Azure Minerals Commences Exploration at Andover Nickel-Copper- Project

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Azure Minerals (ASX: AZS) has kicked off activity at the company’s recently acquired Andover nickel-copper project (60% Azure / 40% Creasy Group), in the West Pilbara region of Western Australia.

Azure Minerals said the work at the Andover project will build on work previously undertaken by its JV partner, the Creasy Group that had identified a target-rich environment for nickel and copper sulphide mineralisation.

Azure’s first exploration program at Andover is to comprise:

Ground electromagnetic surveys (FLTEM) to cover the two locations where previous drilling intersected significant quantities of nickel and copper sulphide mineralisation;
Additional FLTEM surveys to follow-up numerous other VTEM anomalies throughout the property;
Diamond core drilling program of 12 holes for approximately 3,000m;
Downhole EM (DHEM) surveying of the drill holes; and
Systematic geological mapping and sampling.

“Andover is a highly prospective nickel and copper project and we’re very excited to get on the ground and start our exploration program,” Azure Minerals managing director Tony Rovira said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.

“Mark Creasy and his team have provided strong foundations for a successful project and Azure is looking forward to building on this initial work.

“Since announcing this acquisition, our shareholders have expressed significant support for the project and our reasoning in coming back to Western Australia.

“I’m looking forward to advancing Andover and the continued development of our growth strategy.”
