Aus Tin Mining hits high-grade nickel up to 1.6% in latest drilling at Mt Cobalt

Results confirm the occurrence of high-grade nickel at shallow depths in a new zone north of where previous drilling has been conducted.

Mt Cobalt is 40 kilometres west of Gympie in Queensland

Aus Tin Mining Ltd (ASX:ANW) has hit shallow high-grade nickel intersections of up to 1.6% at its Mt Cobalt project near Gympie in Queensland.

Recent drilling confirmed the existence of shear zones north and west of where previous drilling has been conducted.

The company will continue to explore this northern extension in due course.

In April 2019 Aus Tin completed a program of five diamond drill holes for a total of 153.6 metres to test potential extensions of mineralisation below and along strike from historical workings at Mt Cobalt.

A summary of the results is shown below:

Sampling was selective over the length of the holes reflecting intervals of poor core recovery due to the broken ground.

The shear zones observed support the previous interpretation of a possible continuation of the shear zone in a northwest direction and possible extension of the target zone.

Geological interpretation of Mt Cobalt


This drilling extended the target zone by a further 150 metres to a total of 500 metres long by 25 metres wide and open at depth.

Aus Tin will now focus on the next phase of exploration at Mt Cobalt which includes field reconnaissance and mapping for shear zones west of the target zone in order to develop further drill targets.
