North American Nickel Inc. (TSXV:NAN,OTCBB:WSCRF,CUSIP:65704T 108) announced it has commenced field work on its Maniitsoq nickel project.
As quoted in the press release:
Field work is focusing on ground proofing conductive zones identified from helicopter-borne time domain EM surveys completed by NAN in 2011 and 2012 in preparation for a drill program scheduled to commence later in the month. It is anticipated that a minimum of 10 holes totalling 2,000 meters will be diamond drilled.
As described in NAN press release dated July 24, 2012, a recently completed VTEM survey over parts of the project area identified 50 conductive zones. These zones are in addition to 25 conductive zones previously identified by a SkyTEM survey flown by NAN in the fall of 2011. As described in a press release dated July 25, 2012, ground proofing conductive zones will involve geologists flying to the location of priority anomalies and conducting examinations of outcropping rocks in the area around the anomaly.
