Southern Geoscience Consultants wish Auroch Minerals Limited (ASX: AOU) every success with their upcoming drill testing of the newly defined, strong DHTEM offhole conductor at the Valdez Nickel Prospect, which is scheduled to commence in early November.
A DHTEM survey of drill-holes VZRC002 & VZRC003 has identified a strong offhole conductor down dip and slightly north of these RC holes. The purpose of the deep RC drill-hole programme was to further test the Valdez Prospect following encouraging air-core (AC) results. The strength of the conductor was high at ~7000–14000S+, which is a signature consistent with the presence of well-developed sulphides. Geological logging of the holes defines that the conductor is coincident with an ultramafic-mafic lithological contact.
SGC looks forward to the forthcoming drill programme and will continue assisting with ongoing systematic EM survey efforts.
