The second drill rig has deeper drilling capabilities to test the multiple new targets generated from a recently completed induced polarisation (IP) survey.
The shallow drill rig will continue to test sulphide targets at the Ban Phuc nickel mine area within the project.
Ban Phuc is an existing modern underground nickel mine built to Australian Standards for operation between 2013 and 2016, which is currently under care and maintenance.
Consistent news flow over coming weeks
Blackstone’s managing director Scott Williamson said: “We’re excited to be drilling our deeper targets generated from the recently completed IP survey at the Ta Khoa Nickel Project, we look forward to further consistent news flow from both drill rigs over the coming weeks.
“We remain well funded to test the multiple new targets generated from the maiden IP survey and continue to unlock the full potential of the extensive Nickel sulfide system at Ta Khoa.”
