Province Resources (ASX: PRL) reports that it has intersected a mafic intrusive body beneath historical supergene nickel-copper anomalism following an RC drilling campaign at its Gnama Nickel-Copper Project in Western Australia.
The company notes that recent results have confirmed the prospectivity of the project, indicating that the Gnama intrusion is of similar geochemical signature to the Eye Intrusion, which hosts IGO’s (ASX:IGO) Nova-Bollinger Deposit.
Speaking on the results, Province Resources Managing Director David Frances said: “Our initial drilling has confirmed our belief that the Gnama South Project is prospective for magmatic nickel-copper mineralisation.
“Our initial drilling has confirmed our belief that the Gnama South Project is prospective for magmatic nickel-copper mineralisation”
The geochemical signature of the intrusive body intersected is very similar to that of the Eye intrusion at Nova and focusses our future exploration aiming to identify the traps and feeder zones which are key targets in magmatic systems.”
In addition, a prospect scale review, including mapping of the intrusive body through bedrock drilling, is set to be completed to assess the effectiveness of historical surface electro-magnetic surveying.
The Gnama Nickel-Copper Project is located at the southern end of Western Australia’s Fraser Range, and comprises several recent nickel discoveries including Nova-Bollinger, Silver Knight and Mawson.
The project includes access to infrastructure and is well positioned within the nickel-copper-bearing Fraser Range Province between the Nova-Bollinger and Silver Knight deposits.
Province Resources announces that it will move forward with further RC and diamond drilling operations to map out the extent of the Gnama intrusion leading in to high-powered EM surveys.
