said July 6that exploration activities including drilling are underway at its nickel project inGreenland, with relevant work contracts already awarded and equipment and crewsmobilized to site in late June.
The 2016 exploration program atthe project will comprise about 10,000 meters of diamond drilling, surface and boreholegeophysics, mapping, sampling, prospecting, structural geological studies and3D modeling.
At the prospect-scale, thecompany will integrate structural studies, detailed mapping and 3D modelingwith borehole and surface geophysical data to enhance drill hole targeting. Andat the regional-scale, satellite imagery and lithogeochemical data will beintegrated with airborne and surface geophysical data to prioritize explorationtargets for potential drill testing.
For this year, North AmericanNickel aims to carry out follow-up drilling at multiple mineralized targets todetermine if one or more zones have the potential to warrant delineationdrilling. Concurrently, the company will also continue the systematicexploration of the district-scale Maniitsoq property and other corporate socialresponsibility and infrastructure-related activities.
