Sama Resources (TSXV:SME) reported intercepting 8 meters of nickel-copper-palladium sulphide at its Company’s Samapleu Project in Côte d’Ivoire. Notably, the tip of the intercept area is situated 11 meters below surface.

As quoted in the press release:

  • Hole SM44-428267 intersected 54 m of mineralized pyroxenite, grading 0.96% nickel, 0.76% copper and 0.74 g/t palladium, including a combined 8.0 m of massive sulphide grading 4.08% nickel, 2.43% copper and 2.92 g/t palladium at the Samapleu Main deposit.
  • Ongoing infill drilling at the Samapleu Main and Extension 1 deposits using both of Sama’s 100% owned Coretech CSD 1300G drill rigs.

Further describing the drill program, Sama’s release stated:

The current drilling program is part of a 3,000-to-4,000-meter infill-drilling program aimed at reducing drill spacing and increasing the strike length of the already known mineralisation at the Samapleu Main and Extension 1 deposits. An updated NI 43-101 technical report is provisionally scheduled to take place following completion of the proposed program, in the second half of 2015.

A second borehole SME25-133537 drilled at the Samapleu Extension 1 deposit intersected 33 m of mineralized pyroxenite with disseminated to semi-massive accumulations of chalcopyrite, pentlandite and pyrrhotite sulphides including a combined 5.05 m of semi-massive sulphide mineralization.

The massive sulphide mineralization is characterised by large granular aggregates of nickel, copper and iron sulphides, named pentlandite, chalcopyrite and pyrrhotite respectively. Pentlandite occurs together with pyrrhotite, while the chalcopyrite, being the third mineral of global abundance, appears either mixed with the pentlandite or as late sulfide centimetric veins crosscutting the pentlandite-pyrrhotite material.

Contacts between the massive sulphide lenses and the mineralised pyroxenite host are irregular, but sharp with brecciated textures, indicating that the massive sulphide material has intruded the pyroxenite host.
