Xander Resources Commences Maiden Drilling Program at the Timmins Nickel Project

(TheNewswire)

Xander Resources Inc.

Xander Resources Inc. ("Xander" or the "Company") (TSXV: XND) (OTCQB: XNDRF) (FSX: 1XI) a North American mineral acquisition and exploration company focused on the development of drill-ready battery and precious metal projects, is pleased to announce that it has commenced drilling at its Timmins Nickel Project (the "Project") in located in Timmins, Ontario

Highlights

  • The maiden diamond drilling program focuses on the conductors and/or magnetic trends identified by airborne electromagnetic surveys (VTEM and UAV-borne magnetic surveys), particularly those near Canada Nickel Company's ("CNC") recently identified Reid Discovery, which has already been tested by drilling, to have a mineralized footprint 90% as large as CNC's Crawford Project . CNC's Crawford Project has completed a preliminary economic assessment only 20 months after the commencement of exploration drilling that indicates 25-year mine with an after-tax NPV 8% of $1.2 billion.

  • The targeted conductors coincide with favourable geometries for sulphide accumulation within a mineralized ultramafic intrusion, as interpreted by a 3D magnetic inversion.

  • Forage DCB Drilling of Rouyn-Noranda will carry out the drilling operations. One drill rig has been mobilized onto the Property.

The drill program is anticipated to comprise between 2,500 and 4,000 metres (NQ) with a focus on the Company's "North Block" of claims. The objective of the program will be to drill a series of high-priority geophysical anomalies within the Property, supplemented by soil sampling results, with a particular focus on the targets near Canada Nickel Company's ("CNC") recently identified Reid Discovery.

Holes F and G are planned to be drilled approximately 500 and 1,000 metres to the west and are a primary target for the drilling program. Xander's claim boundaries are enclosed in red.

Deepak Varshney, CEO of Xander Resources stated: "We are very excited to commence our maiden program in Timmins. Commencing exploratory drilling is an important milestone and we believe that this project is part of the journey we will need to take in North America to secure a domestic supply of nickel."

The Property

The Property consists of two (2) separate mineral claim blocks and is located within the Timmins mining camp in Ontario, Canada, a highly prolific mining complex with over 100 hundred years of history and well supported by major infrastructure including highways, rail, and relatively inexpensive hydroelectric power.

The "North Block" consists of 343 claims located approximately 45 kilometres west of Canada Nickel Company's (CNC's) Crawford Project (as shown in Figure 2 below) where CNC has completed a preliminary economic assessment only 20 months after the commencement of exploration drilling that indicates 25-year mine with an after-tax NPV 8% of $1.2 billion i . It is also situated southwest of Kingsmill, Mahaffy-Aubin, and Nesbitt North, properties acquired from Noble Mineral Exploration by Canada Nickel through option agreements earlier in 2021 ii .

The "South Block" consists of 50 claims contiguous to Canada Nickel's MacDiarmid Project (as shown in Figure 3 below) where in May 2021, Canada Nickel announced a secondary discovery through the identification of significant intersections of mineralized dunite similar to the average mineralization initially discovered at Crawford. Geophysical surveys reveal that the MacDiarmid target to be approximately 1.8 kilometres long indicating a structural footprint averaging 400 meters in width – 15% larger than Canada Nickel's original Crawford's Main Zone discovery iii .
