Avira intercepts additional Puolalaki  mineralisation

Avira Resources (ASX:AVW) has intercepted additional, shallow massive sulphide mineralisation at its Puolalaki Nickel-Copper-Cobalt-Gold Project in northern Sweden, following the company restarting drilling activities. 

Managing Director David Deloub says the company is continuing 3D modelling of the mineralisation intercepted to date over the next few months, as Avira gains more data and assay results. 

“Although true widths are yet to be determined, the shallow mineralisation intercepted to date has been over significant widths (11 to 36m) and we’re equally excited that the massive sulphide mineralisation is also supported by significant widths of disseminated sulphide mineralisation.

Recent re-logging of a number of historic drillholes completed by NAN in 1998, has also shown that the host high-Mgo mafic-ultramafic intrusive is much more extensive than previously indicated by historic logging, significantly increasing the scale of the prospectivity at Puolalaki.” 

The company reports drillholes PUO23006, 007, and 008 all intercepted shallow massive sulphide mineralisation, similar to an interception from drillhole PUO23002 in April 2023. 

Prior to the Christmas break, Avira completed 4 holes for 438.5m. The company began drilling the fifth hole on Monday night (8 January 2023). 

Avira Resources is a minerals explorer focused on its Swedish and Western Australian projects considered prospective for battery metals and critical minerals.
