NICKEL-COPPER-PGM: Wallbridge expands shallow mineralization at Parkin



ONTARIO – Wallbridge Mining Co. released the results from the 13 drill holes on its Parkin properties in Sudbury. Nine of the holes intersected significant nickel-copper-PGM mineralization, and six of the holes intersected semi-massive to massive sulphides.

Notable assays from the holes include:

  • 0.93% Ni, 1.59% Cu, 1.01 g/t Pt, 0.59 g/t Pd, and 0.21 g/t Au over 3.50 metres, and
  • 2.10% Ni, 0.48% Cu, 0.47 g/t Pt, 0.40 g/t Pd, and 0.04 g/t Au over 3.55 metres.

The 13 holes were drilled to follow up on borehole geophysics done in 2015 below the historic surface resource. The mineralized intersections were made above 400 metres depth. Results from four holes point toward a new mineralized zone with a strike length of 140 metres immediately northeast of the historic resource. Four other holes returned “significant” nickel-copper-PGM results within the Parkin Offset dyke.

Drilling is continuing with the objective of defining enough mineralization to justify an updated resource estimate and bulk sample program.
