VANCOUVER, Canada (March 11, 2022) – MAX Power Mining Corp. (CSE: MAXX) (“MAX Power” or the “Company”) has commenced diamond drilling at its Nicobat Property (“Nicobat” or the “Property”) in northwest Ontario. The Company is targeting the potential for nickel-cobalt-platinum group metals (“PGM”) massive sulphide bodies in Potts Township. MAX Power aims to determine if such bodies could be the source of geophysical conductors.
Mr. Rav Mlait, President and CEO of MAX Power, commented: “Timing for the drilling of Nicobat couldn’t be better given the very sharp move in nickel prices and the anticipation of a continued strong metals market. At the same time, as a new company, we continue to evaluate project opportunities across a broad range of commodity sectors as the resource bull market intensifies.”
Nicobat is situated about 20 km southeast of New Gold’s Rainy River gold mine in the heart of an under-explored part of Northern Ontario’s Rainy River Greenstone Belt. This area is considered prospective for nickel-cobalt-PGM’s due to the presence of a major strike-slip fault conducive to the emplacement of mafic to ultramafic intrusions.
In 2018, Crystal Lake Mining (now Enduro Metals) completed an airborne magnetic-electromagnetic survey at Nicobat. The purpose of the survey was to delineate magnetic and coincident electromagnetic anomalies which could be caused by massive sulphide mineralization. Multiple conductors were identified and conductors for the two highest-ranked anomalies were modelled by Condor Consulting Inc. of Denver, Colorado, to determine their depth and geometry for drill hole targeting. The focus of the March 2022 reconnaissance drill program will be to test the highest priority conductive responses.
MAX Power’s geological consultants, Ronacher McKenzie Geoscience of Sudbury, Ontario is overseeing the drill program.
