Canadian Palladium Continues to Extend Mineralization
October 28, 2020 (Source) — Canadian Palladium Resources Inc. (CSE: BULL) (OTCQB: DCNNF) (FSE: DCR1) (the “Company”) is pleased to provide additional analytical results for diamond drill holes EB-20-25 to EB-20-31 on the East Bull Palladium Property, 90 kilometres west of Sudbury, Ontario.
The Company’s 10,000 m drill program is currently extending the Palladium Valhalla Zone resource down dip and towards the west. Interpretation of recent diamond drill core results is also assisting in defining the geological connection between the project’s Valhalla and Garden Zones.
Wayne Tisdale, Canadian Palladium’s CEO, commented, “These recent East Bull results are confirming our expectations – that the Valhalla Zone’s mineralization continues to the west. Our team of geologists are also looking forward to advancing their theses regarding the connectivity between the Valhalla and Garden Zones.”
All holes being reported intersected mineralized zones of greater than 1.0 grams per ton Palladium Equivalent ranging from 2 to 20 metres (Drill core length).
To date, the Company’s exploration team has drill tested just over half of the 3.2 km strike length of the 45o north dipping vari-textured gabbro unit which hosts the Palladium mineralization near the basal contact of the East Bull Gabbro. Drilling has successfully focused on testing the downdip extension of this “contact-type” mineralization. Such mineralization structures are typically tens of metres thick. To date all of the intercepts are shallow and within 150 m vertical depth from surface.
Drill hole intercepts for holes EB20-25 to -31 are reported in the following table. Drill hole locations are provided at the end of the release. A drill hole plan was reported in the October 21, 2020 Press Release (http://canadianpalladium.com).
Diamond Drill Hole Results EB-20-25 to EB-20-31
- Individual demarked samples were sawn in half, bagged, sealed and transported by courier to Activation Laboratories (ISO/IEC 17025 Certified) in Ancaster Ontario. Duplicates and standards were introduced to the sample stream as illustrated. Each sample was analysed using the Activation Laboratories codes RX1, 1C-OES 50 g (Au, Pt, Pd); 1F2 Total Digestion ICP.
- Reported widths are drilled widths, with true widths estimated to be 90 per cent of drilled widths for minus-60-degree-holes to approximately 85 per cent of drilled width for minus-70-degree holes.
- Pd-Eq grade based on parameters in the May 23, 2019, NI 43-101 Resource Estimate and Technical Report. Metal prices are based on 24-month trailing averages at January 31, 2018. In US$ these prices are: Pd – S767/oz; Pt – $973/oz; Rh – $1,000/oz; Au – $1.262/oz; Cu – $2.53/lb; Ni – $4.62/lb; Co – $20/lb.
- * Rhodium results are pending on the intersections.
Additional assay results will be released as they are received from the laboratory.
The Company also announces the grant of 2,850,000 incentive stock options to certain directors, officers and consultants, subject to regulatory approval. The stock options are exercisable at $0.14 for a period of 5 years and subject to vesting provisions.
