang, chief market analyst at ITM Trading. She told the Investing News Network that as of June 30, 2023, the US will use the SOFR rate instead of the LIBOR rate, which means contracts across the board will be revalued.

"This level of change has never been attempted before," she said. "I hope I'm wrong, but I don't think they can do it — and Wall Street doesn't think they can do it, which is why they didn't adopt (SOFR) easily."

VIDEO — Lobo Tiggre: Gold, Silver, Uranium and More — Commodities for Now and Later

At this year's Vancouver Resource Investment Conference (VRIC), Lobo Tiggre, editor and founder of IndependentSpeculator.com, spoke about the difference between rationalism and empiricism when it comes to investing.

"The bottom line there is that rationalism is this theory thing; empiricism is what does the data say," he explained. "I think as investors and speculators, to make money you need to look at what's happening now, what does the data say now."

For Tiggre, gold and uranium are two "now" sectors that he's paying attention to.

What Makes a World-class Gold Deposit? (Updated 2023)

The world holds several hundred active gold mines, but not all are created equal. So what makes a world-class deposit?

The world’s largest gold operation by production is Barrick Gold (TSX:ABX,NYSE:GOLD) and Newmont's (TSX:NGT,NYSE:NEM) Nevada Gold Mines joint venture in the US. An important source of gold, the mining complex is comprised of 10 underground mines and 12 surface mines, including the famous Cortez and Goldstrike mines.

Apart from size, what makes a world-class gold deposit? Various characteristics must be considered when determining the status of a gold deposit, including deposit type, average grade and mining and processing costs. Read on to learn more about those three factors and how they can be used to identify world-class gold deposits.
