NICKEL-COPPER: Wolfden drills good grades at Rice Island

MANITOBA – Wolfden Resources Corp. of Thunder Bay, ON, says that drilling at its 100% owned Rice Island nickel-copper property 10 km southeast of Snow Lake is returning good grades. The winter program included 1,445 metres in eight holes.

Two notable holes were cored in the New Lower zone. RI-16-20 returned 2.50 metres of 3.36% Ni, 0.90% Cu and 0.13% Co. RI-16-21 returned 5.45 metres averaging 0.44% Ni, 0.45% Cu and 0.02% Co including 0.25 metres of 2.89% Ni, 1.15% Cu and 0.05% Co and 0.30 metres of 2.08% Ni, 2.23% Cu and 0.10% Co.

In the Main zone RI-16-22 returned 14.70 metres averaging 3.63% Ni, 1.13% Cu and 0.12% Co.

Wolfden said that additional drilling intersected intermittent semi-massive and massive nickel-copper sulphides over a core length of 52.1 metres. It cut through both the New Lower and Main zones. Assays are pending.
