MANITOBA — Toronto-based Crowflight Minerals has recovered grades as high as 5.24% Ni during exploratory drilling from the surface ramp between the 450 and 500 levels at its new Bucko Lake mine in the Thompson Nickel Belt. The mine was declared in commercial production in June 2009.
The mineralization encountered during drilling from the ramp is a new, high-grade zone accessible from current development on the 500 level (150 metres). The best intercepts from this zone include 8.2 metres grading 5.24% Ni in hole BUD-120 and 12.0 metres grading 3.56% Ni in hole BUD-121.
Crowflight is preparing to mine high-grade stopes on the 1000 level (300 metres) later this month. Results from drilling in the deeper area are posted at www.Crowflight.com.
