    • 8 metres at 0.16% cobalt and 1.0% nickel from surface
    • 56 metres at 0.06% cobalt and 0.90% nickel from 20 metres
    • 32 metres at 0.05% cobalt and 0.80% nickel from 44 metres and;

  • Further assays expected shortly

White Cliff Minerals Limited (“White Cliff” or the “Company”) is pleased to report new assays from a 5,000 metre RC drilling campaign completed at its 100% owned Coronation Dam cobalt project 90km Southeast of Glencore’s Murrin Murrin Nickel refinery in Western Australia’s north-eastern goldfields.

Drilling results are from the two cross sections drilled either side of the section previously reported. High grade mineralisation now extends to over 200 metres long, 400 metres wide and up to 56 metres thick (average 25 metres). Mineralisation has developed in the regolith profile above an intensely weathered ultramafic unit which was originally a peridotite. The peridotite is approximately 1 kilometre wide and 5.7 kilometres long within the mining tenement which covers 16km2. Results include:

CDRC0042:     8 metres at 0.16% cobalt and 1.0% nickel from surface

CDRC0043:    24 metres at 0.19% cobalt and 1.2% nickel from 8 metres

CDRC0044:    56 metres at 0.06% cobalt and 0.90% nickel from 20 metres

CDRC0045:    32 metres at 0.05% cobalt and 0.80% nickel from 44 metres and;

4 metres at 0.07% cobalt and 0.8% nickel from xx metres

4 metres at 0.09% cobalt and 0.7% nickel from xx metres

CDRC0067:    4 metres at 0.24% cobalt and 1.53% nickel from 76 metres

CDRC0002:    4 metres at 0.05% cobalt and 0.72% nickel from 94 metres

CDRC0003:    26 metres at 0.04% cobalt and 0.72% nickel from 35 metres including:

     5 metres at 0.09% cobalt and 0.97% nickel from 35 metres

CDRC0004:    25 metres at 0.07% cobalt and 0.75% nickel from 15 metres including:

5 metres at 0.09% cobalt and 0.90% nickel from 16 metres and;

    4 metres at 0.11% cobalt and 1.05% nickel from 32 metres

CDRC0005:    38 metres at 0.05% cobalt and 0.78% nickel from 4 metres including:

8 metres at 0.03% cobalt and 0.89% nickel from 4 metres and;

3 metres at 0.04% cobalt and 0.95% nickel from 21 metres and;

     7 metres at 0.12% cobalt and 1.00% nickel from 29 metres

CDRC0006:   2 metres at 0.03% cobalt and 0.58% nickel from 1 metre

 

White Cliff Managing Director Todd Hibberd said: “Further assays at Coronation Dam continue to demonstrate the high grade nature of the cobalt mineralisation. The mineralised zone is now over 200 metres long, 400 metres wide and up to 56 metres thick (average 25 metres). Further assay results should be available shortly and on receipt of the final drilling results the Company will be in a position to select samples for metallurgical testing”.
