Nickel

NICAN Limited ("NiCAN" or the "Company") (TSXV: NICN) has received outstanding assay results from the first two diamond drill holes drilled in 2022 at the Wine project in Manitoba . These drill holes were part of NiCAN's initial drilling campaign at the Wine project and were drilled vertically to gain an understanding of the overall thickness and orientation of mineralization encountered in the historical drilling.

Highlights (complete assays are set out in Tables 1 and 2) :

  • Diamond drill hole Wine-22-05 intersected three distinct zones of mineralization including 27.3 metres at 2.01% Ni, 1.81% Cu, 0.09% Co, 0.20 g/t Au and 0.28 g/t Pd from 43.0 to 69.3 metres (NiEq of 2.61%)
  • Diamond drill hole Wine-22-02 intersected four zones of mineralization including 2.8 metres at 1.87% Ni, 0.64% Cu, 0.08% Co and 0.46 g/t Pd from 45.8 to 48.6 metres (NiEq of 2.08%).

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

Brad Humphrey , President, and CEO of NiCAN commented, "This is an excellent result from our initial drilling at the Wine project. This drilling program was designed to improve our understanding of the Wine Occurrence, confirm the mineralization encountered in the historical drilling and determine the orientation of the mineralized body. Intersecting multiple zones containing high nickel equivalent values is very encouraging."

2022 Exploration Program

The 56.8 km 2 Wine property is located west of Snow Lake in Manitoba (Figure 4). 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. 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 the 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 plan.

Wine-22-02

Immediately following the overburden, drill hole Wine-22-02 intersected 0.7 metres averaging 0.64% Cu and 0.27% Ni (NiEq of 0.49%) from 7.2 to 7.9 metres. This was followed by three additional mineralized intersections down hole, including 4.6 metres averaging 1.02% Cu and 0.74% Ni (NiEq of 1.07%), 0.3% Co and 0.28 g/t PGMs ("Au+Pt+Pd") from 34.9 to 39.5 metres; 2.8 meters averaging 0.64% Cu and 1.87% Ni (NiEq of 2.08%), 0.08% Co and 0.56 g/t PGMs from 45.8 to 48.6 metres as well as 6.1 metres averaging 1.9% Cu, 0.09% Ni (NiEq of 0.71%), 0.003% Co and 2.49 g/t PGMs from 60.8 to 66.9 metres (Figure 1).

There appears to be a strong correlation between intersections of higher-grade copper assays and elevated PGM grades. An 11.20% Cu assay from 60.8 to 61.4 metres also returned 6.0 g/t Au, 1.01 g/t Pt and 1.47 g/t Pd. Another significant copper assay of 9.47% Cu from 66.5 to 66.9 metres also returned 8.35 g/t Au, 1.20 g/t Pt and 6.18 g/t Pd.

All mineralized intersections were hosted by gabbro with the last three hosted by a distinct light-coloured gabbro unit.

Wine-22-05

Wine-22-05 was drilled 16 metres northeast of Wine-22-02 and intersected three zones of mineralization starting at 25.0 metres downhole. They include 4.1 metres averaging 1.03% Cu and 0.96% Ni (NiEq of 1.31%), 0.05% Co and 0.29 g/t PGMs from 25.0 to 29.1 metres; 3.8 metres averaging 2.42% Cu and 0.52% Ni (NiEq of 1.27%), 0.03% Co and 0.92 g/t PGMs from 34.8 to 38.4 metres and 27.3 metres averaging 1.81% Cu and 2.01% Ni (NiEq of 2.61%) , 0.09% Co, 0.46 g/t PGMs from 43.0 to 69.3 metres. All were hosted by the light-coloured gabbro unit (Figure 1).

The initial mineralized zone encountered in drill hole Wine-22-05, which intersected 4.6 metres averaging 1.02% Cu and 0.74% Ni (NiEq of 1.07%), is interpreted to be a separate zone than that intersected in drill hole Wine-22-02. Further work is required to determine this zone's extent and characterization. Subsequent zones intersected in the drill hole can be correlated to those in drill hole Wine-22-02, as well as historical drill hole RAD07-01 (20.4 metres averaging 1.38% Ni and 2.14% Cu (NiEq of 2.09% Ni)), EEL-346 (16.5 metres averaging 0.85% Ni and 1.50% Cu (NiEq of 1.35% Ni)) and EEL-302 (12.8 metres averaging 0.52% Ni and 0.97% Cu (NiEq of 0.84% Ni)) (Figure 2) (see press release dated August 23, 2022 ).

On the section where drill hole Wine-22-05 intersects proximal to historical drill holes EEL-346 and RAD07-01, the mineralized zone is estimated at a true width of 16 metres and a thickness of 27 metres.

