Nickel

NICAN Limited ("NiCAN" or the "Company") (TSXV: NICN) is pleased to report additional diamond drill assay results from the Wine project in Manitoba intersecting a new mineralized zone near surface. These drill holes, Wine-22-06 and Wine-22-07, were part of NiCAN's initial drilling campaign at the Wine project.

Highlights (complete assays set out in Tables 2 and 3) :

  • New mineralized zone intersected near surface.
  • Diamond drill hole Wine-22-06 intersected two distinct zones of mineralization including 9.8 metres at 2.09% Cu, 1.23% Ni (1.92% NiEq), 0.051% Co, 0.33 g/t Au, 0.016 g/t Pt and 0.12 g/t Pd from 7.4 metres to 17.1 metres.

Note: Nickel Equivalent ("NiEq") was calculated using copper and nickel values only.

Brad Humphrey , President and CEO of NiCAN, commented, "The initial diamond drill program at Wine was focused on improving our understanding of the mineralization at the Wine Occurrence. Intersecting additional lenses or pods of mineralization, particularly near surface, is an extremely welcome development. This also supports our view that the Wine gabbro could host several nickel rich pods. NiCAN remains in a strong position with a solid balance sheet and highly prospective nickel-copper assets in stable jurisdictions."

Wine-22-06

Drill hole Wine-22-06 encountered a newly defined lens of nickel mineralization in the upper part of the drill hole, which averaged 1.92% NiEq over 9.8 metres (estimated true width of 6.5 metres). Sulphide mineralization consisted of semi-massive to disseminated pyrrhotite and chalcopyrite with significant copper mineralization near the base of the zone. It is expected that this lens of mineralization will sub-crop.

In addition to the newly defined zone, the drill hole intersected a continuation of a lens of mineralization found in the upper part of drill hole Wine-22-05 (4.1 metres averaging 1.03% Cu, 0.96% Ni (1.31% NiEq)) with 3.1 metres averaging 0.81% Cu, 0.62% Ni (0.89% NiEq), 0.025% Co and 0.25 g/t PGM from 32.3 to 35.4 metres (estimated true width of 2.0 metres) (Figure 1). The drill hole did not intersect the main lens of mineralization found in historical holes and Wine-22-05 as it was too shallow in depth.

All mineralized intersections were hosted by gabbro. The lower intersection in Wine-22-07 was hosted by the distinct light-coloured gabbro that is associated with the main mineralized gabbro zone.

Wine-22-07

Drill hole Wine-22-07 (-60⁰) was drilled directly under drill hole Wine-22-06 (-45⁰) with the intent of intersecting the main zone of mineralization defined in drill hole Wine-22-05. The drill hole intersected the base of the newly defined shallow mineralization seen in Wine-22-06 (5.0 metres averaging 0.59% Cu, 0.23% Ni (0.42% NiEq), 0.01% Co and 0.21 g/t PGM from 9.0 to 14.0 metres). The Wine-22-07 intersection averaged 0.42% NiEq over an estimated true width of 3.3 metres. The upper lens may have a strike of 330⁰ and may correlate to anomalous copper mineralization seen in the upper parts of historical drill holes EEL-346 and RAD07-01. The main mineralized lens is currently interpreted to have a strike of 30⁰ (Figure 2 and 3).

Drill hole Wine-22-07 did not intersect the main zone as it passed through a gap between the upper lens and the main lens.

2022 Exploration Program

The 56.8 km 2 Wine property is located west of Snow Lake in Manitoba (Figure 5). The initial 2022 exploration program included an airborne geophysical survey, partial resampling of a historical drill hole, downhole geophysical (electro-magnetic) surveys and 17 diamond drill holes, 1,600 metres in total, testing an area known as the Wine Occurrence, as well as seven other nearby geophysical anomalies (Figure 6). The objective of this program was to confirm the presence of nickel-copper mineralization at the Wine Occurrence and improve NiCAN's understanding of the geological model and the orientation of the mineralization, which will be used to better target future drilling programs.

NiCAN anticipates receiving and releasing additional assay and geophysical survey results, following quality control, over the next several weeks. The results from this initial exploration work will be used to refine the geological model and to design a follow up Phase 2 exploration program.

Assay, Analysis and QA/QC

All core samples were sent to the Saskatchewan Research Council ("SRC") in Saskatoon (an accredited laboratory) by secure transport for base and precious metal assay. Base metals were assayed by their ICP3 package, which includes a total of 35 analytes by ICP-OES (Inductively Coupled Plasma – Optical Emission Spectroscopy). Partial digestions were performed on a 0.5 gram aliquot of sample pulp which was digested in a mixture of HCl:HNO3, in a hot water bath and then diluted to 15 ml using deionized water. Over-limits for copper, nickel and cobalt had an aliquot of 1.0 gram sample pulp digested in a concentration of HCl:HNO3. The digested volume was then made up with deionized water for analysis by ICP-OES. Fire Assay Techniques involved a 30 gram aliquot of sample pulp which was mixed with a standard fire assay flux in a clay crucible and a silver inquart added prior to fusion. After the mixture was fused, the melt was poured into a form which was cooled. The lead bead was then recovered and cupelled until only the precious metal bead remained. The bead was then parted in dilute HNO3. The precious metals were then dissolved in aqua regia and then diluted for analysis by ICP-OES

Laboratory Quality Control protocols were applied to the assay sample package by SRC. NiCAN submitted a regular schedule of standards, blanks and duplicates into the sample stream for Quality Control measures. Drill core samples are split in half using a diamond saw with half saved for reference and the other half shipped for assay. In the case of duplicate samples the half core is quarter split with the two quarter splits sent for separate assay.

NiCAN does not have any historic QA/QC data for the 2007 or earlier drill results.

World Copper Announces Results from Mancha Amarilla Drilling, Confirms Extension of Mineralization at Escalones Project in Chile

World Copper Announces Results from Mancha Amarilla Drilling, Confirms Extension of Mineralization at Escalones Project in Chile

World Copper Ltd.  (TSXV: WCU) (OTCQC: WCUFF) (FSE: 7LY0) ("World Copper") announces drill results from the Mancha Amarilla target at the Company's Escalones Copper project in Central Chile ("Escalones" or the "Escalones Project"). The Escalones Project has estimated Inferred Mineral Resources of 426 million tonnes of 0.367% copper, based on nearly 25,000 metres of drill core from 53 holes (see news release dated August 23, 2021). World Copper has now completed 1,676 metres of additional drilling along the western-most, road accessible edge of the Mancha Amarilla zone, with the following highlights:

  • Successful completion of first target of Mancha Amarilla drilling, confirming copper oxide mineralization extends at least 150 metres south from previous drilling
  • Oxidation extends to depths of 280 metres below the ridge, as predicted by modeling
  • Confirmation of western flank of Mancha Amarilla mineralized zone with indications that the mineralization should improve eastward into the central areas of the zone

CEO Nolan Peterson commented, "Since restarting work on the Escalones project, World Copper has focused on completing the preliminary economic assessment with respect to the existing Escalones resource, which was completed in February 2022 (see news release dated February 15, 2022), as well as expanding the Escalones' mineral resource south into the adjacent previously untested Mancha Amarilla zone. With the completion of the first phase of the drill programme we have now confirmed what initial reviews indicated - that the Escalones resource has the potential to be significantly larger than its current definition, with oxide mineralization to similar depths as the main deposit. With the western edge of the Mancha Amarilla footprint defined, we now have clear targets for the next phase of drilling, aiming to increase the grade of the overall resource as we test the flanking skarn targets which exhibit some of the highest grades on the property."
