SUDBURY, ON, Feb. 22 /CNW/ - Canadian Arrow Mines, Ltd. (TSXV: CRO) (the "Company") reports hole 2011-16 intersected 2.13% Ni over 4.9
metres including 3.75% Ni in 2.3 metres of massive sulphides. The hole
drilled in the Kelex Central West Zone completes the final component of
sample collection for metallurgical test work.
Kim Tyler, President of Canadian Arrow, said, "This concludes the
current phase of drill results at Kelex. The next important step is
processing of the metallurgical composite sample at Xstrata Process
Services of Falconbridge, Ontario. Results of this work will be
incorporated into various custom milling and concentrate off-take
options that we are actively pursuing. In addition, the drilling and
metallurgical results will be forwarded to an independent consultant
for inclusion in an updated NI 43-101 resource estimate. We are again
pleased that the limited amount of drilling conducted to date has had a
high rate of success. This bodes well for future exploration and ore

Mineralized diamond drill hole intervals reported are down hole core
lengths only. NQ diameter drill core samples are split in half; one
half being retained in its original core box and the second half sent
to an independent commercial laboratory for analysis. Samples are
analyzed by ALS Chemex Laboratories in Vancouver, BC. Samples analyzed
for base metals (nickel, copper, and cobalt) are digested with a four
acid digestion technique with an ICP-AES finish. Precious metals,
(platinum, palladium and gold), are fire assayed with an ICP-AES
