Tartisan Nickel Corp. (Tartisan) announced that the Company has mobilized two diamond drill rigs to the Company’s flagship Kenbridge Nickel Property to undertake a 10,000-meter diamond drilling program. The drill program is designed to test the on strike and down dip potential for additional nickel sulfide mineralization to enhance the size and grade of the Kenbridge Deposit.
Tartisan Nickel Corp. recently completed a USD 4.48M flow-through share financing which will allow the Company to complete the proposed drill program and commence the additional permitting and geotechnical work necessary to advance the Kenbridge Nickel Project towards a feasibility study. A Preliminary Economic Study is in progress on the current Mineral Resource Estimate which is scheduled to be completed during Q3 2021.
Geological evaluation of the Kenbridge Deposit indicates there is significant potential to expand the Mineral Resource laterally and at depth stepping out from high-grade intersections such as hole KB07-180 (2.95% Ni, 0.82% Cu / 21.5m including 7.2% Ni, 0.67% Cu / 5.5m) and also at depth.
