Nexus Minerals Ltd (ASX:NXM) will focus exploration efforts on its Wallbrook Gold Project in Western Australian during the current March quarter.

During the recent December quarter Nexus undertook ground-based exploration activities at Wallbrook, which it acquired from Saracen Mineral Holdings Ltd (ASX:SAR).

Wallbrook is considered underexplored and highly prospective for the discovery of significant gold mineralisation.

Drilling completed by Nexus in 2018 demonstrated this prospectivity.

Notably, within the project’s district 5 million ounces of gold resources are hosted in a similar geological setting to that underlying the Nexus tenement holding.

During the December quarter Nexus also completed the Newmont tenement acquisition, increasing the Wallbrook Project.
