$NSM.ca Northern Sphere Mining Corp. to Follow up on Cobalt Values up to 0.23% Sampled from Various Showings on Its Sudbury District Scadding Property

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 6:00 PM on Thursday, April 19th, 2018

 

 

  • Cobalt identified in 0.20 and 0.23% 2 KM apart from each other
  •  Scadding hosts abundant Nippissing diabase intrusives with a NW-SE orientation
  • Mineral resources found on the property are clustered and parallel to the Nippissing dykes
  • At the Scadding Property, favourable geological context also occurs in contact zones between the Nippissing intrusives and a competent host rocks

Northern Sphere Mining Corp. (CSE: NSM) (OTCQB: NSMCF) (“Northern Sphere” or the “Company”) will be investigating known Cobalt anomalies on its Scadding Property located in Sudbury’s Nickel District. Outcrop sampling at two separate mineral showings, approximately 2 km apart, returned values of 0.23% Cobalt (Red Rock Occurrence) and 0.20% Cobalt (McLean Secret Showing). Geophysical signatures identified by Northern Spherein 2017 correlate well with the location of these outcrops. The 3D magnetic re-inversion (which re-interprets and models three dimensional geophysical data) identified several optimal targets on our 40,000-acre property.

In addition to the significant Cobalt values recovered from outcrop sampling, Northern Sphere also analysed for Cobalt as part of a multi-element package on its last hole during the 2017 drill campaign. Hole NSM-17-06 returned values of up to 189 ppm Cobalt and 678 ppm Nickel from drill core exhibiting strong chloritized segments. Northern Sphere intends to analyse a percentage of similar material from its core storage facility for both Cobalt and Nickel. Currently, Northern Sphere is prioritizing optimized drill targets for its 2018 drill campaign.

Scadding Property — Sudbury District, Ontario

The Scadding Property is nestled at the junction between the Abitibi-Wawa greenstone belt (which encompasses the Sudbury Igneous Complex), the Grenville Front, and the Huronian Supergroup (see Figure 1). The Scadding Property is located at a large scale structural junction. World class base metal deposits are located to the West (Sudbury Nickel District) and precious metal deposits are located to the East (River Valley Pt-Pd, Cobalt Silver).

The Scadding Property plays host to abundant Nippissing diabase intrusives which utilized pre-existing structure during emplacement. The intrusives demonstrate a preferred NW-SE orientation. Mineral resources found on the property are clustered within these corridors and parallel to the Nippissing dykes. Within the Cobalt, Ontario Camp, Silver and Cobalt mineralization are generally found in proximity to the Nippissing Diabase. At the Scadding Property, favourable geological context also occurs in contact zones between the Nippissing intrusives and a competent host rocks (i.e. quartzite of the Serpent Formation).

Northern Sphere will continue to advance and acquire district scale properties for successful future mineral exploitation.

Quality Control

Northern Sphere’s quality control and assurance program includes the use of an independent certified lab, AGAT Laboratories (“AGAT”) of Mississauga, Ontario. All AGAT geochemical hub laboratories are accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2005 for specific analytical procedures. The AGAT quality program includes quality control steps through sample preparation and analysis, inter-laboratory test programs, and regular internal audits.

Northern Sphere: A True Discount to Market #FCE.tsx

      Northern Sphere: A True Discount to Market

 

Northern Sphere’s tight share structure of 28.7 million shares at .05c gives it a paltry $1.5 million market cap when compared to the value that lays on the ground at both its properties. NSM’s outstanding exploration properties are on the verge of demonstrating their true value to the market through ongoing exploration efforts at Buckeye and Scadding respectively. The company benefits from a solid share base of industry professionals with proven investment success who share the belief NSM has district scale discovery potential.  The company trades on the CSE under NSM.

 

Black Diamond, Arizona:

  • Black Diamond has multiple targets with high grade silver, copper, zinc, manganese, gold.
  • Black Diamond historic production from two shafts (one 700 foot and one 250 foot deep), as well as many adits.
  • Assays as high as 1000 ounce per ton silver have been recorded and over 800 assays to date
  • Black Diamond has a significant copper anomaly with copper values as high as 7% and a high probability of a porphyry style deposit.
  • Black Diamond has never been drilled.
  • Soil geochem values as high as 10 ounce silver, over 1/2 % copper, zinc, manganese, and gold; in some cases mineable grades in the soils.
  • Manganese is classified as a strategic mineral
  • Black Diamond staking increased property by over 2000 acres due to increase in potential size of the anomaly. This brings the total to over 5800 acres.
  • Black Diamond is 16 miles from Globe Arizona home of Freeport McMorans Miami copper porphyry operation. Also 20 miles away from other copper porphyry deposits one of which produces 252,000 m lbs. copper and over 600,000 ounces silver and 30 miles from the Old Dominion Mine which had an average grade of 6 % copper and 3 grams gold .
  • Black Diamond has commenced preparation for small scale production on its leased Buckeye Property. This will generate revenue and thus reduce dilution. This has a planned production rate of 1000 ounces silver per day from an existing adit (10 ounce per ton head grade).
  • Site prep includes rehabbing of adit, evaporation pond, stockpile area for over 20,000 tonnes. Permits include explosive, full assay facility with high grade concentration.
  • Mobile equipment including 2.5 cu yard mucker, two boom jumbo, skid steer, generator, and haul trailer.
  • Black Diamond has a fully certified trained experienced mining team with multiple generations experience
  • Management is aware that a major mining company is staking up to Black Diamond property boundary.
