Inomin starts ground survey at Lynx nickel property

Inomin Mines Inc. has reported a ground magnetic survey is underway at MINE’s Lynx nickel property in south-central British Columbia.

The survey comprises 228 line-km across the Bear and Skulow zones, two large 2 x 3 km sulfide nickel targets (Figure 1).

Magnetics surveys in the company’s Beaver block located 11 km north of Lynx of the Beaver-Lynx project have proven very effective at delineating magnetite-serpentinite rocks hosting nickel-cobalt mineralisation. At Beaver, airborne and ground magnetic surveys have identified five magnetite-serpentinite zones with a cumulative strike length of approximately 10 km. Historic drilling at these zones intersected strongly magnetic shallow-dipping serpentinites hosting nickel mineralisation in sulfide form.

The Lynx area is geologically similar to Beaver with even larger prospective targets areas. RGS (regional stream sediment) data collected by the Province of British Columbia illustrates the existence of a large 10 x 5 km nickel anomaly at Lynx. An airborne magnetics survey delineated an 8 km-wide ring-like magnetic anomaly and several strong magnetic anomalies – all greater than 2 km in length.

Given the positive drill results related to areas of significant magnetite-rich serpentinite rocks in the Beaver property, Lynx displays potential to host multiple zones of large, disseminated, sulfide nickel. Cobalt occurs with nickel mineralisation in the Beaver property.

A 2020 National Instrument 43-101 technical report on the Beaver-Lynx sulfide nickel project notes that the Beaver property hosts large volumes of nickel and cobalt mineralisation amendable to conventional floatation extraction techniques.
