Sandfire is farming into Morck Well with the right to earn a 70% interest in the project area.
There has been one diamond core hole and three reverse circulation holes drilled by Sandfire following the intersection of highly encouraging mineralisation from aircore drilling in May 2018.
Whilst the full set of assays from the recently completed follow-up program are yet to be received, the sedimentary package intersected in the latest drilling is considered to be highly prospective.
Furthermore, Sandfire’s aggressive exploration approach of systematic aircore drilling will be further enhanced by Moving Loop Electromagnetic (MLEM) surveying across the entire prospective sequence through the Morck Well area.
The MLEM survey has now commenced, as an additional targeting tool.

Systematic exploration across the remainder of the Morck Well project area is continuing and further updates on drilling assays and geophysical surveying will be reported in due course.
Auris chief operating officer Mike Hendriks said: “We continue to be encouraged by the progress being made to date at our Morck Well JV – with the recent round of follow-up drilling further underlining the highly prospective nature of this area.
“Sandfire Resources are continuing to advance exploration activities within the Morck Well area and we look forward to reporting on results from future aircore drilling and the MLEM geophysical surveying in due course.”
