Aldoro has made its single thickest massive sulphide intercept to date at the Narndee VC1 target with data indicating that it’s on the right track to find more.

The NDD0014 hole intersected 3.74m of massive sulphide mineralisation in a single interval along with 10.1m of heavy disseminated sulphide above this zone, which follows on the earlier NDD0013 hole that hit 11.55m of strong magmatic sulphide mineralisation including 3.35m of massive sulphides in five separate intervals.

Notably for Aldoro Resources (ASX:ARN), the hole indicates that the massive sulphides have “broken out” of the Narndee Igneous Complex and entered the footwall basalt sequence at this location.

This is significant as footwall basalt sequences are favourable locations for structural traps that host more significant accumulations of nickel-copper sulphides.

Further evidence of a structural trap site comes from the data indicating that the basal contact has deformed to a flatter orientation in NDD0014 while the veined sulphides on the periphery of the massive sulphide are chalcopyrite dominated, supporting its interpretation of remobilisation, and metal segregation alluded to in previous announcements.

The Narndee Igneous Complex is 90km south-southwest of Mount Magnet in Western Australia.

Forward plan

Aldoro notes that the reverse circulation rig will continue drilling at VC1 for another two to three weeks before demobilising to the Niobe project to complete lithium and rubidium resource drilling at its tenement.

The diamond rig has three holes to drill at VC1, before moving back to VC11 to test an off-hole nickel sulphide target there. A deep stratigraphic hole is also planned between VC3 and VC11.

It added that a high-power Fixed Loop Electromagnetic survey is continuing to screen for deeper or very conductive targets in the VC1, VC3 and VC11 areas.
