At its flagship Mt Alexander Project in Western Australia, St George boasts Australia’s latest nickel-copper sulphide discovery. High-grade nickel-copper-sulphide-PGE mineralisation occurs from just 30m below surface and over a 4.5km strike of the Cathedrals Belt.
The discovery continues to grow with ongoing definition drilling delivering further significant intersections of highgrade mineralisation.
This major discovery comes at a time when the electric vehicle (EV) revolution and trend to alternative energy storage systems is gaining momentum Demand for nickel sulphide – a critical battery metal – is forecast to surge with an upswing in the nickel price already underway.
Preliminary metallurgical tests of the massive sulphides at Mt Alexander produced concentrate with 18% nickel and 32% copper with high values for cobalt and PGEs.
The excellent exploration results at Mt Alexander build confidence in the resource potential at the Project and support Mt Alexander emerging as a major new nickel sulphide camp in Western Australia.
