- Galileo Mining (GAL) begins aircore drilling at its Norseman Project within the Kambalda nickel belt of Western Australia
- Around 10,000 metres of aircore drilling will be undertaken with initial focus on five priority nickel-palladium targets
- Drilling is expected to take roughly six weeks to complete and will be followed up by reverse circulation (RC) and diamond drilling
- The RC and diamond drilling will follow up on anomalies identified during the aircore drilling as well as test down dip and along strike from existing intersections
- Galileo ends the day 8.70 per cent in the green with shares trading at 25 cents
Galileo Mining (GAL) has begun aircore drilling at its Norseman Project within the Kambalda nickel belt of Western Australia
The Norseman Project lies 10 kilometres from the town of Norseman and hosts prospects that are prospective for copper, cobalt and nickel mineralisation.
Around 10,000 metres of aircore drilling will be undertaken, with an initial focus on five priority palladium-nickel targets.
These targets have been subject to historical work, with up to 0.81 grams of palladium per tonne (g/t) and 0.25 per cent nickel intersected.
Drilling is expected to take roughly six weeks to complete, with results to follow thereafter.
Once the aircore drilling wraps up, reverse circulation (RC) and diamond drilling will be undertaken to follow up on any anomalies identified in the aircore drilling.
The RC and diamond drilling will also test down dip and along strike from existing drill intersections.
Managing Director Brad Underwood is excited to begin drilling at Norseman.
“The number of targets we have ready for testing gives us a strong pipeline of prospects which will lead to further RC/diamond drilling campaigns and with the ultimate goal of new resource discoveries,” Mr Underwood commented.
“10,000 metres of drilling allows us to cover the five priority palladium-nickel targets as well as drilling new prospective areas at the Mt Thirsty and Woodcutters prospects.”
Galileo has ended the day 8.70 per cent in the green, with shares trading at 25 cents in a $42.02 million market cap.
