3.1 g/t Palladium Equivalent over 21.3 meters, within 2.4 g/t Palladium Equivalent over 48.5 meters at Kaukua South, LK Project, Finland
Drilling extends mineralization 200 meters on eastern side of Kaukua South, returning 1.0 g/t Palladium Equivalent over 51.0 meters
October 5, 2021 – Toronto, Ontario – Palladium One Mining Inc. (“Palladium One” or the “Company”) (TSXV: PDM, FRA: 7N11, OTC: NKORF) is pleased to announce Kaukua South drillhole LK21-088 intersected 3.1 g/t Palladium Equivalent (“Pd_Eq”) over 21.3 meters, within 2.4 g/t Pd_Eq over 48.5 meters, starting at 120 meters depth (Figure 1, and 2).
Additionally, with hole LK-21-087 returning 1.0 g/t Pd_Eq over 51.0 meters the mineralized zone of Kaukua South has been extended 200 meters east from previous drilling, (Figure 3). In aggregate, the Kaukua Trend which includes both the Kaukua deposit and the Kaukua South Zone, now boasts a drill defined mineralized strike length of 4.4 kilometers within a 7-kilometer-long Induced Polarization (“IP”) chargeability anomaly (Figure 1 and 3). Hole LK21-087 confirms that the eastern portion of the Kaukua Trend remains open for further expansion, particularly given a robust IP anomaly has been identified 1 kilometer east of hole LK21-087, see news release July 7, 2021.
Derrick Weyrauch, President and CEO of Palladium One highlighted: “Our Kaukua South discovery continues to deliver excellent results. Today’s drill results from the eastern portion of the Kaukua Trend is further evidence of a prolific mineralized system on our property which we plan to follow up with additional drilling.”
The eastern portion of Kaukua South has received significantly less drilling as we are focused on brining the western two kilometers of Kaukua South to a maiden Resource Estimate and expanding the initial 2019 Kaukua Mineral Resource Estimate. The eastern portion of Kaukua South has returned significant results in the past, such as hole LK20-017 which returned 1.56 g/t Pd_Eq over 22.2 meters (0.22 g/t Pd, 0.05 g/t Pt, 0.09 g/t Au, 0.32% Cu, 0.20% Ni, 119 ppm Co), see October 22, 2020. Today’s announcement of hole LK21-087, is the furthest step-out hole drilled to the east at Kaukua South which when combined with the strong IP anomalies indicate a strong potential to add additional resources along the eastern extension of the Kaukua Trend.
