22 Feb 2022 Tartisan Nickel Corp. Acquires Additional Nickel-copper Claims At Turtle Pond, Northwest Ontario
Toronto, Canada, February 22, 2022 – Tartisan Nickel Corp. (CSE:TN; OTCQX:TTSRF; FSE:8TA) (“Tartisan”, or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company has acquired additional claims in the Turtle Pond Area, Northwestern Ontario, approximately 40 km south of Dryden, Ontario. The total property size now consists of 85 staked units covering 1,732.35 ha. The claims are owned 100% by Tartisan Nickel Corps. wholly owned subsidiary Canadian Arrow Mines Limited.
The claims are located approximately 70 kms east of the Company’s flagship Kenbridge Nickel Deposit. The property is situated in an area of excellent infrastructure and consists of 85 claim units and hosts the historical Glatz, Double E and Night Danger nickel-copper showings.
Previous exploration efforts identified nickel-copper sulphide mineralization in twelve trenches along a 700 metre trend at the Glatz nickel copper showing. The zone, discovered in 1965 by local prospector A. Glatz, is up to 40 metres wide and is open along strike and at depth. Historical grab samples were reported to contain up to 1.95% Ni. In 2007, Canadian Arrow Mines Limited. conducted a surface grab sampling program which produced the following results: 1.28% Ni, 0.26% Cu re Glatz Trench 3; 0.99% Ni, 0.18% Cu re Glatz Trench 3; 0.39% Ni, 4.06% Cu re Trench 4. The mineralization varies from disseminated sulphides to narrow semi-massive sulphide bands. Six short drill holes were completed at that time with hole GZ-09- 02 encountering 0.34% Ni, 0.16% Cu and 0.02% Co over 5.9 m from 45.0-50.9 m.
A nickel-copper-PGE discovery on the Double E airborne VTEM anomaly was identified in 2008. The drilling intersected two, separate upper and lower mineralized zones in 2 drill holes. Hole EE-09-02 intersected 4.2 metres of 0.81% Ni, 0.52% Cu, 0.20gpt Pt, 0.16gpt P and 0.20gpt Au at a depth of 25.5 metres. This included 2 metres of 1.35% Ni, 0.81% Cu, 0.36gpt Pt, 0.27gpt Pd and 0.31gpt Au. A second zone was intersected at a depth of 135.1 metres containing 8.2m of 0.55% Ni and 0.38% Cu. Hole EE-l0-04 intersected 1.9 metres of 0.51% Ni, 0.24% Cu at a depth of 21.4 metres and a second narrow intersection of 1.9 metres of 0.52% Ni, 0.28% Cu at a depth of 28 metres.
Exploration diamond drilling work completed in 2009 and 2010 on the Night Danger nickel-copper showing reported a nine-metre-wide section of stringers and blebs of sulphide which assayed 0.57% Ni and 0.45% Cu at a drill depth of 79m in hole ND-09-1. Two sections within this interval assayed greater than 1% nickel. Drill hole ND-10-1 intersected 4.53% Ni over 0.7m at a drill depth of 57.5m (Source; MNDM assessment files and Canadian Arrow Mines Limited news release dated June 1, 2010, SEDAR).
Mark Appleby, President and CEO of Tartisan stated “The Glatz, Double E and Night Danger nickel-copper showings display similar nickel and copper tenors as what we find near surface at our Kenbridge Nickel Deposit. Acquisition of these showings complements the company’s larger objective of developing the Kenbridge Nickel Deposit into an operating mine with a central milling facility. The Company will be formulating an exploration program consisting of Time Domain Electromagnetic surveys (TDEM), surface sampling and diamond drilling for 2022.”
