Encouraging results for Sudbury mining company Wallbridge – by Staff (Sudbury Star – June 1, 2016)


Wallbridge Mining Company Limited says new studies of its flagship Parkin Properties in Sudbury show promising results. Lively-based Wallbridge is exploring the Parkin Properties, located north of Capreol, for nickel, copper, and platinum group metal mineralization.

“We continue to have excellent results from our exploration programs at Parkin as demonstrated by the results reported in the last few months. Attractive copper, nickel, and PGM grades continue to be intersected and the mineralization intersected in the most recent holes is expanding the near-surface mineralization yet further north,” Marz Kord, president and CEO of Wallbridge, said in a release.

“With over nine kilometres of strike length with similar under-explored geology, the potential for further discoveries of new zones on the Parkin Offset dyke looks very promising,” Kord said.

“We will continue to expand the mineralization and evaluate the possibility of a surface bulk sample on the southern portion of Parkin while advancing our other business opportunity, the Fenelon Mine Project purchase and its eventual development.”

The Parkin Properties are being explored for high-grade polymetallic nickel, copper, and platinum group metals over a 9.4 km strike length of the Parkin Offset Dyke. Parkin includes the past-producing Milnet Mine.

Nickel, copper and platinum group metal mineralization at Parkin is typical of that hosted by quartz diorite offset dykes in the Sudbury mining camp. Offset dyke structures are responsible for approximately one-third of all ore mined in Sudbury.
