Mining Stock News: Nicola Mining (TSXV: NIM) (FSE: HLI) Announces Results of Select Grab Samples That Contain up to 1.3kg /Tonne Silver and 2.59 G/Tonne Gold


Vancouver, British Columbia - September 8, 2020 (Newsfile Corp.) ( Newswire) Nicola Mining Inc. (TSXV: NIM) (FSE: HLI), (the "Company" or "Nicola") is pleased to announce that it has received assay results from seven grab samples collected during phase one of the 2020 Program1 at its wholly owned Treasure Mountain Property, a fully-permitted high grade silver mine located approximately 90 minutes to its Craigmont Mill.

Seven grab samples were collected from five locations (see Table 1 and Map 1):

1. Treasure Mountain Open Pit: Historic pit area located on the crest of Treasure Mountain, near the JK Vein that was mined in 2011 (1 sample);

2. JK Vein: Vein with previous high-grade results located approximately 1.0 km east of the of the current mine development that continues to remain a high-priority focus of the Company (1 sample);

3. Scree2 Sample: In absence of a suitable soil sample, the Company gathered a representative rock sample for testing (1 sample);

4. Historic Trench: A historic trench located near the Scree Sample was observed and tested (1 sample);

5. Exposed Vein3: In its August 24, 2020 news release the Company described that it had identified a potential 1.2 km mineralized corridor that it had never previously explored (3 samples).

Highlights include the following:

All seven samples were sent to ActLab laboratory for assay located in Kamloops, BC.

The grab sample from the recently identified exposed veins (Sample 2100207) is encouraging as it indicates that these veins have the potential to host significant silver, gold, copper, and zinc grades. The upcoming portable drill results, which tested this mineralized structure, aims to provide an estimate on the true width and grade to the veins within this potential 1.2km mineralized trend.

Grab samples are transported by Nicola employees following a defined chain of custody, to Actlabs in Kamloops, BC. All samples are analyzed using Aqua Regia/ICP-OES. Samples with copper, lead or zinc content in excess of the standard detection limits were re-assayed by Aqua Regia/ICP-OES with higher detection limits.
