Garibaldi Gears Up For Drilling At Nickel Mountain
|Vancouver, British Columbia, May 18, 2018 - Garibaldi Resources (TSX.V: GGI) (the "Company" or "Garibaldi") is pleased to provide the following exploration update as additional crews fill an expanded 40-person camp near the Eskay Creek mine to launch the most extensive drill campaign in Company history at the nickel-copper-rich Nickel Mountain massive sulphide discovery.|
"Supported by a treasury currently at $26 million, the Garibaldi base camp plus our operations at the top of Nickel Mountain have been expanded and upgraded to allow for drilling well into the winter season," Regoci concluded.
Nickel Mountain Discovery Draws Industry Leading Geophysics
Industry leader Lamontagne Geophysics Ltd. is well known for its important contributions to new nickel sulphide discoveries in the Sudbury basin through its deep-borehole electromagnetic technology. At Nickel Mountain, Lamontagne will provide follow-up drill hole surveys for Garibaldi's 2018 drill program with its proprietary BHEM tools to complement the Discovery Geophysics International HeliSam survey now underway to detect additional conductive anomalies at Nickel Mountain.
Discovery owns the exclusive North American rights to HeliSam hybrid ground-air technology which is ideally suited to locate conductors potentially representing massive sulphides in rugged terrain such as the Eskay Camp. Discovery will deploy approximately 18 kilometers of heavy gauge, insulated copper wire configured in a number of ground loops for deep and rapid airborne exploration using a helicopter towed high sensitivity B-field receiver system.
It should be noted that geophysical targets are interpretations subject to limitations on data and modeling. While geophysics has been effective at Nickel Mountain, geophysical targets should only be viewed as guides to drilling and sampling.
Everett Makela, Garibaldi VP Exploration Canada, stated: "Nickel Mountain is all about the 'science of discovery'. Cutting edge technology and innovative new exploration concepts have helped reveal a unique 7-suite mineral system with top tier nickel grades in the heart of a producing gold camp. Our team is exceptionally upbeat and driven as we prepare to build out the Nickel Mountain discovery."
