Si6 expands its inventory of base metal targets in Botswana
Link copied to
Si6’s recently completed AMT survey at the new Airstrip West prospect in Botswana which has identified numerous high quality untested anomalies.
This is significant given that AMT surveying has proven to be remarkably successful at mapping existing nickel-copper-cobalt-PGE sulphide mineralisation at the Maibele North prospect within the broader Maibele base metals project.
Results are pending from further surveying at Maibele North with Si6 Metals (ASX:SI6) progressing planning and approvals required for drilling, which is expected to be a combination of reverse circulation and diamond drilling.
It follows on the definition of multiple drill targets at the Dibete prospect earlier this month.
“The results in from the Airstrip West prospect continue to demonstrate how useful and successful the AMT survey technique is at identifying targets for us to further explore,” executive chairman Patrick Holywell said.
“From the 10 lines surveyed at Airport West, those of significant note include deep responses evident in Lines 2-3, 6 and 8-10 which all present priority drill targets.
“Importantly, Line 10 shows a prominent, south dipping anomaly that is possibly a further strike extension to the zones in Lines 8 and 9.”
The AMT survey at Airstrip West was designed to cover specific areas of the recently defined coincident gradient array and pole-dipole induced polarisation response that traverses a large area west of the previously drilled Airstrip copper-gold mineralisation.
Results demonstrate strong conductive anomalism close to surface and coincident with these previously defined responses.
Additionally, the ability of AMT to probe deeper than the two IP techniques has defined some outstanding anomalies that require drill-testing to determine the source of the response.
All anomalies identified to date are new and undrilled targets that have the potential to add further upside to Maibele.
