Orion: Massive Sulfide Stringer Veins Intersected at Rok Optel

- October 24th, 2018

Rok Optel is located ~80km north-west of the flagship Prieska zinc-copper project

Orion Minerals (ASX:ORN) has released an update on its ongoing regional exploration program at the Rok Optel nickel-copper-cobalt-platinum group element target, located on the Namaqua and Disawell prospecting rights in the Areachap Belt, South Africa.

Rok Optel is located ~80km north-west of the flagship Prieska zinc-copper project

As highlighted in the press release:

  • 10m-thick zone of vein, stringer and massive sulphides hosted in magmatic breccia intersected from 397m to 407m down-hole in new diamond hole OROD003.
  • Five stacked intrusive-hosted mineralized zones now identified in drilling at Rok Optel.
  • New intercept can be correlated with recently drilled zones over a 1.25km strike extent of the intrusion, which remains open both to the north and south.
  • Rok Optel is a focus point for repeated ultramafic intrusions with massive sulphide vein injections and therefore has excellent potential for the discovery of bulk massive sulphide mineralization.
