Adavale now has multiple drill targets to choose from at its Kabanga Jirani and Luhuma nickel projects in Tanzania after completing a helicopter-borne electromagnetic survey.

The survey was carried out over nine priority areas and ongoing technical assessment is underway to prioritise the drill targets based on data from the HEM survey combined with key exploration results from previous gravity survey, soil geochemical and drilling programs.

Adavale Resources (ASX:ADD) expects to shortly release an expanded drill targeting generation and prioritisation overview before carrying out reverse circulation and diamond drilling from late September or early October.

“The Heli EM program has been a great success generating a rich pipeline of targets for our team to refine and prepare for our upcoming drilling campaign,” executive director David Riekie said.

“The flexibility to receive and interpret the data in advance of the formal report from our survey contractors means the identification of anticipated drill locations and engagement with local drilling contractors has been fast tracked.

“We are drill-ready and very much looking forward to this campaign. The key exploration foundations have been prepared and we are looking to a similar level of success with our drilling.”

Nickel address

Both Kabanga Jirani and Luhuma are located close to London-based Kabanga’s namesake project, which is the largest development ready nickel deposit in the world.

This makes the 1,145km2 Kabanga Jirani project especially intriguing given that it is immediately adjacent to Kabanga and was selected based on strong geochemical and geophysical signatures from previous exploration undertaken by BHP.
