AUSTIN, Texas, April 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Enverus, the leading oil & gas SaaS and data analytics company, has released its Q1 summary of M&A activity, which revealed a substantial collapse as oil prices plunged to 18-year lows.

Canada Nickel Company Announces Discovery of New Palladium-Platinum Zone and Latest Nickel Intersections at Crawford, Provides Update on Transaction with Noble Mineral Exploration Inc
Highlights Separate PGM Zone with grades up to 1.7 g/t of palladium + platinum over 7.5 metres delineated from near surface to a depth of 500+ metres across a strike length of 600 metres – remains open to the west and at depth Westernmost hole to date CR19-25 (130 metres west of existing resource), collared within higher grade zone, showed continuity of higher-grade zone with 0.34 % nickel across 44 metres Easternmost hole CR19-27 yielded 1.07% nickel and 2.0 g/t palladium + platinum across 1.5 metres outside existing nickel resource indicating potential for higher grade nickel along fault on eastern boundary TORONTO, April 6, 2020 /CNW/ - Canada Nickel Company Inc. (TSX-V:CNC) ("Canada Nickel" or the "Company") today announced the discovery of a new palladium-platinum zone from drilling conducted at its 100% owned Crawford Nickel-Cobalt Sulphide Project ("Crawford") near Timmins, Ontario. These results represent the remaining holes from the initial drilling campaign on the Main Anomaly at Crawford. The Main Anomaly remains open to the west and at depth. Mark Selby, Chair and CEO of Canada Nickel commented "With palladium prices in excess of C$3,000 per ounce and few new palladium discoveries globally, the discovery of this new near-surface multi-gram palladium-platinum zone sitting parallel to Crawford's existing nickel-cobalt-palladium resource further underscores Crawford's significant potential and provides additional optionality to unlock value for shareholders. With less than 20% of the main structure drilled and multiple targets on the property, we look forward to the next phase of exploration where we will begin to explore the main nickel-cobalt-palladium and PGM Zone across the 8 kilometre strike length of structure." The Crawford Nickel-Cobalt Sulphide Project is located in the heart of the prolific Timmins-Cochrane mining camp in Ontario, Canada, and is adjacent to well-established, major infrastructure associated with over 100 years of regional mining activity. PGM Zone The PGM Zone sits at the north contact between the peridotite and pyroxenite layer which extends across the full length of the Crawford structure (delineated to a length of 1.7 kilometres) and sits immediately to the north and parallel to the maiden nickel-cobalt-palladium resource at Crawford announced on February 28, 2020. Five holes intersected this zone beginning at the bedrock contact to a depth of 500 metres across a strike length of 600 metres. The structure remains open to the west and at depth (See Table 1 for summary of results).

Canada Nickel has insufficient information to determine the attitude, either of the ultramafic body or of mineralized zones within it. True widths will be less than the core lengths by a number of factors Additional Drilling Results The results from the final 3 holes of the initial campaign continue to extend the nickel-cobalt-palladium mineralization within the Main Anomaly at Crawford. Hole CR19-25 extends the higher-grade zone to the west by a further 130 metres including 0.34 % nickel across 30 metres from bedrock surface. The easternmost hole CR19-27 ended in the fault which faults off the Main Anomaly to the East. This hole yielded the first intersection in excess of 1% nickel highlighting the potential for higher grade nickel mineralization from either primary or remobilized nickel structures in close proximity to the fault. Hole CR19-29 intersected both the PGM Zone and main nickel-cobalt mineralization and was designed to infill one section of the drilling. See Figure 2 for plan view of recent drilling and Table 2 for a summary of drilling results.
