Galileo Mining scopes out Norseman’s targets

Galileo Mining (ASX:GAL) has confirmed ‘strong’ chargeable anomalies ready for drill testing within the Norseman Project in Western Australia, via conducting an induced polarisation (IP) geophysical survey. 

Managing Director Brad Underwood says these targets are ‘significant’ as they are based on IP surveying, which is designed to look for disseminated sulphide, and on geological mapping which confirms the existence of the same rock sequence that hosts the Callisto deposit. 

“RC drilling is planned to commence in late April to test drill targets for economic mineralisation. We look forward to the start of the next round of drilling as we seek to develop a new mineral field in Western Australia.”

Galileo, which has a market capitalisation of $47.42 million, says drilling will comprise of 3,000m of RC drilling. The targets are between one and 5km from the 17.5 million tonnes (Mt) Callisto resource. 

The company is continuing to conduct IP surveying over an underexplored 20km strike length around the Callisto deposit to develop new targets for further drill programs later this year. 

Norseman, is a wholly owned asset of Galileo and contains the Callisto discovery and adjacent regional prospects, namely Jimberlana and Mission Sill. The project covers a 278km-square area in Western Australia. 

Galileo Mining is a Perth-based explorer focused on the discovery of palladium, platinum, nickel, copper, cobalt, and rhodium in Western Australia.
