Nine Mile Metals Announces Certified Assays of 1.37% Copper, 0.21% Lead, 0.29% Zinc, 0.36 g/t Gold, and 19.02 g/t Silver over 11.10 Meters, in Drill Hole WD-24-01, Including 2.59% Copper, 39.09 g/t Silver, and 0.69 g/t Gold over 5.18 Meters at the Wedge Mine Project

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - April 3, 2024) - Nine Mile Metals Ltd. (CSE: NINE) (OTCQB: VMSXF) (FSE: KQ9) (the "Company" or "Nine Mile") is pleased to announce it has received certified assays for drill hole WD-24-01 at the Wedge Mine Project, situated in the renowned Bathurst Mining Camp (BMC) in New Brunswick.

WD-24-01 HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Drill hole WD-24-01 was collared on the southern flank of the Wedge Mine deposit within the footwall sediments and drilled at an azimuth of 330 degrees and a dip of -45 degrees to a total depth of 165 meters.
  • The drill hole successfully intersected three (3) Zones of visual sulphide mineralization: 26.76 - 53.16 meters, 69.00 - 82.00 meters, and 139.00 - 142.00 meters.
  • The main copper zone intersected 11.10 meters (32.55 - 43.65 meters) assaying 1.37% Cu, 0.21% Pb, 0.29% Zn, 19.02 g/t Ag, and 0.36 g/t Au (refer to Table 1). This includes:
    • 8.18 meters of pyritic VMS assaying 1.83% Cu, 0.28% Pb, 0.38% Zn, 25.24 g/t Ag, and 0.46 g/t Au.
    • 5.18 meters of pyritic VMS assaying 2.59% Cu, 0.43% Pb, 0.48% Zn, 39.09 g/t Ag, and 0.69 g/t Au.
  • The copper equivalent for the main upper zone (26.76 - 53.16 meters) is 0.92% Cu over 26.40 meters.
  • Gold and silver mineralization coincides with the copper-rich VMS.
