Resource Mining Corporation (ASX:RMI) has begun a maiden 2,000m reverse circulation (RC) drilling program at its Liparamba Nickel Project in southern Tanzania.
Under the drilling program, Resource Mining plans to drill 12 RC holes to a depth of 150m. The program is focused on coincidental anomalies from recent audio-frequency magnetotellurics (AMT) and airborne electromagnetics (AEM) data, alongside recent geological field surveys and previous soil surveys.
Resource Mining says the program is aimed to target and test for the presence of nickel sulphide mineralisation within ‘large’ and ‘significant’ co-incidental geophysical and geochemical mafic targets uncovered by recent surveys and previous testwork completed by BHP (ASX:BHP) and Albidon (ASX:ALB).
Commenting on the drill program, Resource Mining Corporation Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Andrew Nesbitt says: “With the completion of the initial geophysical program and continuing exploration works at the Liparamba Nickel Project, the prospectivity of the area remains extremely high and has confirmed numerous specific targets that match the previous explorer’s interpretation.
“We are confident that this drill program will successfully advance the company’s strategy of locating significant nickel resources within our Tanzanian project portfolio”
