QUEBEC – Royal Nickel Corp. of Toronto says the technical report for the West Raglan nickel-platinum group project has been filed on SEDAR and on its website. The project is 100% owned by True North Nickel, a private company in which Royal Nickel has a 56% interest.

More than $50 million has been spent exploring the West Raglan property and testing the mineralization. This sulphide deposit is located about 90 km from Glencore‘s Raglan Ni-Cu-PGM mine. No resource estimates have yet been made.

The Frontier zone has been the most promising target so far. Two of the best intersections there are 28.28 metres grading 3.21% Ni, 1.32% Cu, 2.43 g/t Pd and 0.65 g/t Pt; and 10.50 metres grading 278% Ni, 1.21% Cu, 2.78 g/t Pd and 0.80 g/t Pt. Royal Nickel says these intersections are typical of ore from the Raglan mine.
