Growth-focused Western Australian nickel company St George Mining Limited (ASX: SGQ) today reported further positive results from the extension and infill drill program underway at its flagship high-grade Mt Alexander nickel-copper-PGE project, located in the northern Goldfields of WA.
MAD210 was completed by diamond drilling to test an EM conductor (22,500 Siemens) at the Stricklands deposit. The drill hole intersected nickel-copper sulphide mineralisation from 102.7m to 106.3m downhole, confirming further mineralisation approximately 35m to the west of the existing mineralised envelope.
The mineralised intercept in MAD210, together with the result of MAD209 – which intersected nickel-copper sulphides from 112.9m to 118.1m downhole – confirms that the Stricklands deposit is open to the west, north and north-west with potential for further drilling to delineate additional mineralisation.
St George Mining’s executive chairman John Prineas said, “The expansion drill programme is designed to extend the footprint of the four shallow, high-grade discoveries in the Cathedrals Belt – Stricklands, Cathedrals, Investigators and Radar.
“MAD210 has again shown that this near surface mineralisation remains open and that extensional drilling can increase the volume of mineralisation to be considered for inclusion in a potential mineral resource.
“The ongoing results are very encouraging and we look forward to continuing the diamond and reversecirculation expansion drill programme.”
