Location: c. 30km south-west of Nova nickel-copper-cobalt mine owned by IGO Ltd
Over 100 sq km of tenure covering the Fraser Range gravity ridge.
Project at early stages of exploration with good historic surface geochemistry coverage, but limited surface EM coverage
Targets identified and exploration strategy planned out.
Exploration Goal: Discover the next “Nova”
Scheduled start date: November 2020
Priority areas identified for testing based on:
Favourable geological units for hosting sulphide mineralisation
Surface EM surveying planned to follow up these areas and test for conductors that may be related to nickel-copper sulphide mineralisation
Phased exploration program planned to systematically develop and test exploration targets over the tenements including heritage surveys, drill testing, and down-hole EM to follow-up geophysical anomalies
On-ground exploration to commence November 2020 with 15 profiles of MLEM surveying
MLEM surveying to continue with a survey every quarter for the first 12 months. Each campaign is likely to entail 3-4 weeks of surveying, with any anomalies infilled while the crew is in the field.
