Matsa Resources (ASX: MAT) has started a 558 line kilometre helicopter borne VTEM survey at its Symons Hill project in the Fraser Range, Western Australia.
The 96 square kilometre Symons Hill Project is located just 6 kilometres from Sirius Resources’ (ASX: SIR) new Nova deposit in Fraser Range, Western Australia that delivered a discovery intercept of 4 metres at 3.8% nickel and 1.42% copper.
The survey will cover the full 96 square kilometres area of the application at 200 metre spacing.
Infill lines will be flown as determined to be appropriate during the survey period.
VTEM has a proven track record in detecting massive nickel and other base metal sulphide mineralisation and Matsa believes the technique is well suited to the geological environment at Symons Hill.
Matsa has previously defined a 1.6 kilometre long nickel-copper soil anomaly at the project through infill sampling.
The Symons Hill tenement is bisected by a south-southwest trending fault, known as the Symons Hill Fault, which can be seen on aeromagnetic images to continue towards the Nova discovery.
