THE DRILL SERGEANT: Galileo Mining (ASX: GAL) is currently undertaking a large program of electro-magnetic (EM) surveying surrounding the company’s Lantern prospect in the Fraser Range region of Western Australia.
Galileo Mining reported the ongoing surveying recently inspected the Green Moon prospect, six kilometres from Lantern, where it claims to have identified another strong EM conductor to complement the existing targets at the Lantern East/South and North prospects.
The new conductor at the Green Moon prospect is located where near surface aircore drilling previously defined mafic intrusive rock types prospective for magmatic nickel-copper deposits.
The recently completed section of the EM survey covered 77.2 kilometres of survey lines being 790 stations over an area of approximately 31 square kilometres.
“Each program of exploration we undertake is bringing us closer to understanding the potential of the ground we are working,” Galileo Mining managing director Brad Underwood said in the company’s ASX announcement.
“Our ongoing EM surveys have revealed another strong conductor close to known zones of sulphide mineralisation at the Lantern prospect.
“Combining these results with the petrography data confirms that we are working in a highly prospective area.
“The targets at Lantern East and Lantern South are now ready for drilling and we are steadily developing a pipeline of new targets for further testing.
“The Fraser Range is an exciting province to be exploring with excellent chances of a high value nickel discovery being made.”
