Green River Gold Corp. intercepts its highest nickel XRF results to date in Zone 2 of the Quesnel Nickel Project, including 0.355% nickel over 7 meters and individual XRF readings as high as 1.94% nickel

Edmonton, Alberta–(Newsfile Corp. – November 2, 2022) – Green River Gold Corp. (CSE: CCR) (OTC Pink: CCRRF) (the “Company” Where “green river“) is pleased to provide an update on the progress of the 2022 exploration program at its Quesnel Nickel project, located 40 kilometers from the city of Quesnel, British Columbia, in the prolific Cariboo mining district.

The Company has completed its first two deeper holes of a planned ten-hole drill program in Zone 2. Zone 2 is located approximately 8 kilometers southeast of Zone 1, which is already known to contain nickel, chromium, magnesium and talc, according to previous analyses. drilling. Zone 2 consists of a rocky outcrop covering an area of ​​more than one square kilometre. Zones 1 and 2 are both located along the 14 kilometer long Deep Purple magnetic anomaly.

The nickel on the property is hosted in ultramafic rocks, mainly black phanerite peridotite, belonging to the Slide Mountain Terrane (Crooked Amphibolite). The peridotite shows intense serpentine alteration and strong brecciation. Talc alteration occurs along quartz-calcite veinlets. Core sulphides consist of disseminated pyrite, pyrrhotite and pentlandite. The Slide Mountain Terrane is underlain by metasediments (limestone and sandstone) belonging to the Ramos Succession of the Barkerville Terrane. The metasediments were intersected at 45.8 m in hole WK-22-01 and at 73.15 m in hole WK-22-02.

Drill holes WK-22-01 and WK-22-02 were drilled along the eastern edge of the Slide Mountain Terrane exposure. We expect the next western drill holes WK-22-06 to WK-22-10 to intercept a thicker portion of nickel mineralization in the Slide Mountain Terrane. Nickel mineralization is open in all lateral directions with reference to holes WK-22-01 and WK-22-02.

The drill core was delivered to the Company’s facility in Quesnel and scanned with an XRF analyzer. Drill hole WK-22-01 was drilled to a depth of 81 meters. From surface to 49.2 meters, the nickel content averaged 0.251%. Drill hole WK-22-02 was drilled to a depth of 97.5 meters. From surface to 76 meters, the nickel content averaged 0.263%.

The story continues

Nickel grades recorded with a handheld XRF scanner were higher than those encountered by the company in its previous drill programs in Zones 1 and 2 meters to 19 meters.

Note: XRF data is taken as point values ​​and will not represent the true grade of the analyzed samples. The data items are highly dependent on where the beam intersects the rock. The device used to take the data points is an Olympus Vanta C Series handheld X-ray fluorescence (XRF) and produces a beam spot diameter of up to 3 mm. It is designed to deliver lab-quality results in the field and provides fast and accurate elemental analysis and testing.

Perry Little, President and CEO of Green River comments, “We are pleased to see nickel grades increasing as we drill deeper. We are eagerly awaiting the results of the next 8 drill holes that we plan to drill over the next few weeks. River has yet to drill a hole on the 14 kilometer long Deep Purple anomaly which does not have the same surface nickel and chromium values ​​and we have drilled at various locations over a 10 kilometer stretch of ownership so far. will continue across the entire Deep Purple Anomaly.”
