Nickel

Voltage Metals Corp., ("Voltage" or the "Company") (CSE: VOLT) has commenced a diamond drill exploration program at the Company's 100% owned St. Laurent Nickel-Copper-Cobalt Project, located 160 km northeast of Timmins, Ontario . The program consists of approximately 3,000 metres of drilling with downhole geophysical surveys to define deeper conductive targets for testing in the later phases of the program.

The St. Laurent Project has received minimal exploration activity since the initial discovery in the mid 1960's when nickel-copper mineralization was first identified in a series of shallow drill holes. Subsequent airborne geophysical surveys defined a strong electromagnetic (EM) anomaly with an associated bullseye magnetic response, both of which are coincident with the mineralized zone. Diamond drilling in 2008 and 2019 identified geological characteristics indicative of a gabbro breccia/conduit hosted style nickel mineralization comparable to the Lynn Lake Deposit (28.4 million tons @ 0.91% Ni, 0.49% Cu) 1 the Kenbridge deposit (7.5 million tonnes @ 0.58% Ni, 0.32% Cu) 2 , and the Montcalm Deposit (3.9 million tonnes @ 1.3% Ni, 0.67% Cu, 0.05 Co) 3 .

During the last phase of diamond drilling (2019), the highest nickel grades on the project were intersected with three separate intervals of >1.0% Ni, as well as the widest intersection ( 113.4 m ) of low-grade nickel mineralization, (see Table 1) . Nickel assays in conjunction with the associated sulphur results indicate a high nickel tenor 4 of 5% Ni for massive sulphides (35% S) in the magmatic system. Drilling to date has failed to intersect massive sulphides, yet strong airborne and borehole EM anomalies suggest the presence of strongly conductive sulphides.

Bob Bresee , CEO of Voltage states: "The high nickel tenor of the St. Laurent magmatic system includes appreciable amounts of cobalt and PGE's, which combined with a high nickel grade provides an extremely exciting exploration target due to the high dollar value of the contained minerals. A series of borehole and airborne EM anomalies extending along an 800-metre-long corridor allows us to focus our drilling activities in this most prospective area. Massive sulphides and high-grade nickel are the primary exploration focus, but we are also keeping in mind the historical wide, low grade nickel intersections, which are interesting given the current robust metal prices."

About the St. Laurent Project:
  • The St. Laurent Project covers 4,170 hectares and is located in St. Laurent Township , Northern Ontario , 160 kilometres northeast of Timmins , 50 kilometres south of the Detour Lake Mine and 20 kilometres southwest of the Casa Berardi Mine.
  • Past shallow drilling at the St. Laurent Project encountered disseminated, multi-element sulphide mineralization across notable widths, trending towards a large gabbro-hosted magnetic feature.
  • The Ni-Cu-Co-Au-Pt-Pd zone is open along strike and at depth. This mineralized zone is coincident with a strong 800-metre-long EM anomaly.
  • Drilling to date has not yet intersected massive sulphides, and the strong airborne EM anomaly has not yet been explained. The disseminated sulphide halo provides an important vector to guide upcoming exploration work.
  • Nickel tenor at St Laurent is high at 5% in the system.

Property Acquisition

Voltage has entered into an option agreement to acquire the Jerry Lake nickel/copper property located 140 km northeast of Timmins Ontario . The Jerry Lake intrusion has never been evaluated with ground geophysical surveys and has only had a single drill hole which failed to reach bedrock. The Ni-Cu sulphide potential of the Jerry Lake gabbro is supported by a well pronounced chalcopyrite and nickel-in-till dispersal fan in the down-ice location.
