Victory Nickel Discovers Nickel Mineralization at Minago’s Nose Deposit

Victory Nickel has discovered a formerly strange western expansion of nickel mineralization at the Nose Deposit. The location of this deposit is at Minago nickel project in Manitoba. These mineralization results show up the prospective to add to the life of the mine in the Nose Deposit, including the complete existing Minago resource.

The company has drilled 1,095 m, totaling three holes to examine the western end of the Nose Deposit to outline a western boundary to the shallow nickel mineralization, which can be used by an open pit. All these holes were drilled just outside Nose deposit’s interpreted western border and all the three holes cut several serpentinized ultramafic rock intervals with major nickel mineralization, signifying that the nickel mineralized rock expands out of the west than formerly interpreted.

The Vice-President of exploration of the company, has stated that the presence of these intervals highlight the possibility of development to Minago’s open pittable nickel resource and the potential to expand the mine life of the open pit. The company has encountered total grades of nickel in the intersections, which is at the grades’ upper end found in the Nose Deposit.

TSL Laboratories of Saskatchewan produced all the analytical results by employing HNO3-HCl atomic absorption through the detection limits for nickel between 1 ppm and 5,000 ppm and overlimits HNO3-HF-HClO4-HCL atomic absorption along with the detection confines between 0.01% and 45%.
