Canadian Critical Minerals (TSXV: CCMI; OTCQB: RIINF) announced assays from the first two drill holes of a 2,600-metre program near the former Thierry mine near Pickle Lake, Ont. Both holes intersected continuous sulphide mineralization from surface to more than 240 metres downhole. The holes were assayed for copper, nickel, palladium, and platinum.
Early highlights of the July 2023 program are as follows:
The 2023 drill program focused on expanding the K1-1 deposit located about 3 km east of the past-producing Thierry mine. The deposit has a current inferred resource of 53.6 million tonnes grading 0.38% copper, 1.10% nickel, 1.7 g/t silver, 0.03 g/t gold, 0.05 g/t platinum, and 0.14 g/t palladium.
The Thierry underground copper mine was active from 1976 to 1982.
