ONTARIO – Wallbridge Mining Company of Toronto reports that the drilling program has been accelerated with the addition of a second drill at the Wisner PGM-nickel-copper project in the Sudbury Basin.

The 2014 program is focused on the North Range and Sudbury Camp joint ventures. Partner Lonmin plc is supplying the funds – over $5.1 million this year – and Wallbridge is the operator. The Wisner property is part of the North Range venture.

Wallbridge reported that all nine drill holes in the Twisted Wrench target intersected weak copper mineralization. More copper was cut at the high grade copper-PGM South zone, and anomalous copper-PGM values were cut at the new Rusty Blade target area. Narrow, high grade copper-precious metals veins were traced east of the Broken Hammer pit, and prospecting identified a new copper occurrence that outcrops at the new Toothless Saw target.

One drill is testing the Twisted Wrench target and the second is working near the South zone.
