Vancouver, BC / TheNewswire / September 6, 2023 / Global Energy Metals Corporation TSXV:GEMC | OTCQB:GBLEF | FSE:5GE1 (“Global Energy Metals”, the “Company” and/or “GEMC”), a multi-jurisdictional, multi-commodity critical mineral exploration and development company focused on growth-oriented battery metal projects supporting the global transition to clean energy, is pleased to report that High-Tech Metals Limited (“High-Tech” and/or “HTM”), an equity investee of GEMC, has significantly increased its exposure to nickel sulphides and copper through the acquisition of the Norpax Nickel Sulphide Deposit and the Reynar Lake Ni-Cu-Co Project (the Projects”).
Nickel Sulphide Deposit:
- A historical non-NI 43-101 compliant resource of 1,010,000 tonnes 1.2% Ni and 0.5% Cu (refer to Canadian Mines Handbook 1963, pg 215).
- The deposit lies ~1 km west of HTM’s existing project, Werner Lake, and along the Werner Lake Belt.
- The Norpax nickel mineralisation sits on a known mineralised fault zone, the regional scale Werner-Gordon-Rex lake fault which extends from Rayner Lake in the west, passing under Almo Lake, east through the Werner Lake Co and Gordon Lake Cu-Ni deposits to Rex Lake.
- Mineralised peridotite is known to host many significant nickel deposits such as companies Mincor Resources Ltd in Kambalda and also Azure Minerals Ltd (ASX:AZS) Andover project’s ultramafic zone, which is in part peridotite.
- The area has a rich history in nickel sulphide mines with the old Gordon Lake Mine located 3.5 km to the East of Werner Lake, which produced 1,370,285 tons averaging 0.92% Ni and 0.47% Cu and has existing reserves of 170,420 tonnes averaging 0.85% Ni and 0.35% Cu2.
Reynar Lake Ni-Cu-Co Project:
- Reynar Lake project immediately adjoins HTM’s Werner Lake Project.
- The ground is highly prospective for Ni, Cu and Co and should the option be exercised, it will provide HTM with additional landholding to potentially increase its cobalt resource and explore for additional nickel sulphide mineralisation.
High-Tech plans to build on the recent exploration success at Werner Lake that confirmed not only the copper-cobalt potential of the project, but also the discovery of high-grade nickel sulphide at surface, and will immediately begin planning exploration on the newly acquired Projects.
As part of the acquisition of the Projects, HTM plans to undertake:
- A review of all available geological data.
- Prepare a systematic geochemical sampling program of known mineral occurrences on the projects in conjunction with reconnaissance geological mapping.
- Relog and assay of any available historic core.
This acquisition and option on highly prospective properties follows significant results having been achieved through the Ni-Cu-Co geochemical assessment of 209 rock samples and a successful orientation ground geophysical program, (Refer to High-Tech’s ASX Releases dated 20th April 2023 and 26th May 2023) which was pivotal in identifying potential mineral deposits and improving the understanding of the geological structure of the area.
High-Tech is in the final steps of planning its maiden drill program at Werner Lake targeting high priority drill targets, with drilling planned for this Fall/Autumn. Drill targeting is focussing on proximity of significant base metal results with high magnetic anomalies.
In January 2023 GEMC completed the divestment of its 70% interest in the Werner Lake Project to High-Tech. The Company currently holds 2.5 million High-Tech shares representing a 7.61% interest in the ASX company.
