Azure Minerals Drills New Sulphides at Andover Discovery

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Azure Minerals (ASX: AZS) announced the outcome ofrecent drilling activity at the company’s Andover nickel-copper project in Western Australia.

Azure Minerals informed the market that drilling in the western part of the VC-07 mineralised corridor on the Andover project intersected two new broad zones of nickel-copper sulphide mineralisation.

The first hole (ANDD0041) to be drilled into two newly identified DHTEM conductors intersected two broad mineralised zones sitting approximately 200 metres apart (downhole) and about 400m west of the first Andover discovery (VC-07 East).

ANDD0041 intersected:

36.6m of matrix and heavily disseminated nickel-copper sulphides from 428.15m; and
28.9m of matrix, stringer and disseminated nickel-copper sulphides from 644.1m.

The company is already drilling to follow-up the sulphide mineralisation intersected in ANDD0041 with testing along strike to the west (ANDD0042) and for up-dip mineralised extensions (ANDD0045).

Azure has completed 43 diamond drill holes at Andover, with 35 holes drilled at VC-07 and eight holes drilled at VC-23.

Two diamond drill rigs are testing the VC-07 West mineralisation and a third rig is continuing to in-fill drill the VC-07 East mineralised zone for mineral resource estimation purposes.
