First Point Minerals Corp. (TSXV:FPX) announced exploration drilling has started at the Wale nickel-iron alloy prospect in northern British Columbia, Canada.
As quoted in the press release:
A proposed drill program of up to 8 widely-spaced holes totalling about 2,800 metres will test a 3-kilometre-long target area of the Wale property. The holes are being positioned based on last year’s surface sampling results, along with visual estimates of grain size and abundance of the mineral awaruite – a naturally occurring nickel-iron alloy – from this year’s recent detailed rock sampling and mapping work.
The Wale property is located 45 kilometres east of Dease Lake (a town on the Stewart-Cassiar Highway 37) and covers 119 square kilometres in the Stikine Ranges of northern B.C. The southern portion of the property can be accessed from a rough mining road and by trails.
