VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NINE MILE METALS LTD. (CSE: NINE, OTCQB: VMSXF, FSE: KQ9) (the “Company” or “Nine Mile”) is pleased to announce it has drilled and confirmed a VMS system at its inaugural California Lake Project drill program, in the world-famous Bathurst Mining Camp in New Brunswick.
Two orientation drill holes were collared at California Lake to intersect the geophysical trend defined by the late time conductance in the reprocessed MegaTEM data as defined by EarthEx Geophysical Solutions Inc. (“EarthEx”). The holes also confirmed both the geological sequence and structure that is known to host the mineralization. Having established a base model, an 89-meter hole was drilled due west at a dip of -45 degrees intersecting sulphides between 43.00 and 57.00 meters, including numerous zones of massive Cu, Pb, Zn, Ag, Au bearing, BMC style, VMS mineralization as displayed in the four photos below.

We are in early stages of this drill program, but this further defines that our scientific, leading edge technology exploration process continues to deliver results. We will continue to be driven by our unique exploration processes and the next steps will be to measure, photograph, log and cut the samples for our internal XRF screening process to identify the sample sections for certified Lab Analysis to ALS Global Labs, North Vancouver, British Columbia. We look forward to reporting further results from our drill program at California Lake”, stated Patrick J. Cruickshank, MBA, CEO & Director.