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.

NiCAN's VTEM Survey Identifies Multiple Targets on the Wine Nickel Property in Manitoba, Canada

NiCAN's VTEM Survey Identifies Multiple Targets on the Wine Nickel Property in Manitoba, Canada

NiCan Limited ("NiCAN" or the "Company") (TSXV: NICN) provides the initial results from a Versatile Time Domain Electromagnetic ("VTEM") airborne geophysical survey completed in 2022 at the Wine project in Manitoba, Canada (Figure 3). This survey was designed to accurately define the location and depth of conductive sources that have a nickel mineralization signature. Preliminary interpretations indicate there is a distinct VTEM response to the Wine Occurrence, which had not been recognized in historical airborne surveys.

logo (CNW Group/Nican Ltd.)

A significant number of additional VTEM anomalies, typically with subtle coincident magnetic responses, have been defined within the Wine Gabbro (Figure 1 sets out the responses at a 50-metre depth).  All of the selected VTEM anomalies are currently being geophysically modelled in order to be prioritized for subsequent drill testing, which is planned for the first quarter of 2023.

Note: There are five additional geophysical targets selected for modelling at the south end of the Wine property not shown in figure.

Brad Humphrey , President and CEO of NiCAN, stated, "We are very pleased with the VTEM survey results and the ability to define additional targets within the immediate Wine Gabbro area that hosts the Wine Occurrence. The Company is currently designing and prioritizing the next set of drill targets for the upcoming winter program, which will focus on testing these newly defined geophysical targets. NiCAN is in a strong position with a solid balance sheet and highly prospective nickel projects in established mining jurisdictions."

A preliminary 3D model of the VTEM data has been received and merged with NiCAN's detailed 3D aeromagnetic model completed in 2021 to determine the relationship between conductivity and magnetic responses. In the region of the Wine Gabbro, deep seated magma chambers postulated to be feeder zones to the near surface nickel mineralization have been inferred from the aeromagnetic data. Conductive responses defined from the VTEM survey are interpreted to be sulphide rich horizons associated with these magnetic responses (Figure 2). The intrusion appears to cut into the sulphide horizons with the magma chambers, providing the ability to trap significant sulphur. Additional work is required to determine the nickel potential of this newly defined environment.

Beyond the immediate Wine Gabbro area, it was also noted that several VTEM responses of merit have been defined in the southern portion of the property, within the Reed Lake Mafic-Ultramafic Complex, where past rock sampling has indicated anomalous copper and PGM values. These potential targets on the southern portion of the property are currently being geophysically modelled for subsequent drill testing in 2023.

Analogies to Historical Lynn Lake Nickel Deposits

NiCAN believes that the mineralization hosted by the Wine Gabbro may have analogies to the nickel-copper deposits in the Lynn Lake area where approximately 22.2 million tonnes averaging 1.0% nickel and 0.5% copper was historically mined. The Farley Mine was made up of multiple lenses (~16) of mineralization contained within a 4.2 km 2 gabbro body. The Wine Gabbro contains a number of similarities and has seen very little exploration for nickel-copper deposits.

QA/QC

With respect to the Geotech 2022 Versatile time-domain airborne electromagnetic ("VTEM") geophysical data collected over the Wine project area in Manitoba, Canada , a total of 550 line-km of VTEM data was collected on east-west lines with a line spacing of 100m . The VTEM data were quality controlled first by Geotech before being sent to Geophysical consultants for further quality control purposes. The data were then used to create 3D electrical conductivity inversion models using a combination of parametric and voxel inversion approaches.

The 3D voxel inversion of the 2022 VTEM data used 20m x 20m x 20m mesh cell sizes in the core region of the mesh with a starting and reference model set to the various parametric anomalies embedded within a uniform 10,000 Ωm background. Inversion uncertainties were set to 3% with a noise floor of 1e-12 V/Am2.

The 2022 Geotech VTEM survey over the Wine project in the Snow Lake area of Manitoba was inverted in 3D to create a best fitting conductivity model. The final inversion consisted of many parametric inversions combined to form the starting model for a voxel inversion. The parametric inversions created best-fitting ellipsoids that represented the various strong conductors in the region, and then the traditional voxel inversion was able to take the parametric starting model and refine it as well as add near-surface information that was missing from the parametric inversions.

Collectively, these 3D inversion models highlight many strong conductive features in the Wine project area, and the interpretation of these anomalies should help to better understand the geologic and structural setting, which in turn can help generate future drill targets.

Top 5 Nickel Stocks on the TSX and TSXV in 2022

Click here to read the previous top nickel stocks article.

Nickel prices had cooled off in Q3 after seeing huge gains earlier in the year, but it has begun climbing back up.

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.”
