Rox Resources’ laboratory assays from the Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling program at its Fisher East nickel sulphide project, 500km north of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia have confirm new nickel sulphide discoveries.
The RC drilling program (18 holes for 2,619m) intersected nickel sulphide mineralisation at shallow depths in two separate locations, Cannonball and Musket, along the strike of the Camelwood ultramafic unit. Each mineralised zone is over 200m in strike length, indicating a southern strike continuation of the mineralisation at Camelwood where a mineral resource of 1.6 Mt @ 2.2% Ni has been defined.
Managing Director Ian Mulholland commented, “These results extend the strike length of potential mineralisation up to 3km in a north-south direction, with mineralisation remaining open at depth and largely unexplored. This demonstrates to us that we are dealing with a whole new, regional-scale mineral field at Fisher East (Camelwood-Cannonball-Musket) and not just one isolated deposit.
“We will follow these results up with further RC and diamond drilling to evaluate the potential to significantly expand the nickel sulphide mineral resource inventory, extending from Camelwood through Cannonball to Musket.”
