Blackstone Minerals Limited Intersects Massive Sulfide Nickel at King Cobra Discovery

Blackstone Minerals Limited (ASX:BSX) is pleased to announce the intersection of 0.55m of Massive Sulfide Vein (MSV) mineralisation within a 2.5m wide tremolite-rich dyke within the broader 58m down hole intersection of disseminated nickel sulfide mineralisation at the King Cobra discovery. Blackstone’s drilling of the King Cobra discovery continues to deliver shallow intersections of high grade disseminated nickel sulfide (DSS) mineralisation including 39m @ 1.1% Ni and 28m @ 1.2% Ni from near surface. The King Cobra discovery remains open down dip and along strike to the north-west and south-east and has been traced with drilling over 200m of strike length.


  • Blackstone’s drilling at the King Cobra discovery has intersected massive sulfide nickel mineralisation within the broader disseminated nickel sulfide mineralisation (DSS) (see Figures 1 & 3 and Tables 3 & 4 for full details);
  • Blackstone continues to intersect shallow, high grade disseminated nickel sulfide mineralisation at the King Cobra Zone (KCZ) with new significant results including 39m @ 1.1% Ni and 28m @ 1.2% Ni from near surface (see Figures 2 & 4);
  • Blackstone’s drilling continues to intersect the King Cobra Zone (KCZ) over 200m of strike length and the discovery remains open down dip and along strike to the north-west and south-east (see Figure 2);
  • Summary of significant results from the Ban Phuc DSS drilling of the King Cobra Zone (KCZ) and Ban Duoi Zone (BDZ) since the previous announcement (see Table 1 & 2 for full details):
