Aldoro’s first two holes at the VC11 target at its Narndee Igneous Complex in WA have intersected prospective rocks and nickel-copper sulphides.

Notably, the visual sulphides and prospective rocks extend the nickel prospectivity of the Nandee out to VC11, 7km north of the VC1 target.

Aldoro Resources (ASX:ARN) added that downhole electromagnetic work carried out on the NDD0010 and NDD0011 holes had generated off-hole targets that will be drilled as soon as possible.

NDD0010 was drilled to a depth of 225.8m and intersected a thick package of variably mineralised high magnesium oxide ultramafics to a depth of 139.6m before hitting a zone of disseminated, semi-massive and breccia nickel-copper sulphide from a depth of 139.6m to 140.2m.

Likewise, NDD0011 intersected a thick package of high MgO ultramafics to a basal contact at 226m downhole with a zone of disseminated and veined nickel-copper sulphide that was intersected from 211.5m to 226m.

Other work

The company has received approval for a VTEM extension survey that will be carried out early in 2022.

This will screen the remaining areas of highly prospective stratigraphy and geochemistry results.

Potential nickel-copper-platinum group element magmatic sulphide-style targets will have top priority while copper-gold VHMS-style targets will be ranked next.

Aldoro adds that observations indicate the potential for deeper highly conductive bodies in the area between the VC1 and VC11 targets on the edge of a regional gravity high, with a coincident aeromagnetic high.

As such, the company has kicked off a program of large loop HPFLTEM as these types of targets are difficult to detect using VTEM.

It will also drill a deep stratigraphic hole to augment the HPFLTEM program by targeting the coincident gravity and aeromagnetic anomaly, directly between the VC3 and VC11 targets.

The rig has been mobilised back to the VC1 target for the drilling of three holes targeting off-hole DHTEM responses before it returns to VC11 to drill the off-hole target between NDD0010 and NDD0011.

It will then move to drill the deep stratigraphic hole between VC3 and VC11.
