The company said drill hole MAD112 intersected high-grade nickel-copper sulfides at the Mt Alexander project in Western Australia.
Western Australian nickel company St George Mining (ASX:SGQ) has announced that further high-grade nickel-copper sulfides have been intersected in drilling at the Mt Alexander project, located near Leonora in the north-eastern Goldfields of Western Australia.
According to the press release, drill hole MAD112 was completed in the eastern section of the Investigators prospect to test a discrete downhole EM (DHEM) conductor that had been modelled within a large bullseye SAMSON EM anomaly with a strike of approximately 200 metres. The drill hole successfully intersected a prospective ultramafic unit between 102.9m to 116.65m downhole.
- 116.65m to 117.33 massive sulphides with average XRF readings of 8.6 percent nickel, 2.5 percent copper
- 117.33m to 117.46m ultramafic, internal dilution (<1 percent nickel)
- 117.46m to 117.6m massive sulphides with average XRF readings of 5.2 percent nickel and 2.6 percent copper
- 117.6m to 117.77m ultramafic, internal dilution (<1 percent nickel)
- 117.77m to 119.55m massive sulphides with average XRF readings of 6.4 percent nickel, 2.4 percent copper
