RC drilling at Leinster Nickel Project
Auroch has started reverse circulation drilling at the recently acquired Firefly and Sinclair North prospects within the Leinster Nickel Project in Western Australia.
The 1,000-metre drill program will be Auroch’s first phase of exploration on these prospects after entering into a binding agreement with Jindalee Resources (ASX:JRL) to earn up to 70% of a four tenement package.
These two prospects are on tenement E36/895, which is contiguous to the company’s 100%-owned E36/899 tenement that hosts the Horn nickel sulphide prospect.
Managing director Aidan Platel said: “We are excited to commence our first phase of exploration at the Firefly and Sinclair North prospects, where excellent nickel results in the weathered profile from historic RAB drilling have never been followed up with deeper drilling.”
