Québec Nickel to Kick off Its 2023 Drilling Program at Ducros

Québec Nickel Corp. (CSE: QNI) (OTCQB: QNICF) reports the start of its winter 2023 drilling program at the Ducros Ni-Cu-PGE Project located approximately 80 kilometres northeast to Val-d’Or, Québec. Upon completion of its recent successful financing, which saw more than $8.5 million dollars raised. The company aims to complete approximately 20,000 metres of drilling in 2023.

We sat down with David Patterson, CEO of Québec Nickel to discuss these recent developments:

Mr. Patterson further commented:

“We are very excited to get right back to work after our inaugural 2022 exploration program at Ducros. The team and I are really looking forward to following-up on the exceptional drilling results we’ve seen so far at the Fortin Sill Zone in addition to testing the many other Ni-Cu-PGE targets we have across the property.”

The 2023 drilling contract has been awarded to Val-d’Or-based Orbit Garant Drilling Inc. who will supply up to three diamond drills throughout the course of the year to complete the planned 20,000 metre drill program. There are currently two drills on the property and field crews are actively preparing access trails to the various targets. Drilling is expected to begin within the next ten days and is planned at the Fortin Sill Zone, Ducros Ultramafic Sill Complex and Ducros Gabbro targets.

At the Fortin Sill Zone, drilling is focused on the continued evaluation and expansion of the Ni-Cu-PGE-mineralized mafic to ultramafic intrusion as well as the testing and exploration of the updated geological model (see QNI’s December 15, 2022 News Release for more details). Drilling at the Ducros Ultramafic Sill Complex and Ducros Gabbro targets is focussed on testing the numerous high-priority geophysical anomalies derived from the integration and 3-D modelling of the geophysical surveys completed during the 2022 exploration program at Ducros, including the VTEM™, drone-based magnetics and airborne Falcon gravity surveys (see November 16, 2022 News Release for additional details).
