THE DRILL SERGEANT: Azure Minerals (ASX: AZS) reported on the latest drilling carried out at the company’s Andover nickel-copper project in Western Australia.
Azure Minerals reported that the most recent hole, ANDD0005, intersected a 20.8 metres-wide zone containing intervals of nickel-copper mineralisation, including massive and semi-massive sulphides.
This latest mineralised intersection is located approximately 40m up-dip from a 38m-wide sulphide zone the company achieved in the previous hole ANDD0004.
All five holes Azure has completed to date intersected intervals containing substantial widths of nickel-copper sulphide mineralisation.
Each hole encountered massive, matrix and disseminated nickel and copper sulphides coincide with strong electromagnetic conductors detected by surface fixed loop (FLTEM) and down hole (DHTEM) electromagnetic surveys.
Azure has drilling continuing with ANDD0006 underway to test for down-dip mineralised extensions with a planned intersection point in the VC7 conductor plate approximately 50m below the sulphide zone intersected in ANDD0004.
This will be followed by step-out drilling to the west-northwest to test the along-strike extent of VC7.
Follow-up downhole EM surveying will then provide greater definition on the vertical / down-dip extent of the VC7 conductor.
Based on FLTEM surveying completed to date, 12 separate conductor anomalies have been identified within the Andover project area.
Drilling to test the highest priority conductors is being planned and, subject to drill rig availability, likely to commence in the first quarter of 2021.
