High Grade Nickel-Cobalt Identified at Kurnalpi
- New target identified from review of historic drilling data with strong nickel-cobalt intercepts;
o 42m @ 1.25% nickel, 0.07% cobalt from 24 metres including 6m @ 1.78% nickel, 0.20% cobalt from 28 metres
o 10m @ 0.70% nickel, 0.11% cobalt from 30 metres including 3m @ 0.92% nickel, 0.21% cobalt from 34 metres
o 8m @ 0.58% nickel, 0.20% cobalt from 24 metres
o 12m @ 0.76% nickel, 0.10% cobalt from 36 metres, and
o 19m @ 1.08% nickel, 0.07% cobalt from 33 metres including 6m @ 1.17% nickel, 0.11% cobalt from 35 metres
- EM geophysics and infill drilling planned as soon as possible
On the tenement, historic drilling (predominantly aircore) carried out on nominal 80 x 80 metre centres over a linear magnetic anomaly has intersected strong nickel-cobalt intercepts over an area 250 metres wide by 600 metres strike within weathered ultramafic rocks, including (downhole widths - see Table 1 and Figures 2 and 3 in link below);
- 42m @ 1.25% nickel, 0.07% cobalt from 24 metres in KURC22 including 6m @ 1.78% nickel, 0.20% cobalt from 28 metres,
- 10m @ 0.70% nickel, 0.11% cobalt from 30 metres in KURA38 including 3m @ 0.92% nickel, 0.21% cobalt from 34 metres,
- 8m @ 0.58% nickel, 0.20% cobalt from 24 metres in KURA400,
- 12m @ 0.76% nickel, 0.10% cobalt from 36 metres in KURA406, and
- 19m @ 1.08% nickel, 0.07% cobalt from 33 metres in KURA42 including 6m @ 1.17% nickel, 0.11% cobalt from 35 metres.
Maximum values from any one single sample are 2.04% nickel (2 metre composite sample in KURC22), 0.33% cobalt (4 metre composite sample in KURA400) and 0.28% copper (2 metre composite sample in KURC42). The presence of elevated copper may be indicative of nickel sulphide mineralisation within the target area.
Mithril is greatly encouraged by the newly identified nickel-cobalt target at Kurnalpi and plans to undertake EM geophysical surveying and infill drilling as soon as possible once statutory approvals are in place.
