Timmins Nickel Project
Exploration at the Timmins Nickel Project in 2022 will include:
- Completing geophysical surveys and 3D inversion modelling to refine existing targets identified by historic work.
- Completing a 10-hole, 2,500-metre core drilling program at its North Claim block.
- Completing a 3-hole, 1,200-metre core drilling program at its South Claim block.
The Property consists of two (2) separate mineral claim blocks and is located within the Timmins mining camp in Ontario, Canada, a highly prolific mining complex with over 100 hundred years of history and well supported by major infrastructure including highways, rail, and relatively inexpensive hydroelectric power.
The “North Block” consists of 236 claims located approximately 21 kilometres west of Canada Nickel Company’s (CNC’s) Crawford Project (as shown in Figure 1 below) where CNC has completed a preliminary economic assessment only 20 months after the commencement of exploration drilling that indicates 25-year mine with an after-tax NPV8% of $1.2 billion[i]. It is also situated southwest of Kingsmill, Mahaffy-Aubin, and Nesbitt North, properties acquired from Noble Mineral Exploration by Canada Nickel through option agreements earlier in 2021[ii].
The “South Block” consists of 50 claims contiguous to Canada Nickel’s MacDiarmid Project (as shown in Figure 2 below) where in May 2021, Canada Nickel announced a secondary discovery through the identification of significant intersections of mineralized dunite similar to the average mineralization initially discovered at Crawford. Geophysical surveys reveal that the MacDiarmid target to be approximately 1.8 kilometres long indicating a structural footprint averaging 400 meters in width – 15% larger than Canada Nickel’s original Crawford’s Main Zone discovery[iii].
