THE DRILL SERGEANT: Rox Resources (ASX: RXL) received assay results from a recent aircore drilling program completed at the company’s Collurabbie project, 250 kilometres north of Laverton in Western Australia.
Rox Resources completed the program, which consisted 109 holes for 3,910 metres, testing several targets within its tenements.
Stand out results came from the Troy, Olympia North and Zeus South prospects, including:
12 metres at 0.8 per cent nickel, 0.03 per cent copper, 0.06 per cent cobalt from 8m; and
24m at 0.47 per cent nickel, 0.01 per cent copper, 0.02 per cent cobalt from 28m.
4m at 0.24 per cent nickel, 0.01 per cent copper, 0.02 per cent cobalt from 4m.
28m at 0.48 per cent nickel, 0.00 per cent copper, 0.03 per cent cobalt from 8m; and
20m at 0.33 per cent nickel, 0.00 per cent copper, 0.02 per cent cobalt from 8m.
Rox explained the Troy prospect lies along the north trending ultramafic Beta Sill where previous diamond drilling intersected 0.6m at 2.2 per cent nickel, 1 per cent cobalt.
The company has follow-up drilling planned for the next quarter.
“We continue to generate highly anomalous aircore results at Collurabbie, and it appears to be a significant province for nickel sulphides,” Rox Resources managing director Ian Mulholland said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.
“We will undertake further exploration drilling to better define and understand this mineralisation as soon as possible.”
