St George Mining targets nickel sulphides in new drilling at Windsor

St George Mining (ASX:SGQ) will soon recommence a nickel sulphide drill program at its wholly-owned East Laverton Project in Western Australia.

Added to this, St George will also be drilling for Tropicana and Gruyere style gold deposits.

The company will therefore have increased exploration news flow over the coming months.

John Prineas, executive chairman, commented:

“Further DHEM modelling at the Windsor target is very promising and supports the potential for massive nickel sulphide mineralisation.

“The very high conductivity of the target at Windsor continues to be very intriguing, with further XRF results of the cut drill core returning elevated nickel values around the depth of the EM conductor.

“The DHEM plate at Windsor is becoming an even more compelling target.”


Drilling details

The primary target of the drill programme will be the highly prospective DHEM target at Windsor.

Drill hole WINDD004 was completed in December 2015 to test the highly conductive DHEM plate WINRC016_v1 (210,469 Siemens).

There was no conductive material in the drill core capable of providing the extremely high EM response that was modelled for DHEM plate WINRC016_v1.

St George said that this suggests that WINDD004 came close to testing the conductive source but did not intersect it.

Further modelling of DHEM data from drill holes WINDD004 and WINRC016 continues to identify a highly conductive body that remains untested by drilling.

The very high conductivity/thickness response from the EM survey of this target, and the position of the EM plate on the contact of the prospective Windsor ultramafic, are consistent with this conductor being massive nickel sulphide mineralisation.

Additional targets at East Laverton will be included in the upcoming nickel sulphide drill program.
