Tartisan Nickel Corp. (CSE:TN; OTC PINK:TTSRF; FSE:A2D) ("Tartisan", or the "Company") is pleased to update shareholders on the Company's operations in the Republic of Peru. The Don Pancho polymetallic Silver-Lead-Zinc project ("Don Pancho") located in the department of Lima, Peru, 110 kilometres north-northeast of Lima, comprising of two concessions totalling 849 hectares. The project is located in a prolific polymetallic mineral belt in central Peru with several operating mines in the area, including Minas de Buenaventura's silver-lead-zinc-manganese (Ag-Pb-Zn-Mn) Uchucchacua mine located 66 kilometres north of Don Pancho which produced more than 15 million ounces of silver in 2018

Previous exploration on the property includes an extensive surface mapping and sampling program, geophysics, and a small diamond drilling program conducted by a private Peruvian company in 2014. Mapping and sampling by the previous operators defined two main mineralized zones. The main zone called "Yanapallaca" is an extensive NNW-SSE-trending breccia zone covering a surface area of over 800 metres in length and up to 200 metres in width. Numerous small old workings and three underground drifts exist within this zone. One of the adits crosscut a two metre wide massive sulphide vein grading 106 g/t Ag, 3.26% Pb, 17.56% Zn and 2.58% Mn. Other untested mineralized structures located within this zone that are exposed on surface include chip over 1 metre returning 406 g/t Ag and 27.05% Pb.

The second mineralized zone called "La Cruz" is located several hundreds of metres NE of Yanapallaca shows two mineralized trends. Sampling across the main N-S trend returned 96.6 g/t Ag, 5.53% Pb and 0.88% Zn over 1.50 metres with a crosscutting WNW-ESE structure grading 360 g/t Ag and 12.66% Pb over a 1 metre width. Very little work has been conducted by the previous operators on this prospective area.

Tartisan is pleased to announce the appointment of Carlos Agreda Minaya as the General Manager for Tartisan's Peruvian subsidiary, Minera Tartisan Peru S.A.C. Mr. Agreda is an experienced manager with a MBA from Peru's highly reputable ESAN program. Mr. Agreda has extensive experience in permitting, accounting and mineral processing. Mr. Agreda is very knowledgeable of the Company's Don Pancho property and has submitted the necessary permits to start an underground bulk sampling program. Mr. Agreda is also the General Manager of Peruvian Metals Corp., a Canadian junior explorer in Peru with a processing plant located in Northern Peru where mineral from the Don Pancho will be processed.

Click here to read the previous top nickel stocks article.

After seeing huge gains earlier in the year, nickel is not too far above its 2022 starting point.

Back in Q1, nickel rocketed to US$100,000 per metric ton (MT) — an all-time high and a rise of 250 percent over the course of two days, prompting the London Metal Exchange (LME) to suspend trading of the metal.

“We are now broadly back where we started pre-LME trading halt,” Sean Mulshaw of Wood Mackenzie told the Investing News Network (INN) in Q2. “We expect a downward trend in nickel prices over the rest of this year and, given where we are now, we could be heading below US$22,000 in Q3.”
