The program is targeting extensions to known mineralisation within the nickel-copper wireframe; as well as testing the interpreted Alotta Deeps position, a shallow electromagnetic plate.
Alotta Project – drill hole location plan
Two additional massive sulphide intersections
A further two holes have been completed with both successfully extending and intersecting massive sulphides.
Hole ZA-19-04 was completed at 102 metres with 21.5 metres of visually logged massive and net textured sulphide mineralisation intersected from 49 metres to 70.5 metres downhole including 5 metres of massive sulphide from 49 metres.
ZA-19-04 massive sulphide comprising pyrrhotite with bands of wispy chalcopyrite at 53 metres downhole
Hole ZA-19-05 was completed at 102 metres with 25 metres of visually logged massive and net textured sulphide mineralisation intersected from 50 metres to 75 metres downhole including 10 metres of massive sulphide from 59.5 metres.
ZA-19-05 massive sulphide in contact with chalcopyrite mineralised brecciated feldspar porphyry at 59 metres downhole
Both holes ZA-19-04 and ZA-19-05 met their objective of extending the massive sulphide mineralisation and testing the extent of the footwall mineralised gabbro.
These holes and results follow on from Hole ZA-19-03 which intersected 41 metres of visually logged massive and net textured sulphide mineralisation.
No assays have been reported but Chase has commenced detailed geological logging, core-cutting and sampling.
Meanwhile, the drill rig has been relocated to Hole ZA-19-06 which is targeting the new shallow electromagnetic plate.
