Nine Mile Metals (NINE) has completed the phase 1 drill program on the Nine Mile Brook VMS Project.

Seven diamond drill holes were completed including five target drill holes and two borehole EM drill holes.

At target zone #1, five drill holes were collared to drill the sample area, collect samples for assay and mineralogy, and for analysis by EarthEX Geophysical Solutions Inc. for physical properties.

The results of the EarthEx study will assist in defining the survey parameters for upcoming ground and borehole electro-magnetic surveys.

The results show visual mineralization on all five VMS target DDH drill holes with intersections ranging from 9 metres to 14 metres+ of high-grade VMS mineralization. In all five VMS target drill holes, abundant pyrite, chalcopyrite, sphalerite, and galena were observed in drill core locally mixed with sediments.

The style of mineralization varied from banded, massive to disseminated, the latter typical for sphalerite.

“Having hit wide intersections of mineralization with high concentrations in Copper, Lead, and Zinc, we look forward to the Borehole EM Survey so we can get a definition of the subsurface mineralized body and other potential VMS clusters beneath the surface,” said Gary Lohman, the company’s qualified person and a member of Nine Mile’s Technical Advisory Committee.

“We have filed for the permits for the 2 Downhole EM Surveys in this phase 1 drill program, and we are also awaiting EarthEX Geophysical Solution’s proprietary 3D-AI analysis modeling for the entire Nine Mile Brook Project Claims with target prioritization for our phase 2 drill program,” stated Patrick J Cruickshank, MBA, Director, and member of the Technical Advisory Committee.

Nine Mile Metals Ltd. is a Canadian public mineral exploration company focused on VMS exploration in the Bathurst Mining Camp, New Brunswick.

Nine Mile Metals Ltd was up 52.63 per cent, trading at $0.145 at 3:26 ET.
