Ragnar's Ni project Sweden

Ragnar Metals kickstarts drilling at Tullsta Nickel Project in Sweden

Ragnar Metals (ASX:RAG) reports that Swedish drilling contractor Allroc AB has mobilised to its 100%-owned Tullsta Nickel Project in Sweden to begin drilling at the Granmuren nickel-copper discovery.

A 3,000m diamond drilling contract was awarded to Allroc AB who completed the two previous drilling campaigns for Ragnar during 2021, which led to the discovery of substantial Ni-Cu-Co mineralisation within the magmatic Granmuren gabbroic intrusion.

Stage one drilling will comprise three diamond core holes for 1,600m testing the ‘Keel Zone’ to determine the controls on the mineralisation, while stage two drilling will comprise of 1,400m, to test the up-plunge zone (‘Upper Keel’) between hole 21DDTS007 and the historical shallower mineralisation.

Commenting on the works program, Ragnar Executive Director Eddie King said: “There are very few global exploration opportunities where you have the ability to explore a large untested system and we are excited to follow up the success we have seen from our recent drilling and downhole induced polarisation and resistivity survey.

“There are very few global exploration opportunities where you have the ability to explore a large untested system”

Our trusted drilling contractor Allroc AB will oversee this 3,000m program campaign to focus on testing the depth potential of the Granmuren nickel-copper project and enhance the understanding of the geological model.

We look forward to updating the market as the drilling progresses and we are excited about the long-term prospects of Granmuren for Ragnar shareholders.”

The Tullsta Nickel Project is located about 110km north-west of Stockholm and comprises four contiguous granted permits and one application permit.

Granmuren was discovered in 2012 by drilling of a versatile time domain electromagnetic (VTEM) survey anomaly.
