2019/2020 Exploration and Drilling Programmes
A 3,000m diamond drilling programme is underway at the Saints Nickel Project, targeting untested near-resource electromagnetic plates and possible down-plunge extensions to existing high-grade nickel sulphide mineralisation at the St Patricks, St Andrews and Western Contact target areas.
- The defined St Andrews and St Patricks ore bodies at Saints have only been sparsely drill tested at depth, over approximately 1.6km of strike.
- Outside of the existing resource areas there has been very limited drilling deeper than 50m with approximately 650m of strike of the footwall contact between St Patricks and St Andrews receiving only 5 drill-holes.
- The ~650m of strike between St Andrews and St Patricks represents a highly-prospective area requiring further exploration, the Company is planning to complete the drilling programme with DHEM data to define new targets for the next phase of drilling.
