Strong conductor identified
On August 27, the company identified a ‘very strong’ off hole conductor during downhole electromagnetic (DHTEM) surveys at the Mawson discovery within the Rockford Project on WA’s Fraser Range.
The 25,000-30,000S off hole conductor defined during DHTEM surveying of hole RKDD021 is twice as strong as the 12,000-14,000S that the hole was designed to test.
This conductor is interpreted to be the extension of the lower 15.35 metres of net textured, heavy disseminated, and semi-massive nickel-copper sulphides intersected in the hole.
The position and orientation of the conductor fits with the structural analysis of the interpreted extension orientation of the main Mawson mineralisation.
