Amur Minerals Corporation, the nickel-copper sulphide mineral exploration and resource development company, announced it received the final quality assurance, quality control analytical results for its 2017 drill season at its Kun-Manie project.
The company said that with the possession of the original Alex Stewart Laboratory set of results and this critical final quality assurance, quality control analytical information, it has engaged RPM Global to undertake an update of the February 2017 Mineral Resource Estimate, or MRE, along the newly expanded mineralised zone.
The newly expanded mineralised zone has been increased from 1.4 kilometres in length to that of 3.6 kilometres, replacing the MRE's of Kenskoe and Sobolevsky, or IKEN, and Kubuk, or KUB. The Company said it anticipates a substantial increase to the MRE of February 2017.
Robin Young, CEO of Amur Minerals, said: 'With this milestone, we have engaged RPM Global to update the February 2017 Mineral Resource at Kun-Manie.'
'With drilling having confirmed mineralisation along over 3.6 kilometres of length where only 1.4 kilometres had been previously drill identified, we anticipate a substantial increase in the nickel copper resource of February 2017.'
'Going into the initiated RPM update, the area was defined to contain about 258,000 nickel tonnes or about a third of our global 770,000 tonne nickel resource inventory.'
