Vancouver, BC, April 13, 2021 ─ Fjordland Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: FEX) (the “Company”) announces that upon the request of the Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg (KZA) Band Council and the recommendation of the KZA Moose Advisory Committee, Fjordland has agreed to suspend the VTEM helicopter survey in order to help protect the fragile moose population in the area. The KZA has agreed that the survey can recommence on or after August 15, 2021. Fjordland recognizes that this is a very sensitive issue to the KZA and wishes them the best in their endeavours to expand the moose population within their traditional territory.
James Tuer, Fjordland’s President commented, “We committed to ensuring that our actions match our ESG mandate. We look forward to building a healthy working relationship with the Kitigan Ziba Anishinabeg as we move this excellent project forward. Before we were made aware that the Moose Advisory Committee was concerned about the survey we completed the majority of the flight lines over the main Renzy target. A preliminary review of the data shows that there are some very interesting targets outside of the main Renzy zone to follow up on this summer.”
Darhlene Twenish, Chair of the KZA Moose Advisory Committee commented, “The KZA Moose Advisory Committee is pleased that Fjordland has agreed to postpone the aerial survey until mid-August which will definitely have less of an impact on the moose, especially the pregnant moose which are preparing to give birth. The KZA Moose Advisory Committee would like to thank Fjordland for the level of commitment shown on this very important and sensitive issue.”
Dylan Whiteduck, Chief of the KZA Band Council stated, “The KZA Band Council on behalf of the KZA Moose Advisory Committee and all KZA members would like to recognize the positive response from Mr. Tuer representing Fjordland. This is a good example of building a foundation for a future relationship.”
To date, Geotech’s VTEM Max has completed flight lines over the main Renzy target in conjunction with the Groundfloor EM survey. This has already generated a number of significant anomalies that will be the focus of exploration activities in the field this summer. The regional portion of the program will be completed once the survey recommences in August.
About Fjordland Exploration Inc.
Fjordland Exploration Inc. is a mineral exploration company that is focused on the discovery of large-scale economic deposits located in Canada.Fjordland is actively exploring three high quality nickel projects.
In collaboration with HPX and Commander Resources, Fjordland is exploring the South Voisey’s Bay “Pants Lake Intrusive” target which is a Ni-Cu-Co deposit analogous to the nearby Voisey’s Bay deposit located approximately 80 km to the north.
Fjordland has been granted an option by CanAlaska Uranium to earn an initial 49% interest in the North Thompson Nickel Belt project, situated 20 km. north of Vale’s long-life Thompson mine located in northern Manitoba. The project is considered prospective for Ni-Cu-Co-PGE magmatic sulphide mineralization analogous to the deposits hosting the historic mine.
Fjordland has an agreement to acquire 100% of the Renzy nickel copper project located near Maniwaki Quebec by spending $1.0 million over 5 years. The project encompasses the former Renzy Mine where during the period from 1969 to 1972, 716,000 short tons were mined with average grades of 0.70 % Nickel and 0.72 % Copper. The location of the Renzy Shear zone and the overall quantity of the mafic/ultramafic rocks in the area that carry sulfides with elevated concentration of Ni, Cu, and PGM’s bodes well for finding additional deposits.
