NICKEL-COPPER: Garibaldi drills 8.3% Ni and 4.1% Cu over 10 metres at Nickel Mountain

BRITISH COLUMBIA – If there are bonanza grades of nickel and copper, Garibaldi Resources of Vancouver has found them. It has drilled 8.3% nickel and 4.1% copper over 10.3 metres at its Nickel Mountain discovery 17 km southwest of Eskay Creek.

Besides the high nickel and copper grades, hole EL-17-10 returned 0.19% cobalt, 4.3 /t palladium, 1.9 g/t platinum, 1.1 g/t gold, and 10.2 g/t silver.

Garibaldi said that after review of the bore hole electromagnetic data, it believes there  are two strong conductive ones, one below hole EL-17-14 and the other south of the historic Northwest zone. It is interpreting this as a potential massive sulphide body over a broad area at depth.

The company is preparing this  year’s exploration campaign to further assess potential targets and get the drills turning.
