GARIBALDI COMMENCES 2018 EXPLORATION CAMPAIGN AT NICKEL MOUNTAIN
Garibaldi Resources Corp.'s crews have mobilized to immediately launch extensive helicopter-borne versatile time-doman electromagnetic (VTEM) and magnetics surveys at the company's Nickel Mountain project and surrounding claims in the Eskay camp.
Geotech's surveys will cover up to approximately 1,650 line kilometres of Garibaldi's claim group, nearly triple the size of the 2017 program that returned multiple high-priority conductors including the one that led to the discovery of nickel-copper-rich massive sulphides east of the historic E&L deposit at Nickel Mountain.
Steve Regoci, Garibaldi's president and chief executive officer, commented: "Given the tremendous success with geophysics at Nickel Mountain in 2017, as demonstrated by compelling drilling results and a unique discovery in this camp, we're excited by what we may learn from this expanded program covering the entire trend.
"We are several months ahead of last year's exploration schedule as we prepare to follow up on our last hole (EL-17-14) highlighted by a 16.75-metre massive sulphide interval grading 8.3 per cent nickel and 4.2 per cent copper, along with PGE, gold, silver and cobalt credits," Mr. Regoci concluded (see Dec. 8, 2017, news release).
To accelerate the resumption of drilling, and to extend the drilling season as long as possible, Garibaldi is constructing upgraded prefab survival shacks for crews to utilize at the drill site while other cost-effective strategies are in the final planning stages.
