Vancouver, British Columbia TheNewswire - September 8, 2022 Xander Resources Inc. ("Xander" or the "Company") (TSXV:XND) (OTC:XNDRF) (FSX:1XI) is pleased to provide an exploration update at its Timmins Nickel Project located near Timmins, Ontario.
The Company is pleased to announce that EarthEx Geophysical Solutions Inc. has completed the UAV‑borne magnetic survey over specific targets at the northern claim block and is presently awaiting the results. A total of 145 line-kilometres at 50 metre line-spacing with 500 metre tie-lines was flown as part of the UAV‑borne magnetic survey.
The Company is also pleased to announce that it has received the initial results of its 3D Magnetic Inversion Study using historical VTEM data. The data confirms that there are multiple conductors present that have the potential for hosting massive sulfide nickel deposits similar to the discoveries nearby by Canada Nickel Company.
The Company will work in the coming weeks to integrate the results from its UAV-born magnetic survey with the final results of the Inversion Study. The Company remains on track to commence drilling the project beginning Fall 2022 and is currently accepting bids from drill contractors. As indicated previously, a minimum of 2,500 metres is anticipated to be drilled over two (2) months, with the drill hole list and plan to be finalized following the completion of inversion works.
Deepak Varshney, Xander CEO, said, "So far in 2022 it has been a year of steady progress for Xander despite the challenges of the rapidly changing geo-economic climate and the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. In late 2021 we completed an accelerated buyout of our Sennevillle properties in Quebec and acquired the Timmins Nickel Project. The closing of our oversubscribed private placement has put us in a position where a well funded treasury now lets us focus on exploration and we look forward to drilling these two excellent projects in the coming months."
Senneville Gold Project
The Company is also pleased to announce that it has mobilized its technical team to its Senneville Gold Project following the completion of the 1,150 line-kilometre, fixed-wing, high-resolution aeromagnetic gradiometer and digital VLF-EM survey using Terraquest Ltd.'s Matrix Digital VLF-EM frequency system.
The purpose of the visit will be to complete a ground examination of high-importance areas and to assist in planning for a drill program planned to commence in early 2023.
