TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / February 17, 2021 / Tartisan Nickel Corp. (CSE:TN)(OTC Pink:TTSRF)(FSE:A2D) ("Tartisan", or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has purchased a 100% interest in certain claims in the Sault Ste. Marie Mining District in Ontario to complete the Sill Lake lead-silver property package.
The mining claims purchased are located in Van Koughnet Township, about 30 km north of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. A cash payment of $75,000; the issuance of 100,000 common shares in the capital of Tartisan Nickel Corp. and a 2% net smelter return royalty (subject to a 1% buy-back provision for $250,000) has been paid and assigned in consideration to the vendors. The Company additionally reports that 17 single cell mining claims contiguous to the Sill Lake land package have been staked. The Sill Lake lead-silver project now consists of 47 single cell mining claims which represents 933.57 hectares.
Lead-silver mineralization was originally discovered at Sill Lake in 1892, when a 30m adit was driven to a 17m internal shaft, with approximately 40m of lateral development to exploit a lead-silver vein. The Sill Lake lead-silver property was later defined by explorers who conducted a 3750m of diamond drill program along a defined steeply dipping mineralized trend some 850m in length, with mineralized widths varying between 1.5m and 4.5m. The Sill Lake Lead-Silver Project has seen two distinct periods of underground development and production and it is estimated that 7,000 tonnes of ore containing lead and silver were mined. In 2010, a historical NI 43-101 Technical Report gave a measured and indicated mineral resource of 112,751 tonnes at 134 g/t silver; 0.62% lead, and 0.21% zinc. The historical resource estimate used a silver cutoff grade of 60 g/t; but no cutoff grade for the base metal content was used. Tartisan Nickel Corp. announced on November 18, 2020 that SMX International Corp. was retained to update the Sill Lake Lead-Silver Property historical NI 43-101 Resource Report. The Technical Report should be available in the first quarter of 2021.
Tartisan CEO Mark Appleby stated, "The purchase of these Sill Lake lead-silver claims enhances the Sill Lake property package. Tartisan believes the Sill Lake Lead-Silver Project should generate shareholder value in the short term".
