Further infill and extension drilling on the VW Zone nickel discovery at Ketchikan Lake, toward the southeastern end of the Junior Lake property, Ontario Canada, has consistently intersected wide intervals of sulphide mineralization with assay results continuing to return grades in excess of 1% nickel.
The VW Zone has now been confirmed with drilling along 300 metres of strike length with the mineralized horizons showing continuity and evidence that nickel grades are improving to the west. The zone remains open to the east, west and at depth.
The Junior Lake properties are located in the province of Ontario, approximately 235 kilometres north-northeast of Thunder Bay and are situated within the Caribou-O-Sullivan Greenstone Belt in the Wabigoon Subprovince.
The current infill, extension and exploration drilling campaign at Junior Lake commenced in early May. To date, 36 holes (0406-48 to 81, 50 twin, 52A) for a total of 7,827 metres of NQ sized diamond core, have been completed, consisting of 26 holes for 5,931 metres on the VW Zone and 10 holes (406-61 to 70) for 1,992 metres on exploration targets. Assays are pending for 10 holes on the VW Zone and for the exploration drilling.
Drilling is continuing, with a further 7 holes to complete of the current infill and extension programme. The drilling team will then relocate to the nearby B4-7 Zone to drill 4 infill holes and 2 metallurgical holes.
All drill core was photographed prior to being cut for assaying. Samples were analyzed at Accurassay Laboratories (ISO/IEC 17025), Thunder Bay, Ontario, by geochemical analysis with atomic absorption finish (Ni). All samples reporting results of 1% nickel or higher were re-analysed by the assay method with atomic absorption finish. Check assays, standards and laboratory duplicates were performed on a systematic basis at Accurassay Laboratories. ALS Chemex Laboratory in Vancouver, BC also completed systematic checks. Core is stored at site and in Landore’s facilities in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Rejects are stored at Accurassay Laboratories and in Landore’s facilities in Thunder Bay.
Metallurgical Testing-NI 43-101 resource statement.
SGS Lakefield Research Limited of Lakefield, Ontario, is currently carrying out metallurgical testing of the VW Zone Nickel ore. On completion of the drilling and metallurgical testing an independent consultant will prepare a NI 43-101 compliant technical report. It is anticipated that the report will be completed by year end.
Further releases will be made as drilling continues.
James Garber, (BSc. Hons. Geology, member of APGO) a Director of Landore Resources Ltd and a qualified person as defined in National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed and verified all scientific or technical mining disclosure contained in this press release.
