Toro Energy Limited (ASX: TOE) has recommenced diamond drilling on the company’s wholly-owned Dusty Nickel Project in Western Australia.
The Project is located in the Yandal Greenstone Belt, some 50km east of the world class Mt Keith nickel deposit and 15km NE of the Bronzewing Gold Mine.
The recommencement of drilling highlights the company’s focus on targeted, cost effective activities that will add value to both its Wiluna Uranium Project and the Dusty Nickel Project.
The 2023 diamond drilling programme will recommence at the Dimma nickel sulphide discovery, the most southern of the four massive and semi-massive nickel sulphide discovery zones so far intersected at the Dusty Nickel Project.
Tree holes have so far been completed at Dimma, TED41, TED42 and TED54. All three of these drill holes have intersected massive Ni-sulphide defining a zone of continuous massive Ni-sulphide over some 112m of dip extent. There have not yet been any other drill holes completed in the immediate vicinity of Dimma and so the Dimma Ni-sulphide discovery remains open up-dip, down-dip and north and south along strike.
The Dimma discovery is located approximately 400m to the SSE of the recent Jumping Jack discovery, along strike of the Dusty Komatiite, which is in turn located approximately 400m SSE of the Houli Dooley discovery and 800m SSE of the original Dusty discovery.
All four discoveries are in the same geological setting, at the base of the Dusty Komatiite, which magnetic geophysics suggests is some 7.5km, approximately 4km of which remains untested by drilling.
All four deposits remain open up dip towards the surface and at depth and three remain untested along strike. Due to difficult drilling conditions, only a single drill hole, the discovery hole, has been successfully completed at Houli Dooley to date.
