Nine Mile Metals Ltd. announce the certified results for VMS mineralization collected from the Wedge mine site in the world-famous Bathurst Mining Camp, New Brunswick, Canada. Discovered in 1956, Cominco operated the mine between 1962 to 1968 producing 1.5 million tonnes of predominantly copper ore. Despite a long exploration and operating history, technical data regarding the mine was not required to be reported to the New Brunswick Department of Energy and Mines, including drill logs, assay certificates, production figures and underground mine plans.
- High Grade Results: 19% Cu, 10.25% Pb, 30%+ Zn, 97 g/t Ag, and 2.78 g/t Au.
- Samples were fine-grained massive VMS (Cu-Pb-Zn) mineralization collected at the Wedge mine site.
- The samples were either Cu rich with minor (Pb/Zn) or (Pb/Zn) rich with minor Cu.
- Most samples consisted of 90% and sulphides and minor quartz / accessory minerals.
- Assay results also indicate credits for both Au and Ag.
- Property re-processed geophysics and AI stage 1 analysis completed.
- Upcoming drill program designs permitted and completed.
|SAMPLE #||(Cu) %||(Pb) %||(Zn) %||(Pb-Zn) %||(Ag) g/t||(Au) g/t|
|W23014||.712||10.25||> 30.0||> 40.25||142||.760|
, “These certified results clearly demonstrate the high-grade Cu potential at the historic Wedge Mine. Locally enriched zones of Pb /Zn were also present as seen with sample W23014 where the Zn assay exceeded the upper analytical range. We look forward to testing the mine at depth and along trend with our new re-processed AI targets on the property. Now that the phase 2 drill program has commenced at Nine Mile Brook again, we will drill the Wedge property and then California Lake after our Nine Mile Brook program concludes. The strength and quality of our portfolio will provide exploration opportunities for increasing shareholder value. We look forward to an extremely busy fall drill season on the (3) priority projects and announcing future drill results.”Patrick J. Cruickshank, MBA, CEO & Director stated
“The sample results show a wide range of copper mineralization, in addition to local enrichment of lead, zinc, silver, and gold. The team looks forward to continued exploration at the Wedge and surrounding targets along trend”stated Gary Lohman, B.Sc., P. Geo., VP Exploration and Director.
