Accelerate Resources Ltd (ASX:AX8) will receive government co-funding of $140,000 towards future drilling and helicopter support at Thomas Creek and Henrietta prospects.

Earlier this week, Accelerate revealed it had drilled two significant intersections of nickel from the Young Henry nickel prospect within the Mount Read Project.

38.3 metres at 0.23% nickel and 17.7 metres at 0.19% nickel both came from the diamond hole YHDD001, which was testing a 300-metre long electromagnetic conductor.

Recapping a productive September quarter

The September quarter included the completion of the stage one drilling program at the Thomas Creek cobalt-copper prospect and the discovery of a large copper-cobalt porphyry system.

Some of the largest ore deposits in the world are porphyry style, often exceeding 1,000 million tonnes containing over 1 million tonnes of copper with by-products of gold, silver and/or molybdenum.

Naturally, these mines have long lives.

The nearby Mt Lyell mine has porphyry attributes and has been operating for over 100 years.
