- EV22-12 intersects 14.3 metres grading 1.50% Ni, including 5.4 metres grading 2.96% Ni
- EV22-13 intersects 15.8 metres grading 0.85% Ni, including 5.5 metres grading 1.33% Ni
- Initial results from the Phase 2 Drilling focused on the down plunge potential of the Langmuir W4 Zone
- This High-Grade mineralization is referred to as the “W4 Extension”, between 200 and 500m from surface
TORONTO, ON – EV Nickel Inc. (TSX-V: EVNI) (“EVNi” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide additional exploration drilling results for its Shaw Dome Nickel Project, southeast of Timmins, Ontario. Today the Company reports the assay results of the first two holes completed as part of the Phase 2 Drilling, targeting the down plunge potential of the Langmuir W4 Zone. Each of the holes intersected high-grade nickel sulphide mineralization consistent with the previously identified Langmuir W4 Zone indicating that the high-grade mineralized envelope extends beyond the lower limits of the previously tested areas.
Table 1, below, summarizes the assay results for these holes.
“These significant intercepts highlight the potential to expand the W4 Nickel Zone down the interpreted plunge of the mineralized envelope.” states Paul Davis, EVNi’s Vice President of Exploration. “The continuation of the high-grade mineralization over significant drill core widths, including the 5.4 metres of 2.96% nickel gives me confidence that we will be able to extend the W4 Zone along plunge. The extension of the mineralization is consistent with Kambalda Style Deposits, being associated with a definable feature that concentrates the nickel sulphides into embayment or channel like features that can extend for considerable distances- like the other nickel deposits in the Shaw Dome including the Langmuir #2, Redstone and Hart Deposits”.
For more context on these drill results, join VP, Exploration Paul Davis and CEO Sean Samson for a live digital event tomorrow, July 12th at 12pmET/9amPT. A brief Q&A session will follow the presentation. Please register for this live digital event by clicking here.
As previously disclosed (see Drilling Update News Release from June 27th, 2022) the Company expects continued results from Phase 2 Drilling – W4 Extension, over the coming months. In addition, management conducted an interview related to the Exploration Drilling, outlining Phases 1 through 4 and the plans for a future Technical Report. That interview is posted online and can be viewed by clicking here.
