ScandiVanadium Limited (ASX:SVD) has commenced a high-resolution helicopter electro-magnetic (HEM) survey over the company’s 100% owned Pascalle Gold Project in Western Australia.
HEM systems have previously been successful in identifying mineralisation in the Paterson Province, including at Rio Tinto’s Winu deposit.
Executive Chairman, David Frances, said the survey is expected to take six-to-seven days with NRG flying the Xcite HEM system at 100m line spacing, while simultaneously collecting high- resolution conductivity data and infilling historic magnetic survey
He said the shallow depth to basement for Pascalle enhances the effectiveness of the survey.
“We are excited to be able to hit the ground running with mobilisation of high-resolution geophysical survey so soon after completion of the acquisition of Pascalle Gold and Gnama Nickel Projects.
The system selected is the same as was involved in the discovery of Winu beneath similar depths of cover and will be vital in the planning of our maiden drilling campaign in H2 2020.”
