White Cliff Minerals is very pleased to announce the identification of three compelling nickel sulphide targets on the basal contact of an ultramafic intrusion in Western Australia:

  • EM survey identifies compelling nickel sulphide targets on basal contact of ultramafic intrusion at Coglia prospect
  • Conductors are along strike from rock samples with highly anomalous levels of copper, palladium and platinum considered to be diagnostic of nickel sulphide mineralization

Managing Director, Todd Hibberd commented that, “The ongoing EM surveys continue to deliver exceptional nickel sulphide targets that occur on the margins of intrusive ultramafic units in the correct position for the accumulation of nickel and copper sulphides. Further infill and extension survey will be conducted in conjunction with drilling to ensure that the maximum number top quality targets are generated and can be drill tested quickly.

The identification of these nickel anomalies substantially improves the prospectivity of the Merolia project given that the McKenna (35km) and Coglia (75km) prospects are close to the Windarra nickel mine and associated infrastructure in the event of successful drilling”
