Advanced Explorations (OTC Other: ADEXF; TSX-V: AXI) will play a role in advancing Canada’s newest and most exciting Nickel-copper district. The discovery of significant Nickel-Copper and Copper-Silver-Gold mineralization on the western side of the Melville Peninsula was announced in late 2011. A minimum of five zones of nickel-copper mineralization were identified, with better assay values of 0.86% Ni, 0.59% Cu, 0.04% Co and 0.40% Ni, 0.19% Cu, 0.04% Co, and one zone of high grade copper-silver-gold mineralization returned assays of 1.93% Cu, 33 g/t Ag, 0.35 g/t Au and 1.06% Cu, 18.8 g/t Ag, 0.14 g/t Au.
According to John Gingerich, President & CEO, “Seldom do junior exploration companies have an opportunity to participate in the discovery of a new mineral province; we believe the nickel-copper discoveries on the western Melville Peninsula represent the first significant nickel discovery in Canada since Voisey’s Bay and are very excited about the potential to discover world class nickel-copper orebodies. The Company has a significant land position, have an experienced team and are well positioned to pursue this opportunity while maintaining our focus on the development of our iron projects.”
