The Nickel King Property, situated in the Northwest Territories, 135km northeast of Stony Rapids, Saskatchewan, is known for its Ni-Cu-Co deposit.

The deposit spans a strike length of approximately 2,600m and is contained within two arcuate stacked norite sills.

A compliant NI 43-101 geological resource model has indicated significant mineral resources at the Nickel King Property.

The indicated category boasts 11.1 million tonnes (t) with grades of 0.40% Ni, 0.10% Cu and 0.018% Co, containing 44,500t of Ni, 10,600t of Cu and 2,200t of Co.

Cornish Metals director and interim CEO Ken Armstrong said: “The sale of Nickel King aligns with Cornish Metals’ objective to focus its efforts on advancing its 100% owned and fully permitted South Crofty tin project, in the UK, towards a construction decision.

“Cornish Metals will retain exposure to any future exploration success at Nickel King, as Northera works to recommence exploration activities at the Nickel King Property, which comprises approximately 4,000ha [hectares] in mining leases and mineral claims in Canada’s Northwest Territories.”
