Tartisan Nickel Corp. (CSE:TN)(OTC PINK:TTSRF)(FSE:A2D) ("Tartisan", or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update from the ongoing 10,000 metre diamond drilling program at the 100% owned Kenbridge Nickel Project located in the Kenora Mining District, Ontario. The Phase 1 drill campaign, utilizing 2 drill rigs, is approximately 90% completed. One drill has been mobilized to the Kenbridge North target where it will complete 3 planned drill holes, approximately 500 meters each drill hole. The Kenbridge North target is located approximately 2.5 kilometres north of the Kenbridge Nickel Deposit and was identified from a ground based Time Domain Electromagnetic (TDEM) survey completed in early 2021. The Kenbridge North target is interpreted to represent similar rock types that host the Kenbridge Nickel Deposit
A geophysical crew has completed Time Domain Electromagnetic (TDEM) surveying of holes KB21-199, 201, 202, and 204 in addition to previously surveyed holes KB21-198 and KB21-200. Preliminary interpretation from data collected in KB21-198 and KB21-200 suggest that two parallel, steeply dipping, strongly conductive zones extend below the intersections from holes KB21-198, KB21-200 and KB21-202. Hole KB21-204 was targeted to test these same interpreted conductors approximately 200 metres down dip of KB21-202. Highlights from KB21-202 included two nickel-copper zones (Zone A and B) at a drill depth of 663.0 metres and 693.7 metres. KB21-202 Zone A returned 25.5 metres of 1.13% Ni and 0.61% Cu including higher grade intersections of 4.5 metres of 2.96% Ni and 1.66% Cu and 1.5 metres of 4.17% Ni and 2.14% Cu. (SEDAR October 12, 2021). Hole KB21-204 has been completed with assays pending. Hole KB21-205 was completed to a depth of 1179 metres and intersected the gabbro pyroxenite host rock approximately 150m north of KB21-204. Assays are also pending. Hole KB21-206 is in progress and is targeted to test the gabbro pyroxenite host rocks between KB21-204 and KB21-205.
Interpretation of all available data including recently acquired borehole TDEM and drill core assays will be incorporated into the existing geological model to aid in guiding additional diamond drilling, particularly downdip of the known mineralization.
The current drill program was designed to target the down dip and along strike extension of the Kenbridge Ni-Cu Deposit and to test the Kenbridge North target.
