NORTHERN ONTARIO – FALCONBRIDGE, the operator of FIRST NICKEL’s exploration program at the Foy Mouth property, has intersected 12.85 metres of 1.53% Ni, 0.97% Cu and 24.65 metres of 1.07% Ni and 0.48% Cu in drill holes beneath a surface showing. The Foy Mouth property is located on the North Range of the Sudbury Basin, at the intersection of the Sudbury Igneous Complex and the Foy Offset Dyke.
Three previously unreported zones of nickel sulphide mineralization, McGrindle Creek West, Sovereign Trend, and McGrindle Creek East zones, were drilled by Falconbridge in 2005 and assays are as yet incomplete. Check www.FirstNickel.com for more results as they become available.
First Nickel began trucking ore from its reopened Lockerby mine to Falconbridge’s Strathcona mill on Dec. 7, 2005.
