A diamond core drilling program is set to focus on three previously identified anomalies at areas A, B, and C, which Errawarra believes represent the best opportunity to intersect massive nickel sulphides at Andover West.

The program has kicked off at Area B where modelling of the anomalies assumes drilling will intersect the target above a depth of 200m.

Errawarra Resources (ASX:ERW) says it selected diamond drilling as the preferred method due to the larger sample and more consistent material recovered.

This also allows for better visual inspection of the sample and identification of potential mineralisation.

Plans ahead

Once these three exploratory holes have been drilled, Errawarra says electromagnetic surveys will be carried out to identify conductive zones within the target horizons, which could represent massive sulphides and provide vectoring for additional holes.

Any new conductor targets identified will be subject to drill testing in a follow-up drill program.

Although the current focus of exploration at Andover West is for the discovery of nickel, the overall 100km2 tenement is also highly prospective for various other commodities, including lithium, and will be the subject of additional exploration activities over the course of 2023.
