The first stage of the drilling program will test an underexplored komatiite sequence less than 5km south of the Silver Swan – Black Swan nickel mine in Western Australia.
According to Moho (ASX:MOH), the aim of the drilling is to provide geological context of different komatiite facies and footwall lithologies along the entire strike length as well as test the up-dip lithologies in relation to a weak below hole EM conductor in historic diamond drill hole 08NBSD0060.
Plans are also in place to examine potential nickel sulphide targets identified by recent geochemical analysis on three historic drill sections.
MOH managing director Shane Sadleir said the Black Swan South nickel prospect is “very much underexplored” by today’s standards.
“Moho’s experienced exploration team is looking forward to this RC drill program shedding new light on the potential of the area to host nickel sulphide mineralisation,” he said.
“Especially given the high grade indicated mineral resources recently reported by Poseidon at the nearby Silver Swan and Golden Swan nickel deposit.”
On June 6, MOH appointed Wouter Denig as chief geologist.
Wouter holds 30 years mineral exploration experience and was previously employed with Codrus Minerals as chief geologist, overseeing exploration targeting across Silver Swan South and Red Gate projects in WA.
Prior notable employment includes time spent in exploration leadership positions with companies such as Western Areas, IGO, MPI and Polaris Metals exploring for nickel sulphides, base metals, and gold throughout WA.
