Toronto, Canada, February 10th, 2023 – Tartisan Nickel Corp. (CSE: TN; OTCQX: TTSRF; FSE: 8TA) (“Tartisan”, or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that three phases of environmental baseline studies have been completed, and that “Phase 4” (winter/spring 2023) environmental baseline studies will be conducted at the Kenbridge Nickel Project, Kenora Mining District, Northwestern Ontario.
Tartisan had previously announced that Knight Piesold Consulting (“KP”) and Blue Heron Environmental (“BH”) have been retained to carry out the various time sensitive environmental baseline studies (SEDAR) and they will continue to conduct the requisite studies. Environmental baseline studies are critical in the permitting and approvals process and overall advancement of the Kenbridge Nickel Project. The Company is continuing to take the necessary steps to advance the Kenbridge Nickel Project with the goal of nickel-copper production and shovels in the ground, building out the Kenbridge mine site in approximately three years.
Work to be conducted in the winter/spring 2023 or “Phase 4” is outlined as follows:
- Bathymetry for receiving waterbodies/Lakes surrounding the project
- Fisheries Studies on creeks and lakes surrounding the project.
- Surface Water Quality Sampling from installed monitoring stations.
- Water Quality Profiling and Sampling from receiving waterbodies.
- Stream Flow Monitoring and data download from installed monitoring stations.
- Groundwater Quality Sampling from installed monitoring stations.
- Stage 2 Geochemistry Assessment
Tartisan Nickel Corp. CEO Mark Appleby commented, “Baseline studies continue at the Kenbridge Nickel Project and signify the Company’s commitment to an approximate three years to production timeline. The Company is continuing to implement all necessary steps in the permitting and mining approval process. The Kenbridge PEA outlined robust economics and established the value to the Ontario supply chain with implementation of the Kenbridge Nickel Project. The Kenbridge PEA can be found on SEDAR.”
The Kenbridge Nickel Project is located via the Trans-Canada Highway, 10.2 km from the township of Sioux Narrows. The Kenbridge Nickel Project has a 622-meter three compartment shaft with two underground level workstations and has never been mined.
