Galileo Mining Ltd (ASX: GAL) has commenced an important drilling campaign at its 100% owned Subzero copper- gold prospect near the town of Norseman in Western Australia.
Galileo Mining Managing Director Brad Underwood said this second round of drilling will be testing targets along strike to the south of initial results which showed wide zones of low-grade copper mineralisation associated with anomalous gold results.
Mr Underwood said mineralisation and geology identified from the first round of drilling is indicative of a volcanic system with potential for VMS style copper-gold deposits.
The prospective geological horizon matches a conductive response that extends over 2.1km of strike length with the depth to the top of the conductors estimated between 80 and 110 metres below surface.
Targets with strong conductive responses from the 2km trend that correspond with interpreted geological structures will be tested for mineralisation in the current round of drilling. Assay results from the drill programme are expected to be available in December 2019.
This second round of drilling at our Subzero Prospect is building from our initial results which showed anomalous levels of copper and gold,” Mr Underwood said.
“As our understanding of the geology increases so does the chance of a discovery as we target those zones with the greatest potential for mineralisation. Galileo is committed to drilling prospective targets that have the possibility of yielding discoveries in order to create value for our shareholders.”
