Flying Nickel Mining Corp. (TSX-V: FLYN) (OTCQB: FLYNF) is pleased to announce final PGM assay results from the Company’s 100% owned Minago Nickel PGM project in the Thompson Nickel Belt, Manitoba.
Flying Nickel has received and released assay results of 3,549 samples totalling 4,025 meters from 47 holes since the start of PGM assay program in January 2023. Overall, the PGM assay results confirmed significant platinum and palladium intersections throughout the MinagoNose Deposit. The Company successfully completed the program on schedule. Flying Nickel’s next step is to update Minago mineral resource estimate by including the project’s first-ever PGM resource.
This final batch of assay results total 168 meters from 2 drill holes. Highlights from this latest assay data set include:
N-07-26 grading 0.31% Ni, 0.289 g/t Pt, 0.42 g/t Pd and 0.004 g/t Au (0.713 g/t PGM+Au) over a 4.99 meter interval from 207.8 meters downhole.
Hole N-07-21 did not contain any significant PGM assay results.
Assay results for hole N-07-26 are tabulated below:
|Hole ID||From||To||Length||Ni %||Au g/t||Pt g/t||Pd g/t||Au+Pt+Pd g/t||NiEq %|
* Detection limit is 10 ppm for Ni, 10 ppm for Cu, 10 ppm for Co, 5 ppb Au, 10 ppb Pt and 5 ppb Pd using GE_FAI5V5_Au, Pt, Pd, FAS ICP-AES, 50g-5ml @SGS Burnaby Geochemistry Laboratories.
When calculating composite grades, half the detection limit value was used when assay results were less than the detection limit. True widths are approximately half the width observed in core.
NiEq % (Resource) = ( (Ni% x 22.04 x Ni Price $/lb) + (Cu% x 22.04 x Cu Price $/lb) + (Pt gpt / 31.1035) x Pt $/oz +(Pd gpt / 31.1035) x Pd $/oz + (Au gpt / 31.1035) x Au $/oz)/(22.04 x Ni $/lb). This calculation assumes 100% recovery rates and does not include Cobalt due to a lack of data. Calculation is an estimation of resource potential. Metal prices are Ni $12.4/lb, Cu $4.1/lb, Pd $1,721/oz, Pt $1,068/oz, Au $1,904/oz based on January 13, 2023.
Flying Nickel and Nevada Vanadium Mining Corp. (“Nevada Vanadium”) also announce that further to their joint press releases dated October 5, 2022 and August 23, 2022, Flying Nickel and Nevada Vanadium continue to work diligently with their respective advisors towards completion of the proposed acquisition of all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Nevada Vanadium by Flying Nickel by way of plan of arrangement. Flying Nickel and Nevada Vanadium expect to update the closing schedule in August 2023.
About Minago Project
The Minago Project is located in Canada’s Thompson Nickel Belt and currently has a NI 43-101 compliant open pit optimized and underground, Measured and Indicated resource of 44.2 million tonnes grading 0.74% Ni (722 million lbs contained nickel) and Inferred resource of 19.6 million tonnes grading 0.74% Ni (319 million lbs contained nickel). The resource split is approximately 78% Nose deposit and 22% North Limb deposit at Minago. This technical report, completed by Mercator and AGP, has an effective date of February 28, 2022, and is available under the Company’s profile on SEDAR.
There has been cumulative 90,783 meters of drilling at the Minago Project by 6 operators since 1966. Additionally, Flying Nickel drilled 2,718 meters in 2022 since acquiring the Minago Project in February 2021.
Total length of PGM assay sections and number of boreholes is estimated. Maps and charts are available at www.flynickel.com
The sampling process incorporated blanks (Ordovician crushed homogeneous limestone), standards (certified reference material: CDN-ME) and duplicates (core duplicate ¼). QAQC samples were inserted at intervals of 20, which represent 6%.
