Vancouver, British Columbia (November 12, 2020) – Bathurst Metal Corp. (BMV.H ) (“Bathurst” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the acquisition of the McGregor Lake Project by the physical staking of 11 mineral claims covering 13,125 Ha. The company’s 100% owned property is approximately 100 km south of Kugluktuk in Nunavut. Company President and CEO, Harold Forzley states “This is a
significant addition to our land holdings in Western Nunavut. We look forward to expanding upon the historical surface and diamond drill samples”
McGregor Lake Pt/Cu/Ni/Pd/Au Project – Nunavut.
The company has acquired a100% interest by staking 11 mineral claims covering approximately 13,125 Ha covering the southern exposure of the Proterozoic, Layered Muskox Ultramafic Intrusive (LMUI) in western Nunavut.
The LMUI outcrops over 80 kilometres along strike and could be one of the largest layered, ultramafic complexes in the world based on regional airborne surveys. The region has received only sporadic, systematic exploration since its first discovery and exploration by Inco in the late 1950’s. Additional systematic exploration was not conducted again until the 1980’s and in 1999 to 2007. Several geochemical, geophysical, geological mapping and limited diamond drilling has been undertaken on the property. These studies have been able to define at least two sulphide pulses associated with the emplacement of the LMUI. These pulses both contain high nickel and copper concentrations with associated precious metals.
Listed below are some of the more significant historical precious metal assay results from rock sampling to date:
Historical Surface Chip Sampling
McGregor Lake Area
The Pyrrhotite Lake Area is approximately 5 kilometres south of the McGregor Lake Showings also along the eastern contact of the LMUI with the Archean Age Metasediments. Surface sampling was again able to return high precious metal values. Base metal values as shown in drill hole 87-P5 table also show high copper and nickel concentrations; however from the assay results the relationship between high grade precious and base metals suggests the possibility of mineralization having been remobilized.
