Metallica Metals (MM) has begun field mapping and prospecting work at its nickel-copper (Ni-Cu) Sammy Ridgeline Project.

The field program will focus on confirming geophysical exploration targets of platinum and palladium (PGM) that were developed from a detailed study using data from the 2021 MobileMT airborne survey.

The project has numerous showings and mineral occurrences comprised of molybdenum, copper, zinc, lead, silver, tin, tungsten, and uranium but was never previously explored for PGMs.

The exploration program is scheduled to run until the end of the summer field season and will consist of geological and structural mapping, grab and channel sampling, and possible trenching.

Metallica Metals’ CEO Aaron Stone noted that the project boasts ease of access with a strong road network already in place. Outcropping geology is plentiful across the two blocks, which bodes well for exploration.

“Metallica Metals is very happy with the competent local team we’ve assembled to complete the exploration program at Sammy Ridgeline. We look forward to seeing the results from this mapping and prospecting program.”

The project is in the Thunder Bay North District of Ontario. Sammy Ridgeline is located approximately 50 km northeast of Thunder Bay, with the two claim blocks lying on either side of Clean Air Metal’s Thunder Bay North Project.

Metallica Metals Corp. (MM) is a junior exploration company targeting gold, silver, platinum, and palladium properties across Canada.

Metallica Metals is unchanged, trading at $0.02 at 9:40 a.m. ET.
