    I see Titan have recently extended their resource figures from 44000 tons of nickel metal to 106,000 ton.

    And now more drilling results.

    Titan Resources NL is pleased to report further nickel intersections
    from its RC and diamond drilling program at its Widgiemooltha North
    prospect, south-west of Kalgoorlie.

    At the McEwen deposit, where the recently announced resource figures
    were upgraded to 7,263,000 tonnes at 0.86 percent nickel, 3 RC holes
    intersected significant mineralisation. These are WDC20 which
    encountered 9 metres at 1.39% Ni from 69 metres down-hole and 4
    metres at 2.33% Ni from 84 metres, with both intersections being
    outside the boundaries of the extended resource. WDC22 encountered 8
    metres at 1.19% Ni from 187 metres and 2 metres at 2.25% Ni from 226
    metres, again with both intercepts being outside the resource, while
    WDC24 located 3 metres at 1.20% Ni from 112 metres, within the
    resource.

    The accompanying table includes full location and survey data on
    these and previously reported significant intercepts at the Armstrong
    deposit.

    In addition the diamond drill program at Armstrong has made several
    significant intersections for which assay data are not yet available.
    Four diamond core holes are currently awaiting core cutting and
    analysis. WDD1 and WDD2 lie outside of the current resource envelope,
    while WDD3 and WDD4 are within the current boundaries. All 4 holes
    have intersected disseminated sulphides with the most significant
    being WDD1, which intersected 13 metres of heavily
    disseminated/matrix sulphides from 134.7 metres down-hole, the last 2
    metres of which were massive mineralisation. WDD2, which is also
    outside the resource envelope, intersected disseminated sulphides
    that graded into a massive zone about 20cm wide at the base before
    encountering a dolerite dyke, which appears to have displaced the
    massive ore. WDD3 intercepted 5 metres of disseminated sulphides from
    105 metres and WDD4 located 5 metres of disseminated sulphides
    including 2m of heavily, disseminated matrix sulphides from 164
    metres down-hole. Drilling is continuing.

    RAB drilling of the 2,500 metres strike length of the highly
    prospective basal contact zone between Armstrong and McEwen commenced
    earlier this week.

    Three rigs are now working at the Widgiemooltha prospects. Further
    results will be reported when available.
