Vancouver, B.C.: Aldridge Minerals Inc. (“Aldridge”) is pleased to announce that it acquired a 6.9 km2-license with potential for lateritic nickel mineralization. The project is named Ayranci and is located about 150 km east of the advanced large Caldag nickel laterite project, in western Turkey.
Turkish nickel-laterites are generally perceived as favorable for leaching because of the relatively low clay content. A preliminary exploration schedule for the Ayranci project foresees several reverse-circulation test holes to understand extent and thickness of potential nickel-mineralization.
Dr. Martin S. Oczlon, PhD Geo, a director of Aldridge and a Qualified Person as such term is defined in NI-43-101, has reviewed and verified the technical content of this release.
Aldridge is active in the exploration and development of gold and base metal projects in Turkey.
On behalf of the Board of Directors
