Drill campaign underway
The fund-raising has strengthened St George’s balance sheet and supports an expansion of the drill campaign underway to test high‐grade nickel‐copper sulphide targets at the Mt Alexander Nickel-Copper Sulphide Project in WA.
St George has made multiple discoveries of high‐grade nickel-copper-cobalt‐PGE mineralisation across a 5.5-kilometre strike of the Cathedrals Belt, a large fertile belt that is interpreted to extend over 16 kilometres within the area of the Mt Alexander project.
The project is 120 kilometres SSW of the Agnew‐Wiluna Belt, which hosts numerous world‐class nickel deposits.
