Voltage Metals Property Acquisition and Director Appointment

2022-04-12 05:13:56

TORONTO, April 12, 2022 /CNW/ – Voltage Metals Corp. (CSE: VOLT) (the “Company” or “Voltage”) is pleased to provide this corporate update to its shareholders.

Property Acquisition

Voltage has entered into an option agreement to acquire the Jerry Lake nickel/copper property located 140 km northeast of Timmins Ontario. The Jerry Lake intrusion has never been evaluated with ground geophysical surveys and has only had a single drill hole which failed to reach bedrock.  The Ni-Cu sulphide potential of the Jerry Lake gabbro is supported by a well pronounced chalcopyrite and nickel-in-till dispersal fan in the down-ice location.

The project covers 2,080 hectares and displays many strong similarities with the Company’s St Laurent project 60 km to the east. In 2019, drilling at St Laurent returned a number of encouraging intersections demonstrating the high nickel tenor, nickel sulphide potential (see Table 1).
