FORT FRANCIS, Ontario Toronto-based NUINSCO RESOURCES has confirmed high nickel/copper/PGM and precious metal values from the 32 zone on its Rainy River property. The best result was a 9.65-metre intersection grading 3.0% Ni, 2.69% Cu, 1.60 g/t Au, 4.22 g/t Pt, 11.39 g/t Pd, and 25.66 g/t Ag.
Calling the zone "very interesting," Nuinsco president Warren Holmes said more drilling is planned to expand the zone.
Nuinsco has been drilling at Rainy River since 1995. Two mineralized zones have been found, the large low-grade 17 gold zone and the small high-grade 34 nickel zone. A diagram of the zones and drillholes is available at www.nuinsco.ca.
