Wolfden Resources Corporation has completed a five hole 23 hundred meter winter diamond drill program on their Rice Island nickel, copper, cobalt, platinum group elements project in Snow Lake. Three of the four holes that targeted the nickel rich Keel and Feeder Zones intersected encouraging sulphide mineralization and the fourth hole passed below the east plunging mineralization. The fifth hole that tested a regional airborne conductor and magnetic target yielded a 138 meter long zone with approximately 40 percent sulphides. The drill program was funded in part with support of a 230 thousand dollar grant from the Manitoba Government Mineral Development Fund.
Vice-President of Exploration Don Dudeck says the drilling was a success with respect to intersecting additional mineralization of the Keel and Feeder zones resulting in the potential to increase the known resources of the deposit. He adds they will follow up in the next round of drilling.
