ONTARIO – Additional drilling by Landore Resources of London, U.K., has allowed the company to report a 43% increase in total resources for the B4-7 nickel-copper-cobalt-PGM deposit on its Junior Lake property. The property lies about 235 km north-northeast of Thunder Bay.

Total tonnage at B4-7 is now 3.4 million indicated tonnes at 1.20% nickel equivalent and 568,000 indicated tonnes at 1.26% NiEq. The resource estimate includes 46,661 tonnes of contained metal.

The recent drill program doubled the open pit component of the B4-7 deposit to 1.8 million tonnes at 1.20% NiEq in the indicated category with 21,264 tonnes of contained metal. It also extended the deposit an extra 200 metres to a strike length of 900 metres and a depth of 550 metres. The deposit remains open along strike and at depth.

Landore has identified a new exploration target down dip from the B4-7 deposit that may have the potential to host 1.5 million to 2.0 million tonnes of sulphide mineralization.
