Fjordland Exploration concludes its exploration program at South Voisey’s Bay

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – September 15, 2022) – Fjordland Exploration Inc. (TSXV: FEX) (the “Company”) announces that, in conjunction with Ivanhoe Electric Inc.and Commander Resources Ltd., the Company’s drilling program on the South Voisey’s Bay nickel project located in Labrador is complete for 2022. The program was executed from the community of Hopedale Labrador. Initially, the plan was to complete up to 2,500 m of diamond drilling by the fall; however, operational and safety issues have reduced this distance to around 500m.

James Tuer, CEO of Fjordland, said: “This year’s program was the first significant exploration program since the 2017 and 2018 field seasons. The addition of Dr David Corrigan, who recently retired from the Commission Geology of Canada, has greatly improved our understanding of the exploration potential of the area. A number of samples and field observations have been collected to help us surmise the ultimate source of the nickeliferous rocks found in previous surface samples and drill core. Unfortunately, a number of these targets remain untested due to the poor performance of the drill program. In order to preserve a budget for next season, this year’s drilling program has been curtailed.

Hole 22-001 targeted the Gabbro Worm and reached a target depth of 420 m. It was designed to test a modeled conductive plate between 250m and 300m downhole and a modeled high density at 400m. Gabbro was intersected between 206m and 260m followed by paragneiss. Another section of gabbro was intersected 400m to the end of the hole. Hole 22-002 also targeted a solid conductive plate modeled at 300 m; however, the hole ended at 60m.

Once the tests have been received and the program has been reviewed by the partners, a plan for future work will be announced.
