ONTARIO – Noront Resources of Toronto continues to drill its McFaulds Lake property in the James Bay Lowlands with good results. The latest assays were 1.02% Ni, 0.23$ Cu, 0.31 g/t Pt and 1.47 g/t Pd over 10.3 metres and 0.89% Ni, 0.34% Cu, 0.39 g/t Pt and 2.04 g/t Pd over 12.2 metres.
Noront noted that the recent winter drill program intersected nickel sulphide mineralization at AT2 that previous airborne geophysical surveys missed. Drilling at AT12 cut long intervals averaging from 0.2 to 0.7% Ni within an ultramafic intrusive 100 metres wide and 1,200 along strike to approximately 400 metres below surface.
Additional assays are available at NorontResources.com in the news release dated July 9, 2012.
