Southern Geoscience Consultants are assisting Auroch Minerals (ASX: AOU) and are pleased to announce that recently completed deep DHEM / DHMMR surveying of NPDD008 has identified three significant offhole conductors directly below the Nepean Ni mine. The DHEM and DHMMR conductors together with the 78m of prospective komatiitic ultramafics intersected over four intervals in NPDD008 provide high priority drill targets with the next drill-hole commencing this week.
The DHEM survey successfully identified three off-hole conductors (centred ~540m, ~1025m and ~1230m DH) within a radius of approximately 100–150m from NPDD008 that are potentially indicative of well-developed NiS mineralisation. Furthermore, a clear DHMMR anomaly has been defined in the lower section of NPDD008 centred at 1245-1255m DH which may be related to the lowermost DHEM anomaly, adding further potential to this conductor as a drill target for NiS.
SGC looks forward to the forthcoming deep drill programme and will continue assisting with ongoing DHTEM and other geophysical survey efforts.
