Southern Geoscience Consultants would like to congratulate Azure Minerals Limited (ASX: AZS) with their ongoing systematic drilling success at the Andover Nickel-Copper Project with the discovery of significant additional massive nickel-copper sulphides. 22 new drill holes have intersected multiple intervals of massive, semi-massive, matrix and heavily disseminated NiCuS at VC-07 East, with some impressive broad intersections and high grades of nickel and copper being reported in the recent massive sulphides.
Due to the ongoing success of the VC-07 drill program, Azure has further increased the scale of the resource drill-out, with completion now expected by the end of 2021 and release of the maiden mineral resource estimate in 2022.
DHTEM surveying along the VC-07 mineralised corridor continues to provide targeting for additional mineralised extensions, assisting in future drill planning. The Andover regional exploration program will focus on drill-testing other EM conductor anomalies identified on the property, for example at VC-23, VC-18, VC-41.
SGC Consultant Geophysicist Russell Mortimer is managing the ongoing DHTEM/geophysical targeting efforts.
