A multi-pronged exploration program has commenced at IMX Resources’ Ntaka Hill nickel sulphide project in south-eastern Tanzania as part of an aggressive campaign to “crack the code” of this potentially outstanding project.

The work will see joint venture partner MMG Exploration Holdings conduct a comprehensive analysis of the extensive geo physical data acquired and the drilling completed late last year at Ntaka Hill, together with extensive historical drilling, in order to identify targets characteristic of the high-grade nickel sulphide intersections recorded in previous drilling programs.

This work is expected to pave the way for the next key phase of drilling which is targeted to commence next quarter following the East African wet season. By marrying the new geophysical data base with the existing high-grade drilling results, the ability to increase understanding of the geology and mineralization at Ntaka Hill and replicate the existing high-grade results on a widespread basis will be greatly enhanced.

“There is clearly significant nickel mineralisation already at Ntaka Hill and this work has confirmed the potential of the entire Ntaka Hill-Lionja intrusive. The next phase of exploration is aimed at unlocking the code which controls that mineralisation so that we can identify the high-grade structures that will transform it into a world – class project,” says IMX Acting Managing Director John Nitschke.
