Ta Khoa Nickel Project drilling
The company has recently begun second phase drilling with a second diamond drill rig mobilised at the Ta Khoa Nickel Project in northern Vietnam.
This second 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.
“Excited” to drill deeper targets
Blackstone managing direct 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 sulphide system at Ta Khoa.”
