Southern Geoscience Consultants wish Auroch Minerals (ASX: AOU) every success with their upcoming drill testing of the newly defined, discrete and strong MLTEM conductor ~1.8kms south of the Nepean Ni mine, which is scheduled to commence immediately on site.
The modelled EM plate has a strong conductance ranging between 5,000 – 15,000S, a range typical of the conductance of well-developed massive to semi-massive sulphide mineralisation. The modelled conductor is relatively shallow at 60-100m vertical depth, and it has a strike length of 120m, which is consistent with Kambalda-style komatiitic channel mineralisation. The discrete conductor is coincident with a magnetic high feature interpreted as a serpentinised komatiitic ultramafic. Importantly, there are no historic drill-holes in the vicinity of the conductor. The size, strength, and location of this untested conductor make this a very high priority drill target.
SGC looks forward to the forthcoming drill programme and will continue assisting with ongoing DHTEM survey efforts.
