READ: St George Mining intersects thick high-grade nickel-copper-cobalt-PGE mineralisation at Mt Alexander
Earlier this week the company obtained thick high-grade nickel-copper-cobalt-platinum group element (PGE) sulphide mineralisation in its phase-one drilling program at the Mt Alexander project in WA.
Best intersections were drilled at the Investigators prospect with results establishing further continuity of high-grade mineralisation both in the northerly down-dip direction and along the east-west trend of the Cathedrals belt.

St George also identified several new high-priority nickel-copper sulphide targets at the project as well as a large conductive feature with an interpreted strike of 300 metres.
The discovery was reportedly at the intersection of the Ida Fault and the Cathedrals Belt – an area which remains largely undrilled and is referred to as the West End prospect.
