The road to test the bulk of some exciting ultramafic sequences, which have been the focus of Sultan’s exploration at its Kulin Hill nickel project since early 2022, is now open.

Sultan Resources (ASX:SLZ) is close to finalising its plan to undertake exploration activities across the entire area to test the bulk of the layered ultramafic sequence and assess the full potential of the target.

A work program consisting of electromagnetic techniques, such as Fixed Loop EM or magnetotellurics (MT) to detect any areas of strong conductance that might mark the location of sulphide accumulation, is being considered.

Any conductors identified will be ranked and the priority targets drilled with either reverse circulation and/or diamond drilling methods.

Diamond drilling wraps up

At the same time, SLZ has wrapped up drilling at Kulin Hill where a single stratigraphic diamond hole was designed to further understand the layered ultramafic stratigraphy and follow-up positive aircore results generated in early November.

The hole was drilled to a depth of 489.4m and intersected 256m of layered ultramafic sequence.

The Kulin Hill magnetic anomaly has proven to contain ultramafic rocks by aircore drilling conducted by Sultan in January 2022, which returned anomalous results of nickel, chromium, magnesium, iron, sulphur, and cobalt which are indicative of weathered ultramafic lithology.

A full analysis of the geology of the hole and sample intervals selected will be provided to the market when complete.
