Vancouver, B.C. – Crystal Lake Mining Corporation (the “Company” or “Crystal Lake Mining”) is pleased to provide an update on its 100%-owned “Nicobat Project” where the Company is developing a pipeline of highly prospective nickel sulfide targets. Recently expanded to cover 50 sq. kilometers in northwest Ontario’s Rainy River district, Nicobat features excellent infrastructure (road, rail and power access) and an historic nickel-copper-cobalt sulfide mineral zone (“Nico1”) defined by drilling more than four decades ago.
- Crews are mobilizing to commence drilling within the next seven days at Nico1 on the western contact of the Dobie Intrusion (below and north of the historic zone);
- Lamontagne Geophysics Ltd. has been contracted to carry out surface and then borehole EM surveys upon completion of diamond drill holes at Nico1;
- A deep penetrating EM survey will be flown by CGG Canada Services Ltd. over Crystal Lake’s claims including the Nico1 and Nico2 properties. The objective of the survey is to detect an electrically conductive signature of sulfide mineralization associated with mafic intrusive bodies and strong magnetic anomalies that may represent mafic-ultramafic intrusions under cover.
Crystal Lake Mining has assembled a proven geological and geophysical team to unlock the full potential of its Nicobat Project which is being targeted for high-grade nickel, copper, cobalt and precious metal mineralization.
The Rainy River district is situated between major trans-lithospheric faults, and the mafic-ultramafic intrusions in this region are prospective for magmatic sulfide mineralization.
The Nicobat Project is near Emo, Ontario, approximately 35 km east of the Rainy River gold mine.
