Completion of hole MTD026 (EIS2) at Mulga Tank Ni-Cu-PGE Project, with the deepest hole ever drilled reaching 1,548.3m depth and intersecting ~1,400m thickness of high MgO adcumulate dunite ultramafic.
Observed disseminated nickel sulphide mineralization cumulatively over >950m in MTD026, validating WMG's lopolith-shaped geological model for the Mulga Tank Ultramafic Complex.
Expert Geophysics contracted to conduct MobileMT survey in August, using advanced technology to map deep resistivity for massive sulphide deposits at the Mulga Tank Complex.
Aqua regia testwork on selected intervals from holes MTD012, MTD022, and MTD023 show a high percentage of nickel in sulphide form, with over 97% similarity in results compared to four acid digest.
Shallow intersections of mineralization from the top 200 vertical metres of each hole suggest potential for open pit mining.
Positive results will lead to further metallurgical beneficiation testwork to demonstrate the recovery of nickel sulphide into a high-grade concentrate, supporting the viability of the Mulga Tank Project.
Completion of diamond drill hole MTD024 at the Mulga Tank Ni-Cu-PGE Project, with a ~450m assemblage of komatiite ultramaﬁc and interbedded basalt, chert, and sulphidic black shales.
Intersection of remobilised nickel sulphide veinlet towards the base of the hole, with DHEM and MLEM geophysical targets explained by intersections of banded-semi-massive pyrrhotite within sulphidic black shales.
Validation of the geological model of the Panhandle area as a komatiite channel sequence, but highly variable assemblage suggests the hole is located in a distal ﬂank environment away from the main channel; drilling ongoing with MTP025 in progress.
