Galileo Mining Ltd (ASX: GAL) has kicked off a diamond core drilling programme at the company’s highly prospective targets within the Fraser Range Nickel Belt in Western Australia.
Managing Director, Brad Underwood, said three significant nickel targets will be drilled including an electromagnetic conductor at the Lantern East prospect (Hole 1), a structural target on the margin of a major intrusion (Hole 2), and a disseminated sulphide target at the Lantern South prospect
This is our first diamond drilling programme at our northern Fraser Range project. It is also the first diamond drilling programme ever to be undertaken looking for nickel in our project area,” Mr Underwood said.
“As such, this greenfields project has great potential and is also very well located within the emerging new nickel province of the Fraser Range.
“We have approximately 500 metres of diamond drilling planned across three separate areas with each zone showing potential for sulphide mineralisation.
“This is an exciting part of the exploration process and we look forward to updating the market as results become available.”
