Canadian North Resources Announces the Completion of its Spring 2023 Diamond Drilling Program on its 100% Owned Ferguson Lake Project in Canada






Canadian North Resources Inc. (TSX-V: CNRI) is pleased to announce it has completed its spring diamond drilling program on ice consisting of 6,151 metres in 21 holes for its 100% owned Ferguson Lake base metal (nickel, copper, cobalt) and platinum group metal (mainly palladium and platinum), project in Nunavut, Canada.


The purpose of the spring on-ice program was to test the main mineralized horizon trending across Ferguson Lake with the focus of completing definition drilling of the East Zone 1 and extending it to the west plus, as well, extending the West Zone further to the East to join it to the Central Zone in the lake.


“The drill program intersected massive sulphides (Figure 1) of the main horizon in 17 out of the 21 holes and successfully intersected a second parallel trending disseminated sulphide zone approximately 200 metres south of the Central Zone,” said Dr. Trevor Boyd, the Vice President of Exploration, “This encouraging second zone has been identified as a separate target from the compilation and re-plotting of an interpreted historic airborne VTEM conductor. It will be followed up with additional drill testing during the summer using a nearby island as a platform.”

Core samples have been submitted for analyses with results pending. Once all the program results are received and compiled, they will be added to the project dataset to improve the block model and to update the Mineral Resource estimate that was filed in 2022 at the end of 2023. (refer to the NI43-101 Technical Report filed on on July 13, 2023).


The Company has now temporarily paused drilling for the spring break-up of the ice on Ferguson Lake and for the caribou migration to pass through the property. The Company plans to resume diamond drilling in June, utilizing up to four drills with the goal of completing a total of at least 20,000 metres and 75 holes during the 2023 exploration season.
