This program will be at the Paint and Crusader prospects after high-priority drill targets were identified by geological mapping combined with other exploration data.

Paint and Crusader targets

The Paint prospect is considered prospective for Karari-style mineralisation as it shows numerous similarities to the Karari deposit of Saracen Mineral Holdings Ltd (ASX:SAR).

Crusader is considered prospective for steeply dipping sheeted mineralisation associated with sub-vertical vein sets, amenable to open pit mining.

Nexus’ RC drill program will concentrate on mineralisation from surface to a vertical depth of around 100 metres.

The recently acquired Templar prospect will also be subject to ground exploration activities during this quarter.

Historical data review and database integration of the complete 250 square kilometre Wallbrook tenement package is ongoing in 2019.
