SPC Nickel Initiates Drill Program on the West Graham Nickel-Copper Project, Sudbury, Ontario

07.05.2024 | 13:00 Uhr | CNW

SUDBURY, May 7, 2024 - SPC Nickel Corp. (TSXV: SPC) ("SPC Nickel" or the "Company"), is pleased to provide an update on progress at the Company's West Graham Project and to announce the commencement of the 2024 drill program.

The drill program is expected to include 2,500 metres of drilling over 40 holes. The Company anticipates 1-2 weeks of site preparation followed by two months of drilling with completion scheduled for the end of July.

Objectives:

  • To fully define the nickel-copper resource within the limits of a conceptual starter open-pit (See Figure 1).
  • Completion of preliminary geotechnical work on the sulphide mineralization and surrounding host rocks for inclusion within the engineering design of the pit wall slopes.
  • Refine the West Graham economic viability and development plans.

Grant Mourre, President and CEO of SPC Nickel commented, "We are excited to initiate our 2024 diamond drill program. The program will provide information toward evaluating West Graham as a low-strip ratio, higher-grade starter pit. Having released our maiden mineral resource estimate for the project earlier this year, we are eager to move the West Graham Project forward aggressively. As we build on the work that went into producing our resource estimate, we are focused on providing the geological data required to more precisely define the economic potential we believe exists across the entire Lockerby East Property. This drill program, supported by our recent channel sampling work and the ongoing metallurgical assessment of West Graham will bring us an important step closer to realizing this goal. We look forward to sharing our results with investors at the earliest opportunity."

Project Updates

Preliminary results from the on-going metallurgical testwork initiated in April (See news release dated April 2, 2024) are expected in the coming weeks. The study is focused on mineralization from 6 holes completed within the boundaries of the conceptual starter open-pit. The study will provide valuable information regarding the grindability of the sulphide ore and the potential recoveries to be expected.

The Company has also just completed an extensive channel sampling program on the up-dip surface exposure of the West Graham Deposit. A total of 139 samples were collected from 8 continuous channel samples totalling 138.5 metres in length. The inclusion of the channel sampling results into the existing resource model will allow for the mineralized zones to be extended to surface. Highlights from nearby drill holes include WG-23-063 that intersected 59.0 metres at 0.71% Ni, 0.38% Cu from 2.0-61.0 metres (See news release dated November 20, 2023). Assay results for the channel samples will be released when available.

As part of the Company's on-going process to define the economics of the West Graham Deposit more precisely, a series of 7 samples were selected from 2 drill holes (WG-23-026 and WG-23-042) completed in 2023 that intersected significant intervals of semi-massive to massive sulphide mineralization (See news release dated, October 10, 2023).

  • WG-23-026: 7.90 metres @ 2.48% Ni and 0.64% Cu from 170.0 to 177.9 metres
  • WG-23-042: 20.0 metres @ 1.71% Ni and 0.46% Cu from 286.0 to 306.0 metres

The samples were submitted to the Ontario Ministry of Mines Geoscience Laboratories in Sudbury, Ontario and analysed by Nickel Fire Assay for full suite PGM's (Iridium, Osmium, Rhodium, Ruthenium, Platinum, Palladium and Gold).

The results of the analysis returned high-grade values for many of the other more 'exotic' precious metals including Iridium, Osmium, Rhodium and Ruthenium (see Table 1).
