White Cliff’s managing director Todd Hibberd said: “Further assays at Coronation Dam continue to demonstrate the high grade nature of the cobalt mineralisation.

“The mineralised zone is now over 600 metres long, 400 metres wide and up to 56 metres thick (average 20 metres).

“Further assay results should be available shortly and on receipt of the final drilling results the company will be in a position to complete a geological and mineralisation model and to select samples for metallurgical testing.”

Project surrounded by infrastructure

Coronation Dam is 90 kilometres south of Glencore’s Murrin Murrin mining operation and 45 kilometres south of GME Resources’ proposed Mt Kilkenny nickel-cobalt processing facility.

The project is surrounded by world class mining infrastructure and multiple operating mines.

Glencore is currently mining cobalt and nickel from the Murrin East open pit which contained an initial resource of 66 million tonnes at 1.1% nickel and 0.09% cobalt.
