St George Mining has announced that drilling has continued to intersect nickel-copper sulfide mineralization at the Mt Alexander project, located near Leonora in the north-eastern Goldfields region of Western Australia.

MAD95 was completed to a depth of 70m to test for nickel-copper sulphide mineralisation to the west of MAD71 and MAD77 at Stricklands.  

MAD95 was drilled 43m to the west of MAD71 and 20m to the west of MAD77, both of which intersected nickel-copper sulphides, with MAD71 delivering an outstanding intersection of massive nickel-copper sulphides. For further details on MAD71, please see our ASX Release dated 15 December 2017 ‘Assays Confirm Best Ever Intersection at Mt Alexander’.

John Prineas, St George Mining’s Executive Chairman, said: “The intersection of nickel-copper sulphides in MAD95 indicates that the mineralised ultramafic extends to the west of MAD71 and remains open in the western section of the large SAMSON EM anomaly at Stricklands. “Drilling in the current programme has been successful in identifying additional high-grade mineralisation in the expansive Stricklands mineral system. “Further drilling will be planned at Stricklands after the DHEM survey results from the recently completed drill holes are reviewed.”
