Nickel North Exploration Releases Assay Results from Hawk Ridge Validate Historical Records
Nickel North Exploration Corp. (NNX.V) today released the results of the final phase of its 2012 exploration program on the Company's 100% controlled Hawk Ridge Ni-Cu-PGE Project in northern Quebec. These results are based on the re- sampling and detailed analysis of 988 samples from 9 holes totalling 956 meters of historic drill core that was stored at Hawk Ridge in 1996-97 by the previous operator.
The new assays also recorded significant values of platinum group elements and gold (PGE+Au) in all 9 holes, which were not previously tested for. Additionally, modern sampling protocols and multi- element analysis has led to the detection of additional nickel and copper mineralization not previously recognized and has in some cases expanded the mineralized intersections by up to 10 metres (DH 96-55 returning 0.43 % Cu and 0.18% Ni over 74 meters).
