Wallbridge Mining Company Limited on Monday announced good results from a 12,000-metre drilling program on its flagship Parkin exploration project in Sudbury. One drill hole in particular uncovered nickel, copper, platinum, palladium, and gold at shallow depths.
“Wallbridge’s partner funded drilling in Sudbury continues to yield positive results,” Marz Kord, president and CEO of Wallbridge, said in a release, “In addition, following our recent success mining the Broken Hammer deposit, we are aggressively driving forward to identify our next mining opportunities.
“We see potential with continued drilling at Parkin for a near-term bulk sample pit and we continue to evaluate additional advanced stage projects in Ontario and Quebec with the objective of becoming an established and profitable producer,” Kord said.
Joshua Bailey, vice president Exploration for Sudbury-based Wallbridge, also said the results are encouraging.
“Surface stripping and channel sampling in 2015 exposed significant nickel-copper-PGM sulphides above the near surface historic resource at Parkin,” Bailey said. “We are currently focused on drilling in and around this resource to evaluate the potential for a near term bulk sample starter pit.
“Drill hole WMP-170 intersected significantly thicker mineralization than was previously modelled. This expands higher grade portions of the historic resource and demonstrates the potential for significant near surface tonnage.”
