Dundas Minerals (ASX:DUN) will undertake further drilling should soil sampling results return elevated levels of nickel and copper from its namesake project in Western Australia.
The company recently completed an auger soil sampling program across new conductive aerial electromagnetic (AEM) anomalies in the northeast area at Dundas.
Dundas collected 167 soil samples at a 1.5m target depth below surface. Samples have been submitted for multi-element assay and results are expected in early December 2023.
Dundas says it now has a ‘considerable’ database of geochemistry for the project area.
This data consists of soils program data in 2021/2022, a program across its Central exploration target in 2022, and more recently from the northwest soil sampling program that was completed in April 2023.
These datasets will enable the company to reference the results from its planned sampling program against the baseline data and support the validation of any geochemical anomalies uncovered across the AEM anomalies.
Dundas Minerals is a battery minerals and gold-focused explorer focused on exploring the Kalgoorlie region and southern Albany-Fraser Orogen in Western Australia.
As of 30 September 2023, the company had $1.523 million cash and cash equivalents at hand, according to its latest quarterly report.
