Celtic Minerals sample nickel boulders

Diamond drilling by Celtic Minerals Ltd continues on the Kingurutik River claim block in the Voisey’s Bay nickel district, northern Labrador, Canada. Drilling will concentrate on the Kingurutik River block before shifting to the Black Duck project later this summer. Celtic’s initial focus was to locate the source of fairly numerous, high grade nickel, platinum, and palladium boulders in the West Margin area of the Kingurutik property. Samples from the site contain up to 1.4% Ni, 0.2% Cu, and 0.7ppm Pt and 2.1ppm Pd. Angular boulders of pyroxenite and peridotite were recently analysed by Celtic and the high nickel contents of the well mineralized boulders were confirmed. Celtic intends to complete a fence of five diamond drill holes across the boulder train, which is co-incident with a 900m long, northwest trending, and sinuous magnetic anomaly. The Kingurutik project area totals 3598 claims or 899.5sq/km, and the Black Duck project area totals 1364 claims or 341sq/km.
