Hole LL201902 intersected 37 metres at 1.71% nickel, 0.68% copper and 0.05% cobalt from 10 metres including 21.05 metres at 2.47% nickel, 0.66% copper and 0.07% cobalt.
Hole LL2019-01 intersected 7 metres at 0.62% nickel, 0.37% copper and 0.02% cobalt west of the main zone being targeted by LL2019-02.
A total of seven holes were completed for about 1,122 metres of diamond core drilling.
Further results from these holes and the remaining holes in the program will be released in due course.
Drill hole location plan over the satellite image
The company’s recent mining studies at Lynn Lake have centred on nickel deposits at depths of more than 400 metres and has highlighted the potential to define additional resources closer to the surface adjacent to Lynn Lake’s historically mined areas.
Corazon's drilling predominantly targeted the A and E orebody areas with several other near-surface deposits within the large mining centre yet to be considered for drill testing.
Near-surface expressions tested
Lynn Lake's style of mineralisation is typical of mafic/ultramafic intrusive magmatic sulphide systems hosting sulphides varying in concentrations from massive to weakly disseminated.
This latest phase of drilling tested near-surface expressions of mined areas that operated continuously for 24 years at an average grade of 1.02% nickel and 0.54% copper.
The A orebody was mined underground between 1953 and 1965, producing 4.8 million tonnes at 1.07% nickel and 0.55% copper.
While the massive sulphide crown-pillar was mined to surface, it was expected that ‘good’ mineralisation existed where historical infrastructure restricted surface mining.
Samples for all drilling with visible sulphides have been submitted for analysis, with results expected to be returned by the end of January 2020.
