Testing Three Prospective Intrusions
Galileo Mining Ltd(ASX: GAL) has kicked-off an extensive programme of EM surveying aimed at adding to its already impressive range of targets at its flagship Fraser Range nickel project in Western Australia.
The surveys are designed to cover prospective intrusions (named Think Big, Backwood and Green Moon) located along strike from the Lantern area which is the target of upcoming RC and diamond drilling programmes.
Managing Director Brad Underwood said the new EM surveys will focus on zones both north and south of the Lantern prospects and will dramatically expand the footprint of exploration.
An EM survey completed in 2019 will be more than doubled by the current survey which will cover 46 sq. km of highly prospective ground. The survey is expected to take eight weeks to complete.
“Our aircore drilling has shown the presence of prospective intrusions under shallow cover rocks along strike of the advanced Lantern drill targets,” Mr Underwood said.
“We know that nickel and copper sulphides occur at the Lantern South prospect and we will begin drilling again this month. At the same time, we are undertaking an extensive programme of EM surveying aiming to identify new zones of mineralisation in an area that is displaying all the right signs of becoming a significant nickel exploration project.”
Galileo has Joint Ventures with the Creasy Group over tenements in the Fraser Range which are highly prospective for nickel-copper sulphide deposits similar to the operating Nova mine. GAL also holds tenements near Norseman with over 26,000 tonnes of contained cobalt, and 122,000 tonnes of contained nickel, in JORC compliant resources.
