- Shareholders approve name change to Grid Metals Corp.
- Geophysical survey at Makwa Nickel Property underway.
Toronto, Ontario (FSCwire) - Mustang Minerals Corp. (TSX-V: MUM) (“Mustang” or the “Company”) today announced that the resolution presented at the shareholders meeting of March 9, 2018 to approve the name change of the Company was approved. The name change to Grid Metals Corp. will reflect the unique property portfolio of Mustang that includes exposure to the key battery metals including nickel, copper, lithium and cobalt. The key projects of the Company are all located in southeastern Manitoba in the Bird River Greenstone Belt. The Company anticipates that the name change will be effected prior to mid April 2018.
Nickel Exploration Update
The ground electromagnetic (EM) geophysical study previously referenced by the Company has now commenced at the Makwa Nickel Property following completion of linecutting. The program will consist of down hole surveying of several holes that encountered significant nickel copper pgm intercepts (see press release dated January 29, 2018) as well as ground EM surveying over a 3.1 kilometer portion of the Bird River sill to the east of the Makwa Nickel Deposit. The double loop configuration being utilized is designed to assess the potential for mineralization to greater depths than would have been covered by previous surveys at the property. Abititi Geophysics is the contractor completing the geophysical program.
The mineralization at Makwa is predominantly nickel but also contains significant platinum, palladium, copper and cobalt credits. The Makwa Indicated resource grade (open pit) is 7.2 Mt grading 0.61% nickel, 0.13% copper, 0.10 g/t Pt and 0.36 g/t Pd. (per Mineral Resource Summary dated November 27, 2013). The following chart references several of the higher grade drill holes drilled at approximately 200m downhole depth and greater at the Makwa open pit deposit. These type of grades and higher constitute the exploration target of the current geophysical survey.
