North American Nickel Inc. (TSXV:NAN,OTCBB:WSCRF) announced that it has started exploration at its wholly-owned Maniitsoq project, located in Southwest Greenland. The company expects to begin drilling in mid-August.
As quoted in the press release:
A helicopter-borne, Versatile Time-Domain EM (VTEM) survey commenced last week and is being conducted by Geotech Ltd. of Aurora, Ontario. The survey is focused on the highly prospective Greenland Norite Belt (GNB) where historical drilling intersected high grade nickel sulphide mineralization (e.g. 9.85 m of sulphide mineralization averaging 2.67% Ni and 0.60% Cu in drill hole Im-9).
The survey will total over 3,000 line-kilometres and, together with last year’s SkyTEM survey, will provide near complete helicopter TEM coverage of the entire GNB within the company’s land holdings. Surveying will also be done over selected targets outside the main GNB.
