Renforth Resources Inc. (CSE: RFR | OTCQB: RFHRF | FSE: 9RR) has shared a successful update on recent nickel prospecting on its McCart Property in Ontario, Canada and has hit unexpected, mineralized occurrences at the very end of its last drill hole on Victoria.
“Ending our programme with bonus mineralization at the end of the hole is of course exciting, but also illustrates that we have not yet defined what Victoria is, it keeps getting better,” commented Nicole Brewster, president and CEO of Renforth.
“We look forward to our assays coming back in the new year and planning our next work on this exciting, large scale mineralized property that keeps on growing. The potential we see on our 100% owned, 20km long Victoria mineralized structure is significant.”
Samples taken during the fall 2023 prospecting programme at McCart consisted primarily of ultramafic and mafic units with very fine sulfide mineralization. Twenty-eight samples were taken, of which 10 samples returned assay values greater than 1000ppm Ni. Five samples were 1700-2230ppm Ni, with 2230ppm Ni from sample M007452 being the highest assay value of the programme.
The last hole drilled at Victoria was continued, in typical fashion, to the sedimentary contact at the bottom of the hole. As the three mineralized horizons had already been intersected, undercutting, and continuing the mineralization encountered in the prior, shallower, hole SUR-23-56 down dip, there was little expectation of the end of this hole.
Two additional mineralized occurrences were found at the end of hole SUR-23-57 in two forms. The first is within the typical blue/green ultramafics, which was as deep as 373m down the hole and included dark grey-black bands of graphite and magnetite which returned mineralized values in XRF testing.
The second occurrence is a zone of very intense carbonate-plagioclase alteration and recrystallization from 296.6-300.15m, only seen once before in any of Renforth’s drilling at Victoria in SUR-21-16, significantly east of this hole.
