St George Mining Limited announced its upcoming exploration program for the Windsor nickel sulphide prospect at wholly-owned East Laverton Project in Western Australia.
The drilling program is focused on testing near surface EM (electromagnetic) conductors, and targets EM plates modelled with a very high conductivity of +200,000 Siemens.
“The identification of widespread magmatic nickel sulphides within the high-MgO Windsor ultramafic – together with multiple and still unexplained strong EM conductors – supports the prospectivity of the channel for massive nickel sulphide mineralisation,” said John Prineas, George Mining Executive Chairman.
According to the release, strong conductors are located within a thick ultramafic channel where drilling has already intersected high-MgO ultramafics and magmatic nickel sulphide mineralisation, indicating that the channel is a highly prospective setting for massive nickel sulphides.
Furher, the company has confirmed the high-powered SAMSON EM survey at Windsor later this month. It will enable search for deep conductors at the basal contact of the Windsor channel and also provide additional EM data to further model the shallow EM targets.
“We are excited at this next phase of exploration at Windsor,” he concluded.
The follow-up diamond drill program will be scheduled once survey results are reviewed and modelling of EM targets is completed.
