Emu Nickel NL (ASX:EMU) Massive Sulphides Intersected At Woolgangie
Significantly, all five drill holes intersected massive to semi-massive sulphides in the target zones. The sulphides comprise pyrrhotite and pyrite with associated magnetite in a granitic host but with no economic metal grades identified at this stage. However, anomalous levels of copper and silver are present in minor chalcopyrite and tellurides.
Petrological studies show potassic metasomatism and localised hydrothermal alteration within the granitic host rocks. The anomalous levels of copper and silver are considered to be potentially significant however the nature of the mineralisation has yet to be fully determined. The massive sulphide intersections are associated with open-ended EM conductors which have not yet been fully tested. A programme of follow-up ground EM is planned, with the aim of outlining the extent of the EM conductors and identifying targets for further drilling.
Mincor Resources (ASX:MCR) has earned a 51% interest in the Kambalda West tenements from Image Resources and has elected to earn up to a 70% interest by sole funding further exploration.
