Talon intersects highest nickel grades at Tamarack
23 June 2020
Talon Metals Corp. has announced that the Company has received assays from another drill hole from its winter 2020 exploration program at the Tamarack Nickel-Copper-Cobalt project, located in Minnesota, USA. This drill hole represents the highest nickel and copper grades intersected to date during the Company’s winter 2020 exploration program.
Drill hole 12TK0153C intersected 7.14 meters (23.4 feet) of mixed and massive sulphides grading 8.31% Ni, 3.26% Cu, 0.16% Co, 0.65 g/t Pd, 0.84 g/t Pt and 0.43 g/t Au (10.15% NiEq1 or 27.06% CuEq2), starting at 578.45 meters.
“The winter 2020 exploration program at Tamarack continues to deliver outstanding results,” said Henri van Rooyen, CEO of Talon. “Of note, the 9.65% Ni that we just intercepted in the resource area is similar to the 9.95% Ni previously intercepted approximately 3 km north of our resource area, and the 9.3% nickel intercepted approximately 1.6 km north-east of our resource area.”
Nickel enhances important properties of stainless steel, including weldability and formability, while also increasing corrosion resistance.
Talon is a TSX-listed base metals company in a joint venture with Rio Tinto on the high-grade Tamarack Nickel-Copper-Cobalt Project located in Minnesota, USA, comprised of the Tamarack North Project and the Tamarack South Project.
