MANITOBA – Toronto-based Mustang Minerals reports that it has drilled 3.0 metres of 2.95% Cu and 0.55% Ni in the M2 zone at the Mayville property 150 km northeast of Winnipeg. Two holes drilled in the zone extended mineralization at depth and intersected PGM mineralization in the footwall of the deposit.

The Mayville Intrusion hosts the M2 zone resource which is a magmatic nickel-copper system. Sulphide mineralization consists of chalcopyrite, pyrrhotite, pentlandite and pyrite and a variety of textures ranging from disseminated to locally massive. The M2 deposit has a current strike length of over 1.0 km and remains open at depth. The current near surface resource is 9.2 million tonnes at 0.61% Cu and 0.23% Ni

A long section of the M2 Deposit and sections and drill hole information have been posted at the Company website at MustangMinerals.com.
