Extensions to high-grade zones
Four diamond holes at the Investigators prospect within the Mt Alexander project were completed earlier this month, confirming extensions to known zones of high-grade nickel copper sulphides.
The thickest intersection included 15.1 metres of sulphide mineralisation comprising 14.8 metres of disseminated and blebby sulphides as well as 0.3 metres of massive sulphides, with the latter recording an average XRF reading of 8.1% nickel and 3.9% copper.
“Great reward for ongoing methodical exploration”
St George’s executive chairman John Prineas said: “Initial drill results have confirmed further continuity to the mineralisation at Investigators and support the potential to bulk-up the scale of the mineralised envelope in this area.
“The new EM conductors identified in the Cathedrals belt are a great reward for our ongoing methodical exploration of the belt.”
