Inomin Mines Inc. has reported significant new discoveries of nickel, magnesium, and chromium at its Beaver nickel-cobalt property in south-central, British Columbia.
Drill-hole B21-02 intersected 252.1 m grading 20.6% magnesium, 0.16% nickel, and 0.33% chromium. B21-02 is the longest mineralised hole ever drilled at Beaver, and the first-ever drilling in the Spur zone, one of five large mineralised areas at the property. Hole B21-01 at Spur also made another first, discovering near-surface silver and copper, intersecting 649 g/t silver and 0.29% copper over 3 m, before the hole was terminated due to difficult ground drilling conditions. All holes ended in mineralisation leaving the discoveries open to extension at depth.
The 2021 drilling program, consisting of five holes (716 m), successfully tested mineralisation over a strike length of 5.7 km. Drilling confirmed the presence of significant, near-surface, polymetallic mineralisation over the tested strike length, and discovered mineralisation in untested areas of the property. Drilling in the Spur and North Lobe zones, the focus of the 2021 drilling, intersected long intervals of favourable mineralisation up to 252 m in thickness, open to expansion in all directions. All drillholes ended in mineralisation.
John Gomez, President of MINE, comments:
“Our initial drilling program demonstrates Beaver’s potential for hosting large volumes of nickel, as well as magnesium and chromium – all critical metals. Finding significant magnesium and chromium in new areas of the property is a tremendous discovery that adds considerable more value to the project.”
