Garibaldi drilling find expands Discovery zone

Global Mining Review,

Garibaldi Resources (Garibaldi) has announced that assay results for an additional two drill holes at Nickel Mountain have expanded the Discovery zone to the northwest and southeast.

The Golden Triangle's first magmatic Nickel sulfide system, featuring the Discovery, Central and Northwest zones,  remains open in all directions and drilling continues as Garibaldi crews push further into the fall season than last year.

Dr. Peter Lightfoot, Technical Advisor for Garibaldi, commented: "When compared to magmatic nickel sulphide deposits around the world, massive sulfides at Nickel Mountain have unusually high grades of nickel, copper, cobalt and precious metals.

"The Discovery zone massive sulfides in the footwall at E&L form a continuous wide sheet of mineralisation that appears, despite structural modification, to have been injected as a significant pulse of primary magmatic sulfide," Dr. Lightfoot concluded.

Samples were prepared by crushing the entire sample to 75% passing 2 mm, riffle splitting 250 g and pulverising the split to better than 85% passing 75 μm. Gold, Platinum and Palladium were analysed using a 30 g fire assay and ICP-AES. Total sulfur and total carbon were analysed using a Leco method. Nickel, copper, cobalt, silver and base metals were analysed by sodium peroxide fusion and ICP-MS.

The performance on the blind standards, blanks and duplicates achieved high levels of accuracy and reproducibility and has been verified by Everett Makela, a Qualified Person as defined by NI-43-101.
