Si6 Metals (ASX: Si6) is an exploration company operating in Botswana in Southern Africa and the Laverton Gold District in Western Australia.
In Botswana, Si6 is currently carrying out field exploration programs at its Maibele Project targeting nickel, copper, cobalt, PGE and silver mineralisation. The Maibele North nickel sulphide mineralisation is related to ultramafic intrusions within mobile belt rocks and is broadly similar in style to other ultramafic intrusion-related mobile belt nickel discoveries such as Nova-Bollinger (ASX:IGO), Julimar (ASX:CHN) and the globally significant Thompson Belt in Canada. These styles of nickel deposit are typified by a suite of associated metals that often include nickel, copper, cobalt and platinum group elements, all of which are present at Maibele North.
