March 1, 2011 Nortec Minerals Corp. has released drill results and confirmed the presence of gold mineralization in the northern part of the Company’s Tammela Project in southern Finland.
March 23, 2010 Nortec Minerals Corp. updated exploration activity in its three main projects in Finland. At Seinajoki Gold Project a follow-up drill program is planned to further delineate any down hole mineralisation encountered in the GTK drill core at Marttalaniemi and Ylijoki. Subject to any local administrative matters that need finalising, the Company hopes to be in a position to drill these targets middle to late April. At the Lantinen Koillismaa Project preliminary metallurgical test work on a composite of ore types from Kaukua was received. The conventional rougher flotation method yielded recoveries of more than 80% PGE + Au, more than 93% for Cu and 51% for Ni. The concentrate produced a product assaying 16% Cu + Ni and 60g/t PGE + Au. Although this is not yet confirmed, a concentrate of this grade should be attractive to nickel and PGM smelters, especially given the low value of 4% Magnesium Oxide (MgO). This also means that the initially planned PLATSOL™ process for higher recoveries of PGE metals may no longer be required. At the Tammela Lithium Project, a relogging and re-sampling programme on GTK drill core which returned results of 9m @ 1.03% lithium. These results further confirm the presence of significant lithium mineralisation at Kietyönmäki, which was originally documented by the GTK in 1985.
February 10, 2010 Nortec Minerals announced results from the relogging and re-sampling programme of historical drill core from the Tammela lithium-tin-tantalum Project in southern Finland. The best interecept was returned from Hole R310 with 9.00m at 1.03% lithium, 72g/t tin and 57g/t tantalum.
