- Rockcliff Metals (RCLF) has revealed the details of an exploration program at the TGR deposit on its Tower Property in Manitoba
- The company will conduct a 1,400 metre, 4 to 6 hole drilling program on the site
- Assays already completed on TGR have returned results of 2.4 metres at 4.93 per cent nickel equivalent
- The deposit was discovered in the last drill hole the company sunk during it’s drill program in winter of 2020
- Rockcliff Metals (RCLF) closed yesterday at 7.5 cents per share
Rockcliff Metals (RCLF) is set to begin a 1,400 metre drilling program at the TGR nickel prospect on its Tower Property in Manitoba.
The TGR prospect was discovered in a largely unexplored portion of the property, and is associated with the ultramafic rock commonly found in the Thompson Nickel Belt.
TGR is located approximately 600 metres south of the Tower deposit, a high-grade, high-copper content deposit after which the property is named.
The TGR discovery hole was the final hole the company drilled during their winter exploration program. It previously intersected results that included up to 15 per cent nickel sulphides within the assays.
The company’s preliminary grab results from TGR have assayed out for significant amounts of rhodium and ruthenium. Rockcliff also detected elements of iridum and osmium.
As a result, the nickel equivalent grade across 2.4 metres was 4.93 per cent, which included a 1.25 metre interval with a nickel equivalent grade of 8.84 per cent.
The TGR drilling program will commence once Rockcliff has completed surface and bore hole geophysical surveys.
Alistair Ross, President and CEO of Rockcliff Metals, said further success at TGR would raise the importance of the Tower Property when the time came to selecting the first mining project in the Preliminary Economic Assessment for the project.
“I want to acknowledge Cyr Drilling and Norway House Cree Nation for the smooth start-up of this summer drill program.
“We continue to ramp up the program with the imminent arrival of a second drill and crew that will allow us to continue to focus on increasing the size of the Tower deposit and further explore the recent TGR discovery,” he added.
