Mink Ventures Corporation (TSXV: MINK) has commenced an initial 500m drill programme on the A Zone at its Warren Copper Nickel Project. The Warren property covers 1,010ha of land, located in Whitesides Township, approximately 35km west of Timmins, Ontario.
To date, the Warren patents host three known zones with copper, nickel, and cobalt mineralization; these have been designated A, B, and C. Two historical bulk samples were completed on the Warren patents; the first bulk sample returned 0.21% Cu, 0.96% Ni, 0.11% Co and 0.10% Zn, and a second bulk sample returned 2.83% Cu, 0.58% Ni, 0.10 Co and 0.13 Zn. The combined A-B zones and the C zone have projected strike lengths of 800m and 1,000m of strike length respectively from geophysical data.
The “A” Zone was selected as a high-priority target for drill testing because of an extensive geological review of data, a field examination, and a confirmation sampling programme conducted this past summer by company geologists.
“We are excited to begin drill testing these underexplored patented mining claims following their recent acquisition in July 2023. With the geology, geophysics, and the extensive surface mineralization observed, we think there is significant opportunity for new discoveries to be made…,” said Mink CEO Natasha Dixon.
“Mink’s work commitment to earn a 100% interest in the patents is C$300,000. We will make a significant dent in that obligation with this initial drill programme which is expected to run for about two weeks.”
The first phase of drilling will consist of a series of short holes on the A Zone to determine the extent of the mineralization down plunge, down dip and along strike prior to evaluating the other mineralized zones and numerous untested priority geophysical targets.
