Nine Mile Metals Ltd. stated that it has drilled and validated a VMS system at its debut California Lake Project drill program in New Brunswick’s world-famous Bathurst Mining Camp.
At California Lake, two orientation drill holes were collared to cross the geophysical trend characterized by late-time conductance in reprocessed MegaTEM data as specified by EarthEx Geophysical Solutions Inc. (EarthEx).
The holes also validated the documented geological sequence and structure that hosts the mineralization. After establishing a baseline model, an 89 m hole was drilled straight west at a −45 ° dip, intersecting sulfides between 43.00 and 57.00 m, comprising many zones of large Pb, Cu, Ag, Zn, Au bearing, BMC style VMS mineralization.
We are pleased to confirm a VMS system on our California Lake Project in our stage #1 drill program and add a viable VMS exploration project in Nine Mile’s portfolio. We are in early stages of this drill program, but this further defines that our scientific, leading edge technology exploration process continues to deliver results.

Patrick J. Cruickshank adds, “We will continue to be driven by our unique exploration processes and the next steps will be to measure, photograph, log and cut the samples for our internal XRF screening process to identify the sample sections for certified Lab Analysis to ALS Global Labs, North Vancouver, British Columbia. We look forward to reporting further results from our drill program at California Lake.”
Our unique exploration process continues to be successful and we look forward to completing our current drill program and reporting on additional results.
