ONTARIO FIRST NICKEL of Toronto continues to enjoy success as it drills the Morgan-Lumsden property on the North Range of the Sudbury Basin. Core recovered from recent drilling assayed 2.03% Ni and 0.26% Cu over 5.20 m. First Nickel has an option to earn a 50% interest in the Morgan-Lumsden project from Xstrata, whose Strathcona mill is 12 km to the west.
The sulphides intersected by this hole are interpreted by Xstrata as hosted in a broad zone of Sudbury Breccia 50 m below the Sudbury Igneous Complex contact.
Although assays are not available, First Nickel says the geologic features indicate further opportunity for footwall mineralization on the property. These features include a significant proportion of Sudbury Breccia intersected in the footwall, below the massive sulphide intercept, with local and scattered disseminated, blebby and fracture controlled chalcopyrite mineralization.
