The 795-metre diamond hole hit multiple zones of mineralisation including 9 metres at 2.56% copper, 0.37% nickel, 0.06% cobalt and 1.32 g/t PGE within a broader zone of 40 metres at 1.16% copper from 343 metres.
Another zones measured 6.2 metres at 3.61% copper, 0.11% nickel, 0.03% cobalt and 0.51 g/t PGE from 435.8 metres within 22 metres at 1.80% copper from 435 metres.
Cassini’s managing director Richard Bevan said: “CZD0099 has exceeded our expectations.
“We’ve intersected several mineralised zones that were effectively blind to previous geophysical modelling, and this presents real opportunities for further exploration success.
“It’s also worth recognising that whilst this is only our 6th hole at the One Tree Hill Prospect, it is showing all the hallmarks of a major mineralised system with the potential to add future mine life and value to the West Musgrave Project.
“The exploration results continue to confirm the excellent prospectivity and potential of the project.”
A deposit at One Tree Hill could boost Nebo-Babel economics
Alongside regional exploration, the JV partners are undertaking a pre-feasibility study (PFS) on the Nebo-Babel deposits within the West Musgrave Project.
Any resource able to be delineated at One Tree Hill has the potential to support project economics for the development of the Nebo and Babel nickel-copper sulphide deposits.
Proactive caught up with the company in May 2019 for an update.
