Galileo Mining Ltd (ASX: GAL) has commenced geophysical surveying along strike from the Callisto discovery at the company’s 100% owned Norseman project in Western Australia.
Galileo’s managing director Brad Underwood commented; “We are very pleased to have started IP surveying at our Norseman project as it gives us the opportunity to identify new areas of mineralization within the 20km of prospective ground around the Callisto discovery. IP geophysical surveying is known for the detection of buried disseminated sulphide mineralization and we are aiming to locate good quality targets for drill testing. The Callisto deposit is a large intrusion within an extensive mafic-ultramafic sill complex. We believe the opportunities for additional mineralized intrusions within the Callisto belt and the adjacent Mission Sill prospect are significant.
The commencement of the geophysical survey includes high powered induced polarization (IP). The geophysical survey has commenced over the prospective Callisto horizon at Norseman, with initial survey data collection and interpretation expected to be completed in five weeks.
IP geophysics is extensively used in exploration targeting to detect undercover disseminated sulphide deposits similar to the Callisto nickel-palladium deposit, further IP surveying is planned within the 20km Callisto trend and the 12km long Mission Sill prospect.
“Initial results from the first round of IP surveying are expected in four to five weeks with further surveying planned in the first quarter of 2024. Samples from the recent RC drilling at North and South Callisto are currently at the laboratory with assays expected in December. We are excited to be exploring in this newly discovered mineralized belt and look forward to the results from our ongoing exploration programs.” Added Brad.
