THE DRILL SERGEANT: Aston Minerals (ASX: ASO) reported on drilling results and exploration activities underway across the Bardwell and Olecranon prospects within the Boomerang nickel-cobalt target on the company’s Edleston project in Canada.
Aston Minerals said the intercepts encountered at the Bardwell prospect extended the drill tested strike to one kilometre, including:
159.71m at 0.36 per cent nickel and 0.013 per cent cobalt from 206.31m, including 83m at 0.44 per cent nickel and 0.016 per cent cobalt; and
95.61m at 0.28 per cent nickel and 0.011 per cent cobalt ending in mineralisation, from 425m.
The second drill hole at Olecranon, hit:
205m at 0.27 per cent nickel and 0.011 per cent cobalt from 332.95m – results of remaining 84.5m of end of hole currently pending.
“What is particularly encouraging is the fact that every single hole across the entire Boomerang Target that has tested the intrusive unit has hit nickel-cobalt sulphide mineralisation,” Aston Minerals managing director Dale Ginn said in the company’s ASX announcement.
“With the funding from our recently announced capital raising we have the capacity of drilling at a relatively broad spacing in order to define any additional high-grade zones of mineralisation which will form the basis of further resource definition drilling.”
