Galileo Mining Ltd (ASX: GAL) has commenced RC drilling at the company’s wholly-owned Norseman project in Western Australia.
Galileo’s managing director Brad Underwood commented; “RC drilling at Norseman is underway again as we implement our strategy of regular campaign drilling targeting new discoveries in this highly prospective underexplored province. Our exploration strategy incorporates campaign drilling, review and interpretation of results, integration of new information with geophysical data, refinement of drill targets, and then follow up drilling.
We believe this cycle of exploration activity gives us the best opportunity of making further discoveries. South Callisto and North Callisto prospects both show signs of mineralization from our earlier work and we look forward to the results of the current round of drilling.”
Galileo has planned a 2,500m drill programme with drilling to take around three weeks to complete and assay results expected in December. Drilling at South Callisto is designed to follow up on shallow results including;
- 3m @0.92g/t 2E2 (palladium + platinum) and 0.15% Ni from 6m (NRC116)
- 48m @0.27g/t 2E (palladium + platinum) and 0.24% Ni from surface (NRC117)
- Drill programme at North Callisto is focussed along strike of recent results:
- 32m @0.21g/t 3E4 from 60m (NRC463)
- 62m @0.22g/t 3E from 136m (NRC470)
