Great Boulder will now look to advance its understanding of the Mt Venn prospect, which is part of the company's Yamarna project.
Mt Venn has drawn early stage comparisons to the Nova EM Conductor.
The company has now appointed a leading global consultant to help develop the geological model and exploration strategy at Mt Venn.
Great Boulder has appointed Tony Donaghy, an internationally respected nickel sulphide specialist in magmatic nickel-copper systems.
Donaghy has held senior nickel exploration roles with Falconbridge, Anglo American and BHP Billiton and has worked on a wide variety of nickel exploration, development and mining projects across the globe.
Donaghy is Principal Consultant – Nickel, at mining industry consultancy CSA Global.
Stefan Murphy, managing director, said the appointment of Mr Donaghy and the rapid collation of data over Mt Venn would maximise the company’s chances of success when field activities commence.
"The combination of Tony’s nickel expertise and CSA Global’s extensive experience will be invaluable as we develop the geological and mineralisation model for Mt Venn."
