Emerging WA nickel company St George Mining (ASX: SGQ) has intersected more massive nickel-copper sulphides during drilling at its Mt Alexander project, near Leonora. The latest hits, with drill hole MAD114 at the Investigators prospect, returned average XRF values of 7% nickel and 5.5% copper. Drilling is now under way with hole MAD111 to test a conductor which was modelling with conductivity of 140,000 Siemens.
- MAD114 intersects massive nickel-copper sulphides at Investigators further confirming the 320 metre plunge of mineralisation on the MAD60 section towards the north
- 7%Ni and 5.5%Cu average XRF values for the massive sulphides in MAD114 (based on portable XRF analysis with laboratory assays pending)
- Drilling of conductor MAD111: X1 – modelled with an 80 metre down dip extent to the north and conductivity of 140,000 Siemens – has commenced
Emerging Western Australian nickel company St George Mining Limited (ASX: SGQ) (“St George” or “the Company”) is pleased to provide an update on the drill programme underway at the Mt Alexander Project, located near Leonora in the north-eastern Goldfields.
MAD114 was completed at the Investigators Prospect to test for an extension of the massive nickel-copper sulphides intersected in MAD108 (for details of MAD108 see our ASX Release of 23 July 2018 High Grade Nickel-Copper Sulphides in First Drill Hole).
MAD114 has intersected the host ultramafic unit between 193.30m to 206.33m downhole that included the following sulphide mineralisation:
