Galileo Mining Ltd (ASX: GAL) has recommenced RC drilling at the company’s 100% owned Callisto discovery near Norseman in Western Australia.
The drill programme is designed to follow up on the widespread and consistent palladium-platinum-gold-copper-nickel sulphide intersections reported to the ASX in May, June, and July 2022.
The drill campaign consists of 50-metre spaced drill holes around the known mineralisation combined with regional scale drilling up to one kilometre north of the existing drill holes.
Following the approval of our work program from the Department of Mines (DMIRS), we are now able to begin testing the true extent of mineralisation discovered at Callisto,” Managing Director, Brad Underwood, said.
“We will be drilling on a 50-metre spacing around the previously announced drill results as well as stepping out up to one kilometre to the north.
“We know from the regional magnetics and outcrop mapping that the ultramafic host rock continues to the north over five kilometres. What we don’t know is how far the mineralisation extends within the host rock over that prospective strike length as the discovery does not outcrop.
“Now that drilling is underway we are in a strong position to begin testing the regional prospectivity. We believe the opportunity for discovering a large mineralised system is significant and we look forward to progressing this exciting new discovery.”
