Arya Resources Completes Initial Drilling and Phase 1 of Drill Program at Dunlop Nickel Project

Source: Arya Resources

Arya Resources (TSXV:RBZ) has completed the first phase of exploratory drilling at its Dunlop nickel-copper project located approximately 45 km north of La Ronge. The drilling program, conducted between December 7-17, 2023, consisted of 8 drill holes totaling 1,045 meters.

The company focused drilling on targets identified at the East Zone of the historic Dunlop deposit. Visual inspection of the drill core indicates the presence of nickel and copper sulfide mineralization similar to that found in previous exploration campaigns between 1960-1980. The core is being processed at a facility in La Ronge before being sent to SRC Labs in Saskatoon for assay analysis.

Previous work outlined a historical resource of 18.11 million tonnes containing nickel, copper, chromium and cobalt. Approximately 12.83 million tonnes were considered viable for open pit mining with the remainder suitable for underground extraction. Historical grades ranged from 0.55% to 1.46% nickel and 0.15% to 0.39% copper.

Arya Resources is a mining and exploration company focused on critical minerals including gold, uranium, lithium and rare earth elements. The company’s shares trade on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol RBZ.

The Dunlop project is accessible via provincial highways and power infrastructure. Arya states it has obtained all necessary permits for exploration drilling. Assay results from the recent drill program are still pending.

Highlights from the program are as follows:
