St George Mining Limited (ASX: SGQ) is preparing to kick off a diamond drill programme at the Windsor nickel sulphide prospect at its 100% owned East Laverton Project in Western Australia.
The drill programme will test three large EM conductors identified by the high powered SAMSON EM survey recently completed at the Windsor nickel sulphide prospect.
These strong, late-time EM conductors have geophysical properties consistent with massive nickel sulphides. Importantly, the conductors are in structural and geological positions that are favourable for the accumulation of massive nickel sulphide mineralisation.
The three EM conductors are named Windsor X1, Windsor X2 and Windsor X3. The first target to be drilled will be Windsor X3. Preparations at site for the drill programme have been completed, and the diamond drill rig is now scheduled to arrive at site by late next week.
St George Mining Executive Chairman, John Prineas said the large Windsor channel is highly prospective for massive nickel sulphides with previous drilling delivering numerous intersections of magmatic nickel sulphides.
“The new EM conductors are compelling targets and we are pleased that we could fast-track the drill programme.
“With nickel sulphide drill programmes testing new targets at both our Mt Alexander and East Laverton Projects, it’s a very exciting time for St George Mining.”
