Continental has an option to acquire up to a 75% interest in St Stephen and acts as project operator. Continental VP Exploration Patricia Tirschmann remarked, “We are very encouraged by the recent drilling results that have returned the highest nickel grades intersected to date on the St Stephen Property. Our exploration has confirmed that the St Stephen intrusion is sulphide-bearing at numerous locations and that EM surveys are very effective at targeting the highest conductance and most sulphidic portions of the intrusion. The best nickel grades obtained so far are associated with mineralization occurring at or near the northern gabbro-metasediment contact in the vicinity of the Hanson Brook, G, Triple J and Roger’s Farm zones, and this area will be a focus of future exploration programs at St Stephen.”
