Southern Geoscience Consultants would like to congratulate Western Areas Ltd (ASX: WSD) on their exciting new exploration results at the Sahara Prospect, West Gawler SA with the first diamond drill hole intersecting a very broad zone of nickel and copper bearing sulphides. 20WGDD005 has intersected nickel-copper sulphides over an interval of >200m (down-hole length) hosted by a thick pyroxenite intrusive body.

20WGDD005 was designed to test a moderate strength ~800-1100S MLTEM conductor and coincident magnetic high. DHTEM contractors have been mobilised to site, with a survey planned for this drill hole towards the end of this week. Results/vectors from the DHTEM survey will assist in optimising further hole locations to test for extensions of mineralisation along strike to the north and south.

SGC Consultant Geophysicist Russell Mortimer is managing the ongoing DHTEM efforts and West Gawler regional geophysical programme.
