Rainy Mountain Provides Update On Max (PGE-Ni) Property, Ontario
West Vancouver, British Columbia – October 15, 2010 – Rainy Mountain Royalty Corp. (the “Company” or “Rainy Mountain”) is pleased to report that its joint venture partner, Northern Shield Resources Inc. (“Northern Shield”) (TSX-V: NRN) will be commencing drilling on the Max Property later this month.
The Max Property is located in the James Bay Lowlands of northern Ontario and is a PGE (Platinum Group Elements) and Ni (nickel) exploration property. Northern Shield intends to proceed with a diamond drill program on the Max Property later this month where two holes, totaling approximately 700 metres, will be drilled to test a VTEM anomaly that coincides with a magnetic feature that management of Northern Shield interprets to be a conduit or feeder pipe. As reported by Northern Shield in its news release of October 13, 2010, the conduit appears to link a peridotite (ultramafic) body that Northern Shield drilled in 2008 that contained very high background levels of PGEs and nickel and the Wabassi North gabbro which shows below normal levels of PGEs and nickel. Northern Shield believes that the target is akin to Magma Metal’s Thunder Bay North project where significant PGE mineralization is hosted in conduits that link two larger mafic/ultramafic bodies.
The Max Property is currently a 50/50 joint venture between Northern Shield and Rainy Mountain and Northern Shield is the operator. Rainy Mountain has elected not to participate in the current drill program on the Max Property, and accordingly, Rainy Mountain’s joint venture interest will be diluted to 40.8% (and Northern Shield’s interest will be increased to 59.2%) assuming that $450,000 is spent on the Max Property drill program by Northern Shield.
