Commander Plans Geophysical Survey on Labrador Nickel Properties
| ||Commander Resources Ltd. (CMD-TSX Venture) plans to commence a 50 line kilometre UTEM-EM survey on its Adlatok, Sally and Sadie properties in the South Voisey's Bay area. Commander's previous work on the properties identified a potential nickel-copper sulphide environment in gabbro with similar chemical and alteration characteristics to the giant Voisey's Bay nickel Mine. The geophysical survey will cover a portion of the Pants Lake gabbroic intrusive complex, which is exposed in the western portion of the property and appears to dip gently eastward under cover. |
The objective of the geophysics will be to focus and define nickel-copper sulphide targets for drill-testing later in the year. The survey is expected to start later next month depending on weather conditions and crew availability.
A reconnaissance AMT-EM survey (audio-magneto-telluric) carried out by Commander in 2003 identified three apparent conductors on these properties at depths of 250-400 metres. The depth is consistent with the interpreted depth to the base of the gabbro, where sulphides may be expected to accumulate. The UTEM-EM is expected to define specific drill targets within the broad AMT - EM anomalies.
The Adlatok, Sally and Sadie properties are located about three kilometres north of the Sarah Lake Property, where Commander owns a 48% interest. A partial UTEM survey was completed over part of the Sarah Lake property last fall. Interpretation is pending. Further geophysical work on Sarah Lake will be planned based on the interpretation, when received.
Commander owns 100% of the Sally and Sadie claims and 59.85% of the Adlatok 1 property, all of which form a contiguous block adjoining the Sarah Lake property in which Commander owns a 48% interest.
