07.09.2018  |  FSCwire
Vancouver - Fort St. James Nickel Corp. (TSX.v: FTJ ) (“FTJ” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the completion of the 2018 summer work program and receipt of rock and till sample analytical results for the KM 26 Nickel property northwest of Fort Saint James, central  British Columbia. Highlights of the sampling included three rock samples returning 2030 ppm nickel (0.203% Ni), 2020 ppm nickel (0.202% Ni) and 482 ppm vanadium (860 ppm or 0.086% V2O5). The Company intersected nickel mineralization on the property during 2011 diamond drilling including intersections of 0.21% nickel over 167 meter core length and 0.20% nickel over 157.5 meter core length in two separate holes.

“We are encouraged by these latest results and will continue to advance the KM 26 project. However, with our focus now being Eastern Canada, we are actively seeking parties whom may be interested in a joint venture opportunity.” States Barry Brown president

The KM 26 property consists of 21 mineral claims covering a total of 5177.55 hectares of geologically prospective ground in the Omineca mining division.

The 2018 work program consisted of a rock sampling and deep auger hole till sampling. The auger till sampling program was designed to identify nickel anomalies between the 2011 diamond drill holes and / or near nickel bearing boulders. The rock sampling was conducted in areas of reported nickel bearing boulders and area of recent logging activities.

One highlight of the 2018 rock sampling program is a sample from two large sub-angular to angular boulders or possible subcrop of serpentinite, returning 2030 ppm nickel (0.203% Ni). Company management are not aware of any reported mineralization in this specific location. The showing is located in an area of recent logging activity. Other rock sample highlights included a serpentinite boulder sample returning 2020 ppm nickel (0.202% Ni) and a siltstone subcrop sample returning 1.21% titanium, 482 ppm vanadium (860 ppm or 0.086% V2O5) and 59 ppm scandium.

The rock and till samples were analysed at the ALS Minerals facility in North Vancouver. The rock samples were analyzed for gold by Fire Assay - AA and for 48 elements by ICP-MS. The till samples were analyzed for 53 elements by Aqua Regia super trace ICP-MS.

Nickel mineralization was intersected by the Company on the property during a 2011 diamond drilling program with nickel mineralization hosted in serpentinized ultramafic rock (News Release of January 31, 2012). Six drill holes were completed during the 2011 program, all intersecting nickel mineralization. Drill intersections include (core length in meters):

  • K-11-1:                        34.0 - 72.0m (38.0m):             0.22% Ni
  • K-11-1b:                      34.5 - 88.0m (53.5m):             0.21% Ni
  • K-11-2:                        33.0 - 200.0m (167.0m):         0.21% Ni
  • K-11-4:                        13.5 - 171.0m (157.5m):         0.20% Ni

The Companies main objective is to continue focusing is on its exploration activities in eastern Canada at the Porcupine base metal - precious metal - rare earth element (REE) property in central New Brunswick.
