March 21, 2018 – Vancouver, B.C. – Crystal Lake Mining Corporation (the “Company” or “Crystal Lake Mining”) is pleased to announce that diamond drilling has commenced at its 100%-owned Nicobat Project (nickel-cobalt-copper-precious metals) in the Rainy River district of northwest Ontario. In addition, the company has expanded its deep penetrating airborne electromagnetic survey from the originally planned 500 line kilometers to 850 line kilometers.
Richard Savage, Crystal Lake Mining CEO, stated: “The historic zone outlined at the Nico1 Property, combined with today’s new technologies and a much better understanding of nickel sulfide deposits, gives us confidence that we’re on track for a new discovery in this under-explored district. We’re continuing to develop our pipeline of exceptional nickel sulfide targets across the 50 sq. km project area, and we look forward to providing regular updates through Phase 1 of this program.”
The first two holes at the Nico1 Property will undercut the historic zone to targeted depths of at least 400 meters and are designed to explore beneath the near-surface disseminated and breccia style magmatic sulfide mineralization. The boreholes will provide an ideal geophysical platform for Lamontagne Geophysics’ borehole electromagnetic survey work to detect nearby conductive targets that may correspond to semi-massive and massive sulfides.
