Usha Resources Announces Commencement of Drilling at the Nicobat Nickel-Copper-PGE Project
Updated: Feb 7
Vancouver, British Columbia / October 13, 2020 – Usha Resources Ltd. (“USHA” or the “Company”) (TSXV: USHA) (OTCQB: USHAF) is pleased to announce the commencement of its fully funded drilling program at its Nicobat nickel-copper-PGE project located in Dobie Township, Northwest Ontario with Asinike Drilling of Naotkamegwanning First Nation as the drilling contractor. The Property lies 21 kilometres south of New Golds’ Rainy River Mine in the Rainy River Greenstone Belt that forms the southern part of the Wabigoon Subprovince.
The Property covers a lobate arm along the southwest margin of the differentiated Dobie Intrusive complex. The complex hosts a number of sulphide zones with the Nico 1 Showing Cu‐Ni mineralization the target of the current work program. Previous drilling has identified a number of ‘high grade shoots’ within a large body of disseminated sulphides. Historical drill hole A‐04‐15 intersected from the surface to 63.75 meters averaging of 1.05% nickel and 2.18% copper (note that the true width of A‐04‐15 is materially narrower than the drill hole intersection). The initial phase of the exploration program in October will be approximately 6 drill holes totaling an estimated 1,400 m. The drill holes are targeting below the positive results from A‐04‐15 and will further define the near-surface geometry of the plunging high-grade mineralization and test for its continuation.
Deepak Varshney, Usha’s CEO stated, "We are very excited to be able to launch our maiden drill program at the Nicobat Project. We believe the previous drilling was just scratching the surface in terms of the potential and this upcoming drill program is the first step in realizing the Nicobat Project's true potential.
"We are very fortunate that Andrew Tims will be helming this project for us.
"As an exploration geologist with over 30 years of experience, including significant time in the Kirkland Lake-Timmins and Red Lake gold camps plus the Wabigoon area of Northwest Ontario where Usha Resources' Nicobat Project is located, Andrew knows what it takes to lead a successful exploration project.
"He is a world-class geologist with proven success in the area – there is a reason why he has been part of successful teams at Cyprus Canada, Hemlo Gold Mines, and Rainy River Resources – and we could not think of a better fit to be leading this project for us.”
