Nuinsco Reports 495m Critical Elements & Phosphate Mineralization Intersection: Longest reported to date at Prairie Lake

24.11.2021  |  The Newswire
Toronto, November 24, 2021 - Nuinsco Resources Ltd. ("Nuinsco" or the "Company") (CNSX:NWI.CN) (OTC:NWIFF) today announced that the infill drill core sampling program at its 100%-owned Prairie Lake project near Terrace Bay, Ontario ("Prairie Lake" or the "Project") has produced an intersection of 495m (starting from 2.0m downhole) of continuous critical elements and phosphate mineralization in diamond drill hole NP0810.

The intersection of rare earth elements, niobium, tantalum, and phosphate mineralization in DDH NP0810 is notable for several reasons: mineralization extends to 480m vertically, amongst the deepest intersections obtained on the Project; the mineralization is continuous from surface to the end of the drill hole; grade of mineralization is consistent with mineralization obtained from drill holes up to one kilometre away; the drill hole is located north of the Southwest Area ("SW Area") where a succession of 100m-plus drill intersections have been reported recently by the Company; several of the critical elements occurring within the intersection are of sufficient grade to be of potential economic interest. The results from NP0810 plainly demonstrate the extensive continuity of mineralization throughout the Prairie Lake complex rocks, both laterally and to depth.

"Drill hole NP0810 was drilled to test Jim's Showing, near the centre of the Prairie Lake complex (see map below), and is approximately 500m north of the centre of the SW Area where most of the sampling has been conducted this year," said Paul Jones, Nuinsco's CEO. "The analytical results from NP0810 reinforces our understanding of the extensive endowment of Critical Elements and phosphate mineralization in the Prairie Lake complex rocks and the implications for economic potential. Prairie Lake is a vast repository of these Critical Elements of economic interest with superb logistical attributes. As conversion of the world's economies to increased electrification accelerates demand and prices for these Critical Elements are forecast to increase substantially; a process that has seen the price of neodymium (neodymium oxide 99.0% purity) alone increase from circa US$60/kg to circa $140/kg between August 2020 and the present (source: kitco.com)."

Analytical results from the 495 m of continuous mineralization (from 2-497m) of niobium (Nb), tantalum (Ta), phosphate (P2O5), and rare earth elements (REE) including lanthanum (La), cerium (Ce), samarium (Sm), neodymium (Nd), praseodymium (Pr), yttrium (Y), and scandium (Sc) are tabulated below. DDH NP0810 was collared to evaluate the mineralization at Jim's Showing, located near the centre of the Prairie Lake complex and treated as a distinct mineralized domain within the Prairie Lake Exploration Target (see "Prairie Lake ET" table below).

The mineralization of economic interest contained within the Prairie Lake intrusion occurs throughout the surface exposure of the Prairie Lake complex where sampled and extends to unknown depths below the deepest drilling yet conducted (circa 525m vertically). There is no indication that mineralization diminishes with depth and the analytical results from DDH NP1003 demonstrate the widespread and continuous mineralization hosted by the rocks within the complex. The Prairie Lake complex hosts a suite of elements of economic interest identified as Critical Elements defined under the Canadian Minerals and Metals Plan within a very large domain of mineralized rock that is extremely favourably located from a logistical perspective with rail, road, shipping, and power infrastructure already established. Demand for many of the elements found at Prairie Lake is projected to substantially increase and secure supply chains in mining-friendly regions are currently being sought.

The Project consists of 46 mineral claims covering an area of ~630 ha. Prairie Lake is superbly located, easily accessed by an all-weather road from the TransCanada Highway located 28 km to the south. The ET is defined by 59 diamond drill holes.

All samples were analysed by Activation Laboratories (ActLabs) in Ancaster, Ontario. Samples were analysed for a whole rock and trace element ICP analytical package as well as for niobium, tantalum, and zirconium oxides using a fusion XRF method. An internal Quality Control Quality Assurance (QAQC) program was implemented with four QAQC samples (blanks and reference standards) added into the sampling stream.

2 A full description of methodology used to estimate the Prairie Lake project Exploration Target is contained in the Technical Report dated 30 November 2018 prepared by P&E Mining Consultants Inc. that is filed on SEDAR. The potential quantity and grade of the ET is conceptual in nature and there has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource. It is uncertain if further exploration will result in the discovery of a mineral resource. There is no National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects preliminary economic assessment in respect of the Prairie Lake ET.

Laura Giroux, P.Geo, Chief Geologist, acts as Nuinsco's Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101. Ms. Giroux has reviewed and approved the technical contents of this news release.
