Xander Resources Engages Geotech to Fly VTEM Survey at Timmins Nickel Project

by | Nov 22, 2021

Vancouver, British Columbia / November 22, 2021 – Xander Resources Inc. (“Xander” or the “Company”) (TSXV: XND) (OTCQB: XNDRF) (FSX: 1XI) is pleased to announce that further to its news release dated November 4, 2021 announcing commencement of fieldwork at its Timmins Nickel Project (the “Property”), it has contracted the services of Geotech Airborne Geophysical Surveys to carry out a 163 line-kilometre Helicopter Borne VTEM survey.

The survey is expected to be flown in late-February and will be completed over the 50 claims contiguous to Canada Nickel’s MacDiarmid Project that comprise the “South Block” of the Property (as shown in Figure 1 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[i].

The objective of the geophysical survey is to build upon a historical magnetic survey which has identified a magnetic conductor and to better identify geologic structures and discrete conductive anomalies that represent masses of sulphides. The Company expects to have interpretations completed and initial drill targets selected shortly thereafter to assess anomalies outlined by the survey.

Xander CEO Deepak Varshney, comments: “Utilizing the VTEM, with its exceptional ability to identify deep hidden structures, should provide us a much clearer picture of what targets to prioritize for our first drill program. The VTEM data will provide the final pieces to our puzzle by connecting modern geophysics with associated geological evidence as we work towards a potential important new discovery at our Timmins Project.”

The Company is presently an exploration stage company. Exploration is highly speculative in nature, involves many risks, requires substantial expenditures, and may not result in the discovery of mineral deposits that can be mined profitably. Furthermore, the Company currently has no reserves on any of its properties. As a result, there can be no assurance that such forward-looking statements will prove to be accurate, and actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements.
