Sama Resources (“Sama” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:SME) today announced that it has commenced a 3,000-line/kilometer airborne helicopter time domain electromagnetic and magnetic survey (“HTEM Survey”) over the Samapleu and Yepleu areas on the Company’s Côte d’Ivoire Nickel-Copper-Cobalt-Palladium Project in Côte d’Ivoire, West Africa. The HTEM Survey will be flown over the area at 200-meter line spacing and is being carried out by Geotech Ltd., Canada, using their Versatile Time-Domain Electromagnetic (VTEM) geophysical system.
The HTEM Survey will assist Sama with its geological interpretation of the entire Samapleu and Yepleu project areas. The HTEM Survey is aimed at targeting new sectors with the potential for additional nickel‑copper sulphide mineralization from the surface to several hundred meters at depth.
The Company’s exploration objective is to delineate massive sulphide reservoirs that could be the source of high-grade nickel–copper-palladium lenses intercepted in shallower boreholes at the Samapleu deposits.
