NICKEL-COPPER: Wallbridge cuts long and strong grades at Parkin property



ONTARIO – Toronto-based Wallbridge Mining Company is enjoying long and strong results from the current 12,000-metre drill program at its Parking exploration project in Sudbury. Hole WMP-170 intersected 24.25 metres of 1.22% Ni, 1.50% Cu, 0.81 g/t Pt, 0.96 g/t Pd, and 0.38 g/t Au at a shallow depth of 35 to 60 metres.

The Parkin project is a joint venture of Wallbridge (50%) and Champion Bear Resources. The project gets its name because it overlies the Parkin Offset Dyke.

Wallbridge president and CEO said in a release that after more successful drilling, bulk sampling at Parkin may be possible in the near term.

“Drill hole WMP-170 intersected significantly thicker mineralization than was previously modelled,” said VP exploration Joshua Bailey. “This expands higher grade portions of the historic resource and demonstrates the potential for significant near surface tonnage.”

The Parkin property has a 9.4 km strike length that includes the past producing Milnet mine, the Milnet 1500 zone, and a historic resource near the area currently being drilled.
