Drilling at Leeuwin Metals’ William Lake project takes off in search of nickel sulphides
Link copied to
Within six weeks of listing, Leeuwin Metals has kicked off a 5,000m diamond drilling program targeting high-grade nickel, copper, and PGE sulphide mineralisation.
Initial drilling will be testing extensions to the known mineralised envelope at the William Lake project, as well as adding further definition to interpreted high grade nickel shoots within the 2km of strike already defined at W56.
The program will be coupled with the use of Down Hole Electro-Magnetics (DHEM) surveys to vector further drilling towards potential high-grade massive sulphide bodies.
Leeuwin Metals (ASX:LM1) says the interpreted shoots have an apparent 200m strike extent with a steeply southeast plunging continuity and with drilling designed to add further geological and geophysical constraints ahead of future resource definition drilling.
The William Lake Nickel Project is on the southern section of the world class Thompson Nickel belt in the Canadian province of Manitoba, around 250km south of the major regional mining centre of Thompson.
It is about 450km north of Manitoba’s capital, Winnipeg, accessible via Provincial Highway 6, a road that is a well-maintained all-season road.
This highway intersects the project area, with access to targets via forestry roads and historical exploration tracks.
The project area is also intersected by a high-voltage direct current transmission line that transports hydroelectricity from northern Manitoba to Winnipeg.
