The executive chairman of St George said the company was focusing on scoping out the scale of the discovery with drilling continuing 24/7.
St George Mining (ASX:SGQ) has released an update on the drilling programme underway at the Investigators prospect – the largest of the three discoveries being drilled on the Cathedrals belt at the Mt Alexander project, located near Leonora in the north-eastern Goldfields of Western Australia.
As highlighted in the press release:
- A further six drill holes have been completed since MAD127 identifying extensions to the mineralized channel at Investigators
- Downhole EM surveys have commenced
- Off-hole EM anomalies have already been identified with potential for additional mineralization around the recently completed drill holes
Executive chairman of St George, John Prineas said:
“MAD126 and MAD127 intersected thick massive sulfides at Investigators with outstanding preliminary XRF values for nickel and copper. Laboratory assays are expected shortly. In the meantime, we are focussed on scoping out the scale of the discovery at Investigators with drilling continuing 24/7. Additional intersections of nickel-copper sulphides have now confirmed extensions to the mineralised ultramafic both laterally and at depth in the northerly down dip direction.
These ongoing strong drill results are a credit to the St George exploration team and further boosts our confidence in the three high-grade nickel-copper sulphide discoveries – Investigators, Cathedrals and Stricklands – which lie along a 4.5km stretch of the Cathedrals Belt.”
