DYNATEC and FNX MINING are intersecting more significant zones at their Norman joint venture property near Sudbury, Ont. The best overall hole drilled so far in the zone returned 526.2 ft of 2.0% Cu and 2.5 g/t total precious metals (TPM). That included 134.9 ft grading 5.1% Cu with 4.7 g/t TPM and 10.0 ft of 5.3% Cu with 6.4 g/t TPM. Nickel values are also present.
Two deposits, North and 2000, have been identified on the Norman property. The most recent results come from the 2000 deposit, which is known over an area of at least 600 by 800 ft. It is open both up- and down-plunge and dip. Mineralization occurs as massive sulphide and stringer sulphide veins consisting mainly of chalcopyrite, pentlandite and millerite.
The Sudbury joint venture of FNX (75%) and Dynatec (25% and operator) holds several properties, some of which are past producers. The partners are spending $14 million on exploration and development on their holdings. Complete information on the joint venture can be found at the eye-catching web site www.fnxmining.com
