Rockland Minerals Extends Stacked Cu-Ni-PGE Mineralization at Retty Lake Property

Rockland Minerals has reported that the hole 849-10 is an extension of the strong anomalous mineralization of Cu-Ni-PGE, which was encountered in this summer’s drill campaign conducted at the Retty Lake Cu-Ni-PGE property, Québec.

The company drilled the 849-9 and 849-10 holes 200 m away from the Berry Lake region that is immediately contiguous to a huge claim block. These holes cut a wide anomalous Cu-Ni-PGE zone, whose breadth is more than 20 m in the upper peridotite sill. Rockland encountered 0.50% nickel, 0.19% copper, and 0.29 g/t palladium-platinum over 4.4 m in the hole 849-10. The drill program has validated the occurrence of "stacked" mineralization of Cu-Ni-PGE in several horizons, which is identical to the fresh discoveries in the south Raglan Belt. The company has obtained all the drill core assays from the project.

The Retty Lake drilling program defined many highly anomalous Cu-Ni-PGE mineralization zones in the middle peridotite sill. The fresh mineralization identified at Nancy Lake, Starr Lake and Lost Lake has presented the follow-up targets, which will be offset through the step-out drill campaign. The company’s drill program at the project in the upper peridotite sill is positive, and has authenticated the mineralization having "stacked" nature in the Retty Lake campor Blue Lake. The two drill holes located in the middle sill unit showed "hybrid" texture, wherein the peridotite magma integrated the black shale country rock at a dyke- edge. The company has not formerly defined the Dyke structures at Blue Lake or Retty Lake. These structures are part of the new model of Cu-Ni-PGE mineralization, which has peridotite, in the south Raglan belt.
