Orion: Drilling Commences at Rok Optel

- August 7th, 2018

Drilling has commenced to test a high conductance target that is three times the highest conductance previously detected at Rok Optel.

Orion Minerals (ASX:ORN,JSE:ORN) has released an update on ongoing exploration at the Rok Optel nickel-copper target on the Namaqua and Disawell mineral rights in the Areachap Belt of South Africa.

Drilling has commenced to test a high conductance target that is three times the highest conductance previously detected at Rok Optel.

Managing Director and CEO Errol Smart said:

“Our first intersection at Rok Optel demonstrated that geological conditions exist for accumulation of large intrusive massive sulphide, nickel-copper bodies. The new ROK 4 conductor, which is three times higher in conductance than the ROK 2 conductor at drill hole OROD001 is very encouraging for the potential to discover a large massive sulphide body.”
