(Vancouver) – Mark Jarvis, CEO of Giga Metals Corp. (TSXV – GIGA) (OTCQX – HNCKF) announced today that the drill program on its 16,858-hectare Corrente property in the state of Piaui, Brazil, has been temporarily suspended due to weather. Flooding in the area has subsided, but water tables have remained too high for effective drilling. The exploration program is expected to resume in February 2022.
Prior to the suspension of drilling, three (3) holes were drilled (GG-PD-01, GG-PD-02 and GG-PD-03) for a combined meterage of 322 metres (m). Hole 01 and 03 achieved their targeted depths (125m and 120m respectively) while Hole 02 was abandoned at a depth of 77m due to excess water volume and pressure.
To date, 50 samples representing 1.0m vertical sample intervals from selected zones of interest have been submitted to the ALS facility in Belo Horizonte, Brasil for copper and multi-elemental analysis.
