Moho continues to vector in on the nickel sulphide prize at its Silver Swan North project with the start of passive seismic surveying at the Black Swan South prospect.

The low-cost survey will investigate the weathering profile intersected by a recent reverse circulation hole, which is deeper and markedly different to other nearby drilling locations and coincides with a geophysical interpretation of northwest-southeast structure/shear zone.

It follows on Moho Resources’ (ASX:MOH) successful use of passive seismic to investigate regolith across the Silver Swan North project and to delineate the Arrowhead prospect at the Empress Springs project in Queensland.

A total of four lines totalling 3.2km will be acquired to investigate the weathering profile, with results expected in early August to be integrated with RC drilling data and assay results.

“This next phase of geophysical work at Black Swan South will assist Moho in defining the potential structure or channel development and give the company critical information on vectoring in on the historic Norilsk EM signature,” managing director Ralph Winter said.

“The ultimate aim would be to use this data to plan some strategic diamond holes to target the EM anomaly and also drill deeper to follow the dip of the Komatiite flow towards the southeast.”

Moho is also waiting on geochemical assays from the recent RC drilling.

Yandal activity

The company is also carrying out portable XRF analysis of drill samples at the Yandal tenements that were previously only assayed for gold.

While pXRF is no substitute for laboratory analysis, it is still capable of giving a clearer picture of whether nickel-copper-PGE mineralisation is present at the tenements.

Moho had acquired in November 2021 the exclusive rights to all nickel, copper, cobalt and platinum group elements on the 15 granted mining tenements held by Yandal Resources (ASX:YRL) near Silver Swan North.

These tenements cover an area of about 8.7sqkm of the significant folded mafic-ultramafic Highway Formation that is known to host nickel sulphide mineralisation including the nearby GSP and Ringlock deposits.

Upcoming work

The company plans to carry out downhole electromagnetic surveying over three of its recent RC holes and a historical diamond hole at Black Swan South.

It will also review and interpret seismic, DHEM surveys and RC drill data to generate a geological model which will aid the preparation of a diamond drill program.

This will be drilled below previous RC drilling and follow the southeast plunge of the potential structure or channel development as well as to test potential EM targets.
