East Range Properties
Wallbridge is exploring its East Range properties in Sudbury for copper, nickel and PGEs in the footwall to Vale's Victor-Capre projects, Glencore's Nickel Rim South mine, and KGHM International's Podolsky mine.
The East Range properties include the 62% Wallbridge owned Frost Lake joint venture with Glencore, the 50% Wallbridge owned Capreol JV with Vale and Glencore, and the 100% Wallbridge owned Drill Lake and Victor East properties.
Copper and platinum group metal mineralization occurs at Frost Lake within the roughly 100 metre wide by 600 metre long Amy Lake PGE Zone, where WC-013 intersected 48.40 metres averaging 0.86 g/t platinum plus palladium plus gold and WC-038 intersected 75.48 metres averaging 0.51 g/t platinum plus palladium plus gold, both including higher grade sub-intervals. The Amy Lake PGE zone is hosted within the same Sudbury breccia structure as Vale's adjacent Capre deposit, about 600 metres to the south; this Sudbury breccia structure extends for about two kilometres on the Frost Lake property. Nickel and copper mineralization also occurs within an ultramafic intrusion on the Frost Lake property, including 16.0 metres that averaged 0.48 % Ni and 0.27 % Cu with higher grade sub-intervals.
