// Nickel - Australia


The Pyke Hill Project is located 40km southeast of Murrin Murrin Nickel Operation. Cougar holds the nickel and cobalt laterite rights to the project, and in March 2008 published Measured plus Indicated Resource as follows:

Ni Cut-Off Grade Measured
Indicated Total
  Tonnes Ni Co Tonnes Ni Co Tonnes Ni Co
0.5% 6.0M 0.91% 0.06% 8,68M 0.89% 0.07% 14,69M 0.9% 0.06%
0.8% 4,4M 0.98% 0.07% 5,68M 0.98% 0.08% 10,09M 0.98% 0.07%

This resource is closed off in all directions. There are a set of variable grade vs tonnage figures, but further exploration or drilling will not significantly change this overall resource figure in terms of tonnes vs grade or contained minerals. The group considers this a valuable strategic asset and is focused on looking at all possibilities to advance this project.
