With the final heritage survey received and the tracks to planned drill hole locations underway, the company says drilling is imminent.

Priority drill hole targets have been identified and modelled from the fixed loop electromagnetic (FLEM) survey completed in late 2022.

Errawarra’s (ASX:ERW) technical consultants, who have been involved in multiple major nickel discoveries in Western Australia, have provided recommendations for the locations of the drill collars for the initial testing of these priority targets.

The company has its eye on three priority targets, which have been designed to intersect the modelled conductor plates at target areas A, B and C.

Plan of attack

These conductor plates are considered to potentially represent nickel sulphide mineralisation.

Target area A which comprises three spatially related conductor plates will be the first target to be tested, with the initial hole designed to provide information on all three of these closely related plates.

Once these three priority drill holes have been completed, Errawarra intends to undertake down hole electromagnetic surveys (DHEM) aimed at identifying the most prospective zones within each target based on conductivity.

Any new targets identified will be tested in a follow-up drill program.

Part of same mineralised trend to Azure Minerals

The Andover West project and priority target location is along strike and part of a mineralised trend that runs through Azure Minerals (ASX:AZS) Andover project and into Errawarra’s Andover West project.

These priority drill hole locations are only around 1.6km from Azure’s Ridgeline prospect where they recently announced a highest intersection at that location of 18.2m at 1.93% nickel, including 9.3m at 2.58% nickel.

“We would particularly like to thank the Ngarluma Aboriginal Corporation (Ngarluma) co-operation in finalising with Native Title and Heritage Protection formalities,” Errawarra executive chairman Thomas Reddicliffe says.

“We will continue to work closely with Ngarluma personnel as we not only investigate our high priority nickel targets but also in exploring other areas of the company’s tenement.”

In addition to the maiden drill program, Errawarra also intends to explore their tenement for lithium bearing pegmatites given the success and recently announced investment by SQM in neighbour Azure Minerals.
