The diamond drill campaign consisted of 1,380 metres and all holes intersected nickel, copper and cobalt grades extending the mineralization 4,500 metres along the magnetite-rich gabbro-norite trend.
BlueBird Battery Metals (TSXV:BATT) has announced results from the first five diamond drillholes from the company’s phase one exploration program at its Canegrass project in Western Australia.
As highlighted in the press release:
- All holes during the phase one drill program were targeting VTEM anomalies. The diamond drill campaign consisted of 1,380 metres and all holes intersected nickel, copper and cobalt grades extending the mineralization 4,500 metres along the magnetite-rich gabbro-norite trend.
- BBDD001 targeted VTEM-06 and intersected 1.20 percent nickel, 0.41 percent copper and 0.10 percent cobalt over 1.70 metres within a magnetite-rich gabbro-norite with two zones of massive to semi-massive sulphides. Mineralization consists of pyrrhotite, pentlandite, pyrite and minor chalcopyrite within a broader zone of disseminated sulphides. The mineralization occurs within 100 m of surface.
- BBDD002 targeted VTEM anomaly CG-039 which is approximately 2,500 metres south of VTEM-06 and intersected 1.33 percent nickel, 1.26 percent copper, 0.10 percent cobalt over 4.90 metres within a magnetite-rich gabbro-norite. Mineralization is within a large massive to semi-massive sulphide zone which includes pyrrhotite, pentlandite, pyrite, and chalcopyrite.
- BBDD003 to BBDD005 were designed to verify historical, anomalous nickel-copper-cobalt mineralization towards the southern edge of the claim at VTEM target CG-02. The 3 diamond drillholes intersected multiple thin mineralized pyroxenite zones containing disseminated to semi-massive lenses of chalcopyrite, pyrite, magnetite, and pentlandite.
