Galileo Mining Defines New Fraser Range Nickel Targets

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Galileo Mining (ASX: GAL) has defined three new, strong, and highly prospective conductors by way of electro-magnetic (EM) surveying at the company’s Delta Blues prospect in the Fraser Range region of Western Australia.

Two targets have been identified at the Delta Blues 1 prospect displaying high modelled conductivities up to 4,100 Siemens and occur between 300 and 600 metres from sulphides identified in previous aircore drilling.

The third target at the Delta Blues 2 prospect has a high modelled conductivity of 2,700 Siemens.

The three large and strong conductors have been modelled from the EM data at shallow depths between 95 and 170 metres below surface.

Infill EM surveying of the newly identified targets is planned to be undertaken in conjunction with ongoing regional surveying at the Delta Blues prospect.

This infill surveying is expected to be completed this quarter with drill planning to commence upon receipt and interpretation of the supplementary data.

“The new results from Delta Blues confirms our view that this is one of several top-quality prospects we have identified in the Fraser Range,” Galileo Mining managing director Brad Underwood said in the company’s ASX announcement.

“We are developing a solid foundation of prospects with great potential for nickel mineralisation.

“It has been just two years since our first aircore drilling program on our greenfields tenements in the northern Fraser Range.

“We are now in a position where we have targets ready for drill testing at our Lantern prospect and new targets developing at our Delta Blues and Green Moon prospects.

“Our drilling programs in 2021 are designed to test these targets with the aim of making new discoveries.”
