The 190 square kilometres of tenements means Wallbrook now covers 250 square kilometres of highly prospective geological units known to host significant district gold mineralisation.
Nexus plans to accelerate exploration across the enlarged underexplored project within WA’s Eastern Goldfields.
In this regard, the company has started high-resolution ground magnetic survey work and geological/structural mapping.
A gravity survey and gradient array induced polarisation (IP) survey are due to begin next week.
The new ground has been acquired for total consideration of $13,100 and a 2% net smelter royalty on all mineral product extracted and recovered from the tenements.
These new tenements are along strike immediately to the north, south and encompassed within the existing project tenements.
The Wallbrook project is considered underexplored and highly prospective for the discovery of significant gold mineralisation.
Recent drilling completed by Nexus has demonstrated this prospectivity.
Nexus Minerals’ Wallbrook Gold Project in WA’s Eastern Goldfields.
Exploration activities to be undertaken at Wallbrook over the coming six months include:
The drilling is expected to begin during the March quarter of 2019.
Nexus is actively exploring for gold deposits on its highly prospective tenement package in the Eastern Goldfields.
