BRITISH COLUMBIA – Garibaldi Resources of Vancouver has begun drilling its 100% owned E&L nickel project at Nickel Mountain, in the Eskay camp. This is a follow-up to electromagnetic surveys that identified four high priority targets – A, B, C and D – over a 6-km distance.

Work last year confirmed the E&L is a magmatic nickel-copper rich massive sulphide system, the first of its type found in the Eskay Camp. As well as copper and gold, the property has platinum, palladium, cobalt and gold values in a pyrrhotite-pentlandite-chalcopyrite assemblage.

Garibaldi considers E&L to be a potential large tonnage, high grade target within an intrusion defined over a length of 4 km and a width of 1.5 km.
