Delta Blue A Compelling Target
Galileo Mining Ltd (ASX: GAL) has commend a reverse circulation (RC) drilling campaign at the company’s Delta Blues prospect within the Fraser Range Nickel Belt in Western Australia.
Managing Director, Brad Underwood, said Delta Blues prospects DB1 and DB2 represent compelling targets with EM anomalies at both locations supported by positive interpretations of magnetic, gravity, and aircore drilling data.
The top of the conductor at DB1 starts at 175m below surface while the top of the conductor at DB2 is just 125m below surface.
RC drilling is planned to intercept the top of the modelled conductors to provide information on the source of the modelled EM anomalies. EM anomalies can have various sources including mineralised sulphides and it is anticipated that the current RC drilling will provide critical information for the design of follow up diamond drilling expected to occur later in the year
“We are very excited to have started the first deep drilling campaign at our Delta Blues prospect. The quality of the modelled EM conductors combined with the magnetic and gravity interpretations provide a strong case for potential sulphide mineralisation,” Mr Underwood said.
“RC drilling will deliver a good test of the near surface sections of the DB1 and DB2 targets. The present drilling campaign is expected to take two weeks to complete, and we look forward to updating the market as results become available.”
