Dundas Minerals Encounters Broad Zones of Nickel Mineralisation at Jumbuck

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Dundas Minerals returned from the 2022 RIU Sydney Resources Roundup to report reverse circulation (RC) drilling results from its Jumbuck nickel prospect program.

Dundas Minerals carried out the drilling in February as part of exploration activities for nickel, copper and gold in the prospective Albany-Fraser Orogen, Western Australia.

Results included:

22JURC009 (135m)
0.23 per cent nickel and 0.22 per cent chromium over 34m (25m – 58m), including 7m at 0.38 per cent nickel and 0.16 per cent chromium (26m 33m); and

22JURC010 (135m)
0.14 per cent nickel and 0.27 per cent chromium over 33m (71m – 103m).

“The results from these two holes, which at 135 metres are still relatively shallow, are most encouraging,” Dundas Minerals managing director Shane Volk said in the company’s ASX announcement.

“It is still early days at Jumbuck, however the nickel enrichment within the Mafic intrusive is significant.

“The next steps for us will be the completion of detailed magnetic inversion models, analysis of district gravity data (including a possible infill gravity survey) and revisiting the SkyTEM electromagnetic data for conductive anomalies.

“The objective of this work is to develop at least one diamond drill hole target to test beneath the near-surface enrichment zones.”
