PORT-CARTIER, Que. The results of a five-hole, 1,250-m drill program at the B20 property have been made public by MARUM RESOURCES and RESSOURCES APPALACHES. The holes confirmed the existence of thick sequences of massive sulphides occurring at and near the surface.
These results plus the results of earlier drill programs have identified a low-grade, nickel-copper system from surface to a vertical depth of at least 150 m and measuring 500 m by 500 m. The system is characterized by several zones over 20 m thick that are possibly related to a 60-m-thick zone defined by earlier drilling. The massive sulphide zone lying at 150 m extends into EM anomalies that will be tested during the next drill program.
Overall, the massive sulphide zone intercepts vary between 0.25-0.75% Ni and 0.20-0.47% Cu. One of the recent holes, F03-04, assayed 0.22% Ni and 0.19% Cu over 43.75 m, including a 9.1-m section that graded 0.4% Ni and 0.39% Cu.
The web sites of Marum and Appalaches (www.marumresources.com and www.ressourcesappalaches.com, respectively) are under construction. More information about the B20 property is available from Arness Cordick at 604-602-1440.
