Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - June 3, 2024) - Nicola Mining Inc. (TSXV: NIM) (FSE: HLI) (OTCQB: HUSIF) (the "Company" or "Nicola") is pleased to announce that it has forwarded funds to High Range Exploration ("High Range") allowing the latter to commence road work at the Dominion Creek Gold / Silver Project ("Dominion").

Nicola forwarded High Range $50,000 on May 24th, 2024, to expedite road work, which is expected to augment bulk sample1 exploration work upon receipt of a Bulk Sample Permit. Nicola maintains a 75% economic interest in Dominion.

High Range received a Letter of Support from First Nations for the bulk sample on June 27, 2023. Subsequently, High Range summitted revised engineering reports to the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation in conjunction with its revised 10,000-tonne bulk sample application.

The Company announced in its October 14, 2020, news release that it had conducted a 9.7 kg surface sample which returned the following grades:

  • 62.1 grams per tonne Au
  • 320 grams per tonne Ag
  • 23.4% Pb, 12.4% Zn

Chip sampling from the vein's surface outcropping also returned high grade gold and silver assays (October 26, 2020 news release). The Dominion Project was slowed down because of COVID and due to submission of a revised Bulk Sample Permit application, which included engineering adjustments to the foot and hanging walls. Work will commence in early June.
