Canada Nickel (TSX.V: CNC) (OTCQX: CNIKF) is reporting on robust nickel recovers from the initial metallurgical test conducted on a sample from the Reid property. Based on the report, the test at Reid delivered the highest-grade nickel sulphide concentrate achieved by Canada Nickel thus far; results also indicated an overall nickel recovery of 63% with half of recovered nickel reporting to nickel sulphide concentrate grading 60%. According to the announcement, the test used the same mineral processing flowsheet designed for the company’s flagship Crawford Nickel Sulphide project, which is located about 15 kilometers from the Reid project. Canada Nickel also announce that it closed on the acquisition of a 100% interest in the Texmont property, which includes 14 mining leases; the property is situated between CNIKF’s Deloro and Sothman properties south of Timmins, Ontario. “We are very pleased by this first test at Reid, which achieved an overall nickel recovery of 63% and achieved expected or better than expected nickel, iron, and chromium concentrate grades,” said Canada Nickel chair and CEO Mark Selby in the press release. “While it is early days at Reid, these results, achieved using the standard flowsheet developed for Crawford, demonstrate the potential to leverage our development work at Crawford, across the portfolio of targets throughout our entire Timmins Nickel District. I am also very pleased to announce that we have closed the acquisition of the Texmont property, where our recently announced drill results support the potential for near-term, smaller scale, open pit production.”
