SPC Nickel Announces Additional Successful Drill Results from Janes Ni-Cu-PGM Project






SPC Nickel Corp. (TSX-V: SPC) is pleased to announce additional assay results from the drill program at its Janes Ni-Cu-PGM (Pt+Pd+Au = PGM) Project located in Sudbury, Ontario. The program focused on defining the extent and continuity of the high-grade Trench 1 mineralization and consisted of 16 short, closely spaced drill holes. Assay results from nine of the sixteen holes have been completed and are reported in Table 1.


Grant Mourre, CEO and President of SPC Nickel Corp. commented, “We are pleased with the progress to date at Janes, as the reported drilling results continue to demonstrate the potential for near-surface PGM-rich mineralization. Data for the remaining 7 holes are due in the next few weeks and once available, will be incorporated into the geological model that will allow us to better understand the controls of mineralization. Based on the results to date, we feel the property has the potential to host additional zones of PGM-rich mineralization across the 2,900 hectare property. Our exploration activities to date have been concentrated, however, on a small area representing less than 10% of the total Janes Property. A full interpretation of the potential at Janes and planning for next steps will be undertaken once all the results are received.”


Assay Results: Table 1: Assay results from the Trench 1 target area. Assay results from JP-21-001 were previously reported in SPC Nickel’s press release dated June 17, 2021.


Note: 3E PGM represents Pd g/t + Pt g/t + Au g/t. Equivalent values calculated using the 30-day average metal prices of US$8.03/lb. Ni, US$4.54/lb. Cu, US$1,187/oz Pt, US$2,833/oz Pd, US$1,882/oz Au and $27.77/oz Ag listed in the June 17, 2021, press release. Recoveries were not used in calculations. Note that all drilling intervals are down-hole lengths. True thicknesses cannot be estimated with available information.


The Trench 1 drill program is designed to test the lateral and vertical continuity of the mineralized zone that is exposed at surface in a 35 metre by 30 metres mineralized outcrop. Mineralization at the Trench 1 area is dominated by disseminated sulphides, hosted within a hypersthene-bearing gabbro unit situated 10 metres above the basal contact of the Nipissing sill and the surrounding metasediments. Earlier this year, SPC Nickel completed a channel sampling program at the Trench 1 showing that returned 2.25 g/t Pd, 0.41 g/t Pt, 0.26 g/t Au, 1.09 % Cu and 0.50 % Ni over 22.00 metres (see SPC Nickel Press Release dated May 25, 2021).


The Trench 1 drill program consisted of 16 holes ranging in depth from 27 to 51 metres that tested an area measuring approximately 75 metres by 45 metres. Results from the first nine holes are presented in Table 1 while the remaining holes are being processed with results expected over the next 2 weeks. Table 2 provides collar locations, azimuths and dips for the drill hole included in this release as well as the remaining holes completed in the Trench 1 area.


Refer to Figure 1 for a map of the Trench 1 area displaying the collar locations and drill hole traces of the holes listed in Table 2, as well as historic drill holes completed in the area. Assay results for the drill holes listed in Table 1 are identified by the blue boxes while assay results for all historic holes are displayed in white boxes.
