Todd Hibberd, managing director, said: “The company is very pleased to be able to commence drilling at the Coglia Well cobalt and nickel project.

“The 3000 metre program is aimed at verifying existing results and defining the grade and scale of the cobalt and nickel mineralisation.

“Success from this drilling will lead to a major drilling campaign to define JORC compliant cobalt and nickel resources.”


Targeting areas of higher grade cobalt and nickel mineralisation

The Coglia ultramafic complex is part of a 100 kilometre-long trend of ultramafic rock running from Diorite Hill in the north to Mulga Tank in the south.

At Coglia Well, circa 2.5 kilometres of the 11.5 kilometres of strike have been partially drill tested, resulting in the identification of extensive cobalt and nickel mineralisation

White Cliff’s drilling program will target areas of higher grade cobalt and nickel mineralisation identified in previous drilling and will seek to extend mineralisation along strike to the south.
