Sipa Resources Ltd (ASX:SRI) has completed a drilling program at the Akelikongo prospect in the Kitgum Pader base metal project in northern Uganda, intersecting significantly enriched nickel and copper sulphides.
The drilling has defined a wide 30 metres to over 100 metres zone of disseminated sulphides ranging 0.2% to 0.5% nickel and 0.1% to 0.2% copper.
The sulphide grain size and abundance generally increases down hole towards the basal footwall mineralised zone.
Further drilling at Akelikongo will be planned after the current batch of assay results are returned.
Additionally, another drill program is underway targeting the Broken Hill-style lead-zinc-silver mineralisation at the Pamwa prospect within the Kitgum Pader base metal project.
Since Sipa started exploration at Kitgum Pader, it has collected over 60,000 geochemical soil samples leading to the discovery of numerous sulphide-derived base and precious metal prospects.
In addition to the Ugandan project, preparations are underway to commence exploration at Sipa’s newly acquired Paterson North copper-gold project in Western Australia.
