North American Nickel Inc. (TSXV:NAN,OTCBB:WSCRF) discovered Imiak North with diamond drill hole MQ-13-029. MQ-13-029, beginning 57.75 metres down the hole, intersected 55.75m metres of sulphide mineralization, including 9.99 metre core length of near solid to solid sulphides, averaging approximately 30-40% total sulphides. Imiak North, is 950 metres northeast of the Imiak Hill intersections and 1200 metres northwest of the Spotty Hill discovery.
As quoted in the press release:
MQ-13-029, beginning 57.75 metres down the hole, intersected 55.75m metres of sulphide mineralization, including;
- 9.99 metre core length of near solid to solid sulphides averaging approximately 30-40% total sulphides, and
- 45.76 metre core length of disseminated, blebby and net textured sulphide mineralization averaging approximately 3 – 5% sulphides.
As at Imiak Hill and Spotty Hill, mineralization remains open at depth at Imiak North.
North American Nickel Inc. CEO, Rick Mark, said:
We are very pleased to inform shareholders that the Company’s exploration program continues to deliver discoveries of near solid to solid sulphide mineralization at Maniitsoq. This discovery at Imiak North is in close vicinity to Imiak Hill’s nickel, copper, cobalt mineralization and Spotty Hill’s nickel, copper, cobalt and PGM mineralization. And, according to our borehole surveys, these mineralized zones are all open at depth. This follows the conduit model our geological team is using anticipating the nickel mineralization to accumulate in an embayment or footwall contact below these discoveries.
